Digitising two centuries of Indian printed books
 
02:01
The British Library holds the world’s largest single collection of early printed South Asian-language books, many of them now unique. Its collections include 20,000 Indian manuscripts, the earliest of which date back almost 2,000 years, as well as countless other materials from the region. This collection is the most important outside South Asia, and offers a wealth of research material tracing India’s rich literary heritage. The Two Centuries of Indian Print: 1713–1914 project will digitise and make freely available this rich collection of early South Asian-language early printed books, ensuring preservation of fragile originals for future generations. The project will encompass digitising 1,000 books in Bengali, amounting to 200,000 pages, as well as enhancing the catalogue records to automate searching and aid discovery by researchers. Demand for early Bengali printed works in the Library’s collection is particularly high, and digitisation will make them available to researchers beyond the Library’s Reading Rooms, giving global access to the British Library’s South Asian printed collections, many of which are now rare or unique. Promoting advances in research, access to cultural heritage, and progress in international relations lie at the heart of the British Library’s core purposes, and Two Centuries of Indian Print will work toward fulfilling these goals. The initiative is in partnership with School of Cultural Texts and Records (SCTR) of Jadavpur University, Srishti Institute of Art, Design and Technology, and the Library at SOAS University of London, working with the National Library of India, the National Mission on Libraries, and other institutions in India.

The New CIP Data Block: How to Use It for Cataloging
 
01:00:00
In July 2015 the Library of Congress implemented a new layout to the Cataloging in Publication Data block that appears on the verso of the title page of print books and on the copyright page of electronic books. The new layout is the result of an analysis of survey results done in 2014 that asked institutions what should be kept, added, or removed from the CIP Data Block to meet the needs of the twenty-first century bibliographic environment. There are numerous changes to the layout including the use of labels to clearly identify the different components within the block, addition of RDA and electronic data elements, and a URL that links directly to the LC catalog for easy download of bibliographic records. This webinar will introduce attendees to the new CIP Data Block, including instruction on how to interpret the elements of the data block for cataloging purposes. Presented by Karl Debus-Lopez and Caroline Saccucci on 10/14/15.

03:03
The World and Traditional Music section of the British Library holds a unique collection of South Asian material recorded by Dutch ethnomusicologist Dr Arnold Adriaan Bake (1899-1963). This collection spans not only many decades but also many formats of audio and visual material including wax cylinders, tefi-bands, open reel tapes and 16mm black and white and colour silent films, providing a complex and detailed document of music and ritual in South Asia from the 1930s to the late 1950s. This video comprises edited highlights taken from Bake's arrival in Nepal in 1931. It features scenes from Indra Jaatra festival in Kathmandu. Bake created a unique document of the religious music of Nepal through his films of the annual festivals. His films also represented a changing culture and built landscape that would in part vanish in the earthquakes of 1933.

Brian Eno - Music For Installations – Live At The British Library (Part 1)
 
08:30
On 23rd March, 2018 The British Library hosted an evening dedicated to musician, artist, activist and thinker Brian Eno. While his recording projects and collaborations are endlessly known, his work as a visual artist covers an even longer span of time and his experiments with light and video have been exhibited all over the globe. The special event showcased a talk from Brian and included music and visuals from some of his installations that have featured in galleries, airports, hotels and public spaces from St Petersburg to the Sydney Opera House. Tickets were extremely limited but for those not lucky enough to attend in person, the event was filmed and highlights compiled into a 2-part film. Brian Eno's Music For Installations box sets are available to order now from the links below.

