    My name is Mahendra Mahey and I work on a project called British Library Labs. We are based at the British Library in London, in the Digital Scholarship department and we work closely with the Digital Research team there. It’s been running for three years now and is funded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.

    The picture you can see is inside the main building in London, it’s the King’s Library – King George the Third’s personal library! Sometimes known as the ‘stack’, I walk past this everyday and I sometimes forget that the collections the British Library have are truly staggering! We currently estimate them to exceed <click>150 million items, representing every age of written civilisation and every known language. Our archives now contain the earliest surviving printed book in the world, the Diamond Sutra, written in Chinese and dating from 868 AD….
    So some big numbers…
    Over …<click>14 million books
    <click>60 million patents
    <click>8 million stamps
    <click>4 million maps
    <click>3 million sound recordings
    <click>1.6 million music scores
    <click>over .3 million manuscripts
    <click>0.8 million serials titles (which are of course made up of many many volumes/editions), this is where a lot of our content is, just in case you thought the numbers didn’t add up!

    So <Click> ‘how’ do we try and engage those who might be interested in the BL’s digital collections and data? <Click>
  • 17 Seconds (53 Words)
    <Click>The British Library is one of the largest Library’s in the world <Click> with an estimated 180 million physical items, with only a small proportion being digitised. <Click>We estimate this is around 1-2%, but no one really knows exactly how much. However, increasingly more items are being stored as ‘born’ digital, such as the UK Web Archive<Click>

    In a nutshell the project encourages researchers, artists, entrepreneurs, educators and anyone else,
    to ‘experiment’ with our digital collections and data. We are particularly interested in those who have questions which focus on the potential to find and create NEW things through access to the digital content. For example, being able to ask a question across thousands of digitised books or newspapers using computational techniques would not feasible using manual methods. Let’s look at a clear example.
  • <click>The British Library faces many challenges of access to our Digital collections!
    <click> Sometimes digital content is only available onsite due to license restrictions,
    <click>or even only on a specific computer in a reading room! Technically there are very few reasons why digital content can’t be online
    <click> though it might be too big or hasn’t been transferred from other digital storage media.
    <click>Sometimes access is through a paywall. Finally,
    <click>some content is in the happy sunny place, online, open and freely available.
    The real reasons why there are challenges to accessing digital content are of course human. They require different approaches from the Library and may often involve an honest, open dialogue and negotiation with the publishers.
    The Labs project has tried to address this problem my creating a ‘residency model’ for researchers to work intensively with a digital collection on-site, so as to not infringe access conditions, I will say more about this later.
