Once again the Library has had great pleasure in being part of the Young Graduates for Museums and Galleries programme (YGMG).

YGMG open day-016-27072011.jpg

 

The scheme is now in its seventh year, and targets talented and gifted students (16-18 years of age) from inner London, giving them the opportunity to see behind the scenes of some of the major museums and galleries in London. Those involved are: the Natural History Museum, Tate, British Museum, the National Portrait Gallery, Victoria and Albert Museum and the Science Museum.

The students are given tours by staff, with the opportunity to see the collections and learn what is involved in working in these different organisations. The idea is to enthuse and stimulate interest in working in the fields of sciences, art and history.

Students are then given the opportunity to work at one of the organisations on an internship during the summer holidays. The Library hosted a total of 25 students, who were shown a display of some of the Library's rare books and manuscripts, and given a talk by Lisa Di Tommaso (Assistant Librarian, Earth Sciences).

 

It is always really interesting to see the reactions of the students, many of whom have never used such primary sources before and are amazed to see books that are over 350 years old!
