As part of the continuous development of the Study Room we have commissioned a range of artists and commentators to write personal Study Room Guides to help navigate users through this resource.
The idea is to enable Study Room users to experience the materials in a new way and highlight materials that they may not have otherwise come across.
The following Study Room Guides are available to read in the Study Room. Downloadable pdf files are also available below.
