British Library Labs Staff Award 2018 Submission Form
Tell us what exciting, innovative and cool things you, or your colleagues, have done with the British Library’s digital collections or data! We want to highlight some of the amazing work that we do at the Library, and give recognition to the people who do it.

The 2018 British Library Labs Staff Award will recognise a team, or current member of staff, that has used the Library’s digital collections or data in innovative ways.

Perhaps the project you were involved in, or wish to nominate, demonstrated the development of new knowledge or was an activity that delivered commercial value to the Library. Did your colleague create an artistic work that inspired, stimulated, amazed and provoked? Do you know of a project where quality learning experiences for learners were developed using the Library’s digital content?

Staff may nominate a current member of staff or a team for the award, or nominate their own project using this form.

The deadline for submission is 12:00 (BST), Friday 12th October, 2018.

The winner(s) will be announced on Monday 12th November 2018 at the British Library Labs Annual Symposium ( where they will be invited to talk about their work.

The Staff Award complements the British Library Labs Awards, introduced in 2015, that recognise outstanding work that has been done in the broader community. Last year’s winners drew attention to artistic, research, learning/teaching and entrepreneurial activities that used our digital collections.

British Library Labs ( is a project within the Digital Scholarship department that supports and inspires the use of our digital collections and data in exciting and innovative ways. It is funded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation and the British Library.