(Rare!) Willam Ewart Gladstone - The Phonograph Salutation (1888)
 
03:11
Another real historic recording. William Ewart Gladstone, often regarded as one of the greatest British Prime Minister, recorded his greetings (Salutation) to Edison, on a Yellow Parafine Wax Cylinder (later moulded to a Blue Amberol copy), December 18th, 1888. The original Cylinder is now preserved in Edison National Historic Site in New Jersey, USA. (NHS Object Catalogue number : EDIS -SRP-39852) Here is the transcription of the recording. CHARLES GOURAUD : London, 18th December 1888. To Edison from Colonel Gouraud, introducing Mr Gladstone. The Phonograph Salutation. The latest-born of science and American genius bends its knee of steel and bows its neck of iron in reverential homage before the veteran statesman of England. Mr Gladstone, the phonograph salutes you, and through the medium of the phonograph, Mr Edison greets you. Now, Edison, listen to a voice that has electrified its generation - the voice of William Ewart Gladstone; GLADSTONE: Dear Mr Edison, I am profoundly indebted to you for, not the entertainment only, but the instruction and the marvels of one of the most remarkable evenings which it has been my privilege to enjoy. The request, that you have done me the honour to make - to receive the record of my voice - is one that I cheerfully comply with so far as it lies in my power; though I lament to say that the voice which I transmit to you is only the relic of an organ, the employment of which has been overstrained. Yet I offer to you as much as I possess and so much as old age has left me, with the utmost satisfaction, as being, at least, a testimony to the instruction and delight that I have received from your marvellous invention. As to future consequences it is impossible to anticipate them. All I see is that wonders upon wonders are opening before us. Your great country is leading the way in the important work of invention. Heartily do we wish it well. And to you, as one of its greatest celebrities, allow me to offer my hearty good wishes and earnest prayers that you may long live to witness its triumphs in all that appertains to the well-being of mankind. William Ewart Gladstone. The recording is really hard to understand (barely audible!) since Gladstone was too far from the recording horn, and it was very difficult to understand even back in 1888. So what Edison did (*He collected Celebrities' recordings to use them as commercial endorsements of his Phonograph) was to make a false copies of Gladstone speech, so there are more than three different recordings of "Gladstone" today. BBC have broadcasted one of the forgeries on their documentary program, and somebody uploaded another fake on YT (another forgery, which belong to the British Library), but this recording I present here, with the introduction of Colonel Charles Gouraud, is the genuine, authentic recording. I enhanced the Gladstone speech as best as I can (I left the Gouraud recording un-enhanced.), but it is still very hard to understand. But, anyway, it's nice to hear someone great actually TALKING from more than 120 years ago!

Competition on Recognition of Early Indian Printed Documents - REID2017
 
05:54
ICDAR Competition on Recognition of Early Indian printed Documents. The British Library is currently undertaking a ground breaking project, Two Centuries of Indian Print, to digitise and make available as open access 4,000 early printed Indian books (1713-1914) written in Bengali. Complementary material, the Quarterly Lists, consist of catalogue records for all books published in India between 1867 and 1967, will also be made openly available through the project. As part of this project we would like to pose a challenge to find an optimal solution for accurately and automatically transcribing the Bengali books and Quarterly Lists, to form a unique dataset that can be used with computational tools and methods, and to enable full-text search and discovery. http://www.primaresearch.org/REID2017 See also our other competition on the Recognition of Documents with Complex Layouts: http://www.primaresearch.org/RDCL2017

