Mahendra Mahey, Project Manager, British Library Labs, is coming to UCL to give a lunchtime talk and an update on the project.
British Library Labs is about engaging researchers and software developers to carry out some innovative research and development with the Library’s amazing digital collections, through competitions and various other activities such as hack events, virtual hangouts etc.
Mahendra will give an update about the project and how students and staff can engage with Labs which will include the chance for discussion and engaging with some of the Library’s digital collections and data.
He will also talk about the current competition that is being run (deadline for entries is the 26th June 2013), where you could win up to £3000 and a chance to have a residency at the British Library to work on your idea with the direct financial and expert support from British Library staff.
Please feel free to bring your lunch!
