Libraries in Cambridge and indeed across the world have been closed since March. This PHaSS session is envisaged as an opportunity for library staff to learn about humanities researchers’ needs and worries about access to resources as closure continues and explain some of the possibilities and restrictions the library is likely to have in the future. We hope to start a discussion about how the library might best help SPRI ’s humanities and social science researchers, continuing Johanne Bruun’s recent presentation on research without access to your ‘field’, to recognise the imperative and developing need for library and archive services. The session is also an opportunity to engage with how these questions of access to information and knowledge are relevant to the case of decolonising the library.

This talk is part of the Polar Humanities and Social Sciences ECR Workshop series.
