Building Library Labs
13 September, 2018 @ 9:00 am - 14 September, 2018 @ 4:40 pm
Around the world leading national, state and university libraries are creating ‘lab type environments’ so that their digitised cultural heritage collections and data can be opened up and re-used for creative, innovative and inspiring projects by everyone such as digital researchers, artists, entrepreneurs and educators.
This two-day event 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 as spaces are limited, 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 firstname.lastname@example.org with a brief explanation as to why it would be important for you to attend.
