Enabling innovative research with British Library digital collections

06 July 2023

Our team at Digital Humanities 2023 Conference, 10-14 July

Three of us from the British Library Digital Research Team will be attending Digital Humanities 2023 in Graz, Austria next week. The last DH Conference we attended was in Utrecht in 2019 and we can’t wait to participate again in person this year. 

We are looking forward to meeting new and old DH-ers and to having exciting in-person conversations in between the conference sessions throughout the week. 

In particular we want to invite you to come and visit us during the conference poster session on Wednesday 12 July from 18:00. There will be drinks and nibbles on offer and ample time for discussions.

Here is a list of our posters and we look forward to talking to you about our collaborations and projects:

Rossitza will present a poster about collaborations as part of her AHRC-RLUK Professional Practice Fellowship project Datafication and reuse of the descriptions of the incunabula collection at the British Library (pp.505-506)

As part of the Living with Machines project Mia contributed to the poster about Metadata Enrichment in the Living with Machines Project: User-focused Collaborative Database Development in a Digital Humanities Context (pp.553-555)

Stella will present the UK Digital Comics: Challenges and Opportunities of a Collaborative Doctoral Partnership. A Co-designed Comic Poster (pp.596-597)

We will also be at some of the pre-conference workshops on Tuesday. Rossitza will attend the all-day OCR4all - Open-Source OCR and HTR Across the Centuries, and Stella will participate in a couple of half-day workshops: the AudiAnnotate Workshop with Radio Venceremos, Rebel Radio Station and SpokenWeb: Using IIIF with AV to Build Editions and Exhibits and Creating, storing, and sharing your own web archives with open source Webrecorder tools
