Great minds come together at the British Library. Ours is the place to meet, to work, and best of all, to be inspired.

Ranked among the great institutions of the world, the Library's treasures span almost three millennia and come from all corners of the world. Every day, thousands of researchers, visitors and students access our 150 million items online, in our reading rooms and galleries and attend our public events, learning centre and community engagement programme.

Corporate partnerships are vital to our work, from enabling our exhibitions to reach wider and more diverse audiences, to enhancing learning opportunities for young people. There are a variety of ways your organisation can get involved and each partnership will be tailored for your business, marketing or corporate responsibility objectives. We have a very exciting few years ahead of us, with a fantastic programme and an ambitious new vision.

Exhibition sponsorship
Each year we present two major temporary exhibitions in our main gallery as well as staging a variety of themed events and displays. Our visitor numbers are increasing and 94% of our audience is ABC1 and 44% is aged between 35 and 50 years of age.
