Join us to celebrate the launch of the British Library’s new website, which showcases the Library’s sports-related collections, and looks at the phenomenon of the Olympic Games – and London 2012 in particular –through the lens of social science. The website has been created by a team led by Gill Ridgley in Social Science Collections and Research.
Our speakers will talk about aspects of their Olympic Games-related research. We will also discuss the issues surrounding the capture and archiving of London 2012 publications and documents for current and future generations of social scientists. A panel discussion will round off the event, followed by a drinks reception, where you can meet fellow academics and London 2012 stakeholders.
