  7. 7. 7@BL_Labs @BL_DigiSchol #bldigital https://goo.gl/gy1IU4 Why are doing this? • Working closely with and listening to those who want use our digital collections and data for their work and helping to build services, tools and processes to support them • We can learn how we are and should be supporting them. – Is the access to digital collections we provide sufficient? – Do we have the right tools? – Do we provide the right support? – Where are the gaps between what they want and what we can give? – How do we build the bridges to overcome them? – Many more reasons…
  8. 8. 8@BL_Labs @BL_DigiSchol #bldigital https://goo.gl/gy1IU4 Some Lessons Learned so far… • Everything starts from an idea and conversation! • Need to have several conversations with several stakeholders and tap into their tacit knowledge that isn’t always written down. • Expectations change when researchers see the data, systems and experience the ‘culture’ of the organisation • We tend to work with researchers who can be ‘flexible’ with their research questions and are willing to embrace challenges • Often misunderstandings because of jargon & different meaning of words • Embrace dirty data, it may never be perfect!
  9. 9. 9@BL_Labs @BL_DigiSchol #bldigital https://goo.gl/gy1IU4 Some Lessons Learned so far…(2) • Many researchers have the domain knowledge but lack the technical skills to use Digital Research methods. Should they be teamed up with those that have problems that need solving (Computing) or get trained? • Identifying / bridging gaps for researchers to use data, help them navigate through the Library to get the data they want • Huge appetite to use digital content & data (e.g. Flickr Commons stats) • Start small and simple, but think big! • Embrace serendipity, work fast, give it energy. • Learn the lessons, tell the positive stories and move on! • Fail faster (don’t be afraid), small experiments, reject perfectionism

    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.

    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.

    Katrina Navickas was particularly interested in the <Click>Chartist Movement who were a group who were campaigning for the vote for working people. <Click>They were the biggest popular movement for democracy in 19th century British history, just as this is early picture shows a huge monster meeting at Kennington Common<Click>She wanted to use a combination of manual and computational methods to explore our Digitised Newspapers to find out when and where they met and plot them on map. <Click>and hopefully unearthing new history.

    Dina Malkova was the winner of Commercial category. <Click>Inspired by a small digitised fragment of an <Click>illustration of Alice’s Adventures Under Ground original handwritten manuscript<Click>Dina made handmade and bespoke bow ties and cufflinks. <Click>You can still buy these items in the Alice pop up shop in London and of course online on Etsy.

    Indexing BL the 1 million & Mapping the Maps – was led by James Heald and collaboration with others <Click>They produced an index of 1 million 'Mechanical Curator collection' images on <Click>Wikimedia Commons from a collection of largely un-described images. <Click>This gave rise to finding 50,000 maps within the collection partially through a map-tag-a-thon <Click>These are now being geo-referenced. <Click>
