Welcome back! We hope you all had a restful and enjoyable break and are enjoying the lovely late summer sun we are having this week.
Student Research Journal: Issue 4 published!
We are so excited to share that the fourth issue of the University’s Student Research Journal has now been published and is available to view online, or you can see one of two printed volumes in the Arts and Social Sciences library. This completely student-produced journal is a huge achievement for all the students involved – we’d like to give a special mention to (now ex-) Student Fellow Layla Savage for the work she has put into it.
It’s our birthday!
This week marks five years of the BILT Briefing and six years of the BILT Blog! We’re so proud of the growth we’ve seen over the last six years (we get more readers per month now than we did in all of 2018!) but we think we can be doing more.
We think it’s a good point to step back and look at what we are doing, why we are doing it and whether we can do anything to improve. We’ve created a survey to try and glean some feedback from our amazing readers. We want to make sure we’re publishing the sort of stuff you want to read about in the formats you want to see it. We would hugely appreciate it if you could take two minutes (literally, just two!) to complete this survey. Many thanks!
