The Lab delivers creative, engaging and new ways to explore the Library’s collections, data sets and services through a diverse range of digital experiences.
Existing and emerging technologies are explored to build a range of digital experiences onsite, online and on tour. The Lab encourages creative partnerships with digital peers, cultural heritage organisations, students, researchers, artists and creators.
The Lab is a hub for experimentation, new ways of design thinking, practices and building digital experiences encourage innovation and collaboration. These values can be seen in the Labs first API experiment, Loom. This data visualisation shows a different way to experience some of the Librarys collection rather than through a traditional search. Explore Loom and the other projects the DX Lab are creating.
