Clifford Stetner asks

'If you had a couple of days in your entire life to spend at the British
Library on a graduate student pass, what would you look at?'

St. Pancras Station.

No question. The recorded sound archive, where I would drink in the
great performances of the past that are otherwise quite lost.

To get a pass, go to the admissions office to the right of the
information desk as you come in.  They will want evidence of your status
and that you have a project or research area.  For further and more
detailed information, check their web site at <portico.bl.uk>.

The first thing I'd look at would be the building itself: in my minority
opinion one of the most architecturally under-rated buildings in the
City.  More practical advice: arrive as close to opening time as
possible.  At least some of the books you order may have to be brought
in from other locations.  They're a lot quicker than they used to be,
however.
