Interested in data visualisation, information design or historic newspapers? Weâ€™re looking for a small group of volunteers to take part in some trial workshops in October, being run in collaboration with London College of Communication. Youâ€™ll learn how to work with data in a creative, hands-on way, while getting an overview of the Libraryâ€™s digital newspaper collection and how you might use its data.
Volunteers from any background are welcome: you don't need to have expertise in working with data. All you need is some enthusiasm, ideas, and an interest in learning more about one of the areas above. Weâ€™ll provide all the necessary supplies, including the tea and biscuits.
The workshops will be held at The British Library in London on October 2 and October 30, between 17:00 and 19:00.
If youâ€™re interested and can make one or other of these dates, please contact Yann.Ryan@bl.uk for more information.
