Visualising newspaper data
Interested in data visualisation, information design or historic newspapers? We’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. You’ll learn how to work with data in a creative, hands-on way, while getting an overview of the Library’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. We’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 you’re interested and can make one or other of these dates, please contact Yann.Ryan@bl.uk for more information.
