Hi Everyone,

In December last year the British Library released over a million images 
on to Flickr Commons. The images were taken from the pages of 17th, 18th 
and 19th century books digitised by Microsoft and gifted to the British 
Library. One-year on and they celebrated with an anniversary event 
looking at what researchers and artists have been doing with the 
released images and considering what the next phase is for the British 
Library Labs.

I was lucky enough to go along and have written a post about it on the 
OpenGLAM blog:

Season's greetings!
