The House of Commons Library is celebrating as this year marks 200 hundred years since its first librarian was appointed.  You can find out more about the library’s history here or watch the video at the end of this blog.

One aspect of the library’s work, relevant to anyone starting to research a contemporary topic, is the production of impartial research briefings on a wide range of current issues.  While these are intended to help members of Parliament by providing them with good quality impartial background information, they are extremely useful to anyone starting to research a current issue. They can be searched by date or topic.

Some recent briefings which may be of interest include:

Brexit and European Citizenship

Brexit the exit bill

Brexit and financial services
