At the British Library, millions of digital items and objects are being created and collected for the world to use, such as digitised manuscripts, sheet music, newspapers, books, maps, archived websites, radio programmes, performances, TV news broadcasts, and artworks. British Library Labs Manager Mahendra Mahey will take you on a journey through some extraordinary examples of how these digital collections are being used for research, creativity, innovation, education, inspiration and enjoyment all around the world. This talk emphasises the innovative work of British Library Labs, sometimes known as ‘BL Labs’. You will hear about the global efforts of BL Labs in leading and building an international collaborative network of digital cultural heritage innovation Labs (or GLAM Labs); sharing practice, knowledge, tools and experience across borders to ensure institutions and the digital cultural heritage they hold are increasingly open and accessible for the whole world to enjoy.
