        Subject: British Library Labs seminar, 13 April 2015

The Digital Humanities at The Open University network is proud to
present the next event in its Digital Humanities in Practice series:

Exploring Digital Collections and Data: Innovative Experiments and
Future Opportunities at the British Library

Date: 13 April 2015

Time: 1pm-3pm

Venue: Library Presentation Room, The Open University, Walton Hall,
Milton Keynes

Speakers: Mahendra Mahey (BL Labs), Bob Nicholson (Edge Hill
University), Ben O’Steen (BL Labs)

The session, organised specifically for Digital Humanities at the Open
University, will cover a talk about the British Library Labs project
which gets scholars to use the British Library's incredible digital
collections for their research and a session on the current Labs’
competition which closes on the 30 April 2015. Bob Nicholson, one of
the winners of the 2014 Labs competition will give a first-hand
account of what it is like to work with the British Library and it's
digital content and give an overview of the project he worked on, 'The
Victorian Meme Machine'. Ben O’Steen will give an overview of the
‘Mechanical Curator’ and other interesting experiments with British
Library digital content and data. The team will also be providing
access to terabytes of data on the day which you will be able to
explore to get an idea of the kinds of digital content they have on
offer and begin to understand the challenges researchers face when
using it for your research / work and ideas. The event will end with a
question / answer and discussion session.

The event is open to all. Please register with Matthew Pemberton
(matthew.pemberton at open.ac.uk) by 8 April 2015 if you wish to attend
this seminar. A sandwich lunch will be served at 12.30 to registered
