Event description

Description

Royal Danish Library and British Library logosThe second Building Library Labs event is being hosted by the Royal Danish Library, Copenhagen (Denmark) in collaboration with the British Library.

Around the world leading national, state and university libraries, galleries, archives and musuems are creating 'lab type environments' so that their digitised cultural heritage collections and data can be opened up and used for creative, innovative and inspiring projects by everyone such as digital researchers, artists, entrepreneurs and educators.

This is the second two-day event (the first took place in September 2018) which is a forum for discussion and networking, bringing together national, state and university libraries with existing or planned digital 'Labs-style' teams from around the world. It's a chance to network, share lessons learned, and tell each other about innovative projects and services that are using digital collections / data in new and interesting ways.

Please note spaces are limited to 30, this event page has been set up for attendees already invited.

If you are interested in coming to this event and have not been invited yet, please email labs@bl.uk with a brief explanation as to why it would be important for you to attend.

The event is organised by the British Library Labs project and Royal Danish Library.
