The Library is involved in a variety of projects, including those that are externally funded and working with national partners.

  • Observing the 1980s - JISC funded project November 2011 - January 2013. Observing the 1980s brings together, for the first time, 'voices' from both the Mass Observation Collections and the British Library Oral History Collections.  This material offers a unique and inspiring insight into the lives and opinions of British people from all social classes and regions during the 1980s.
