Growing Knowledge Exhibition

 

Hello there,

 

we are pleased to invite you to the next UCL Digital Excursion which will take place at the British Library on 25 October 5.30-7.30 pm.

By signing up, you will be the first to experience the "Growing Knowledge" Exhibition - an initiative designed to demonstrate the vision for future digital research services at the British Library. This which will introduce you to a number of features including digital signage, video demonstrations, interactive welcome animations, an interface touch-table and a prototype “Researcher’s Desktop” application. You will be able to sample each of the tools and applications presented, including some of the latest creations by Microsoft and Hewlett Packard.

The exhibition explores the value of libraries and research in present and future Digital times, the use of social networks and social media, as well as asks questions about the inter-relations and synergies between research and technology.


You can find out more about the initiative here: http://www.bl.uk/growingknowledge/index.html

 

The programme will be as follows:

17.30: one of the curators from the British Library will give an introductory talk about the exhibition.

18.00: hands-on time for you to explore the exhibition and try out the digital facilities.

18.30: Event closure, with possibility to chat on if you wish.

 

Refreshments will be provided. 

 

Please note that the CIBER group at UCL is evaluating the exhibition for the BL, and a researcher, Peter Williams, will hope to informally interview as many people as possible, either at the event or at a later date, about your experiences.

If you wish to attend, follow the link below, register your details and bring the printout of the invitation with you on the day. We will be meeting you outside the British Library.

 

Looking forward to meet you,

The UCL Centre for Digital Humanities Team
