Join your fellow SLA members and discover more about the British Library by taking our dedicated tour of the building and take in some of its most special areas. These include The King’s Library Collection which once belonged to George III, The Business & IP Centre and the Klencke Atlas, the second-largest atlas in the world. Our guide will introduce you to their favourite items on display in the Sir John Ritblat Gallery where over 200 of the Library’s most iconic reside.

Afterwards, members have the opportunity to mingle over drinks and to chat about what they’ve seen at a lovely pub, the nearby Somers Town Coffee House
