About this blog
The Social Science Collections and Research team at the British Library supports researchers by opening up and enabling access to our content and resources. Our aim is to inspire research, promote collaboration and knowledge exchange, and support capacity building among the current and next generation of researchers.
This site takes the Olympic and Paralympic Games as a platform upon which to introduce the wide range of materials held at the British Library which can support research into the social aspects of sport. It is aimed at a cross section of people, from those who are intrigued by the issues which underlie the hosting of the Games, to those who are actively involved in the latest research.
