Amplified discussions surrounding the event

We used CoverItLive to capture the Twitter discussions surrounding the event hashtag #lis_dream3 and to provide a forum for non-Twitter users to participate in the event remotely. A full archive of these conversations is available online.

The venue – British Library Conference Centre

The workshop venue was the British Library’s state of the art Conference Centre. Located in central London, the British Library Conference Centre is within easy walking distance of three mainline railway stations – St Pancras (Eurostar terminal), Euston and King’s Cross – and six tube lines, and is thus at the heart of the UK and European transportation network.
