Digital or innovation “labs” in library or museum settings have been around for about ten years. The lab is usually a place for experimenting with digital collections in novel ways to reach new audiences or to explore new technologies. These, sometimes temporary, teams within a library, archives, or museum/gallery (GLAM) can support a range of internal and external digital services and programs.
Not so long ago, participants of the “labbers” (lab-interested) community identified a need to articulate lab values, share relevant experience and case studies, and suggest some best practices for those starting up cultural heritage innovation labs. Through funding provided by the University College London, Qatar, Qatar University, the British Library and the Library of Congress, a coordinating group engaged Book Sprint, Ltd, a rapid book production and collaboration methodology, and published a call for participants to write a book about GLAM labs in five days.
In late September 2019, a group of 16 librarians, developers, archivists, curators and academics from around the world landed in Doha, Qatar, to embark on a Book Sprint. Together, in five long days, they wrote a book called “Open a GLAM Lab” to galvanize and shape the emerging labs community.
In this webinar on 20 January at 14:00 CET, Sophie-Carolin Wagner of Austrian National Library, Sarah Ames of the National Library of Scotland and Mahendra Mahey of British Library Lab will share more details about the Book Sprint methodology and the contents of the book itself, which was released publicly during Open Access Week, October 21-27, 2019.Find out more »

his webinar will introduce the key factors in planning library spaces, followed by a case study of the recently completed and much acclaimed Student Centre at University College London (UCL).
The first talk by Karen Latimer — Library Design Consultant — will cover the planning stage, the construction phase and post-occupancy evaluation. Topics such as preparing the brief/programme, visits and surveys, user needs, envisaging future services and challenges along the way will be discussed.
The second talk by Ben Meunier — Director of Operations at UCL Library Services — will look at how the Student Centre at UCL addressed the needs of students and aligned with the Strategic Plan for the University.
