BL Labs 2015 Symposium, 2 Nov 2015, British Library, London

Dear Colleagues,

The third annual British Library Labs Symposium (2015) is taking place on Monday 2nd November 2015 from 09:30–17:00 in the British Library Conference Centre, St Pancras.  The event is free, although you must book your ticket, so please don’t delay as last year’s event was a sell out!

The Symposium showcases exciting, innovative and inspiring projects which use the British Library’s digital content, and provides a platform for new ideas, development, networking and debate in Digital Scholarship.

This  year’s event includes a keynote addressing current activity in digital scholarship within interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary settings, presented by David De Roure, Professor of e-research at the University of Oxford and Director of the Oxford e-Research Centre. A panel session in the afternoon, will discuss issues of opening up digital content for memory organisations, chaired by George Oates, Director of Good, Form & Spectacle Ltd. Throughout the day, presentations will be given about various digital projects; the BL Labs Competition (2015) winners, winners of the BL Labs Awards (2015) and Alice’s Adventures Off the Map competition.

We strongly recommend you book your place for the Symposium as soon as possible using the link below:


Kind Regards,

The BL Labs team

The workshop will offer a basic introduction to issues around tabular

for both presentational and analytical purposes. Participants will gain

visualisations based on it using a variety of free sites and tools. We 
shall suggest and discuss how these methods can be applicable to your
