British Library Labs

British Library Labs is an initiative funded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation which supports and inspires the public use of the British Library’s digital collections and data in exciting and innovative ways. We actively encourage scholars and innovators to work with us, thereby supporting the British Library’s mission to guarantee that the wealth and diversity of the Library’s intellectual digital heritage is available for the research, creativity and fulfilment of everyone.
