It was a really interesting day and included sessions by Richard Davies of the British Library about Planning for digitisation and Patricia Sleeman, ULCC about [digital] Preservation issues. I presented a case study which had been written as part of the Look-Here! Project.
Alongside me were some fascinating presentations:
- James Allen, Bodleian Library, University of Oxford, who showed us their amazing digitisation project Treasures of the Bodleian.
I have to confess to having not been to the British Library before and was struck by the vibrancy of the place. It seemed so alive with people everywhere on laptops and chatting with friends and colleagues. I would definitely recommend a visit; I just wish I had had more time to explore.