Romance Of The North Sea ~ Johnny Pearson and His Orchestra
 
02:54
John Valmore Pearson (18 June 1925 – 20 March 2011), known as Johnny Pearson, was a British composer, orchestra leader and pianist. He led the Top of the Pops orchestra for sixteen years, wrote a catalogue of library music, and had many of his pieces used as the theme music to television series. Born in Chesterfield, Derbyshire, Johnny Pearson showed talent with the piano at an early age. By nine, he had won a scholarship with the London Academy of Music. Here he spent four years under English pianist, Solomon. In his teens, he would give classical recitals, but his true love at the time was jazz. His first band was the Rhythm Makers. During the second world war, Johnny Pearson served in the famous Royal Artillery Band and Orchestra at Woolwich. After World War II, he signed up and became one of the founding members of the Malcolm Mitchell Trio, before leaving in 1954 after Malcolm Mitchell broke up the group to start a solo career. During his time with the trio, Johnny Pearson toured England and Europe, playing the West End and theatres. The early Malcolm Mitchell Trio consisted of Malcolm Mitchell, Teddy Broughton and Johnny Pearson. After leaving the Malcolm Mitchell Trio, Pearson turned his talents to British radio, as well as performing in the Peter York Concert Orchestra. By 1960, he was conducting the Romance in Rhythm Orchestra. He recorded two singles for Parlophone, "Waterfall" in mid 1959, and "Theme from The L Shaped Room" in 1962. He was then offered a solo album deal with Oriole Records, which first teamed him up with John Schroeder. The Oriole album, Piano Sweet - Piano Wild was released in 1962 and was Johnny Pearson's first full vinyl album release. Also there was a 45 single released, "Ooh La La", in 1962 but this track and its b-side did not appear on the album. After the Oriole releases, Johnny Pearson continued to perform with various concert orchestras until 1964. As leader of the Johnny Pearson Orchestra, he reached number 8 in the United Kingdom chart in early 1972 with "Sleepy Shores", the theme from the television series Owen, M.D. (1971–73). The Johnny Pearson Orchestra, which as a musical project was begun in 1972, ran side by side with his other projects. At the time, these projects included working on albums with John Schroeder for Sounds Orchestral and also providing library music to Britain's KPM Records. Instead of the slightly jazzy sounding, Sounds Orchestral albums, Pearson was offered a project for easy listening and romance music, based on the success of his "Sleepy Shores" hit. This time he teamed up with music executive Larry Page, who wanted to move his label Penny Farthing into the easy listening genre. The albums were released outside the UK in Europe, Australia, Canada and the US. In 1978, Larry Page decided to rename his Penny Farthing label to Rampage Records, to reflect a more modern outlook. One of the first singles and albums from the Rampage label, would be another of Pearson's international hits, the eponymous theme from All Creatures Great and Small. (From : Wiki) .

Here he spent four years under English pianist, Solomon. In his teens, he would give classical recitals, but his true love at the time was jazz. His first band was the Rhythm Makers. During the second world war, Johnny Pearson served in the famous Royal Artillery Band and Orchestra at Woolwich. After World War II, he signed up and became one of the founding members of the Malcolm Mitchell Trio, before leaving in 1954 after Malcolm Mitchell broke up the group to start a solo career. During his time with the trio, Johnny Pearson toured England and Europe, playing the West End and theatres. The early Malcolm Mitchell Trio consisted of Malcolm Mitchell, Teddy Broughton and Johnny Pearson. After leaving the Malcolm Mitchell Trio, Pearson turned his talents to British radio, as well as performing in the Peter York Concert Orchestra. By 1960, he was conducting the Romance in Rhythm Orchestra. He recorded two singles for Parlophone, "Waterfall" in mid 1959, and "Theme from The L Shaped Room" in 1962. He was then offered a solo album deal with Oriole Records, which first teamed him up with John Schroeder. The Oriole album, Piano Sweet - Piano Wild was released in 1962 and was Johnny Pearson's first full vinyl album release. Also there was a 45 single released, "Ooh La La", in 1962 but this track and its b-side did not appear on the album. After the Oriole releases, Johnny Pearson continued to perform with various concert orchestras until 1964. As leader of the Johnny Pearson Orchestra, he reached number 8 in the United Kingdom chart in early 1972 with "Sleepy Shores", the theme from the television series Owen, M.D. (1971–73). The Johnny Pearson Orchestra, which as a musical project was begun in 1972, ran side by side with his other projects. At the time, these projects included working on albums with John Schroeder for Sounds Orchestral and also providing library music to Britain's KPM Records. Instead of the slightly jazzy sounding, Sounds Orchestral albums, Pearson was offered a project for easy listening and romance music, based on the success of his "Sleepy Shores" hit. This time he teamed up with music executive Larry Page, who wanted to move his label Penny Farthing into the easy listening genre. The albums were released outside the UK in Europe, Australia, Canada and the US. In 1978, Larry Page decided to rename his Penny Farthing label to Rampage Records, to reflect a more modern outlook. One of the first singles and albums from the Rampage label, would be another of Pearson's international hits, the eponymous theme from All Creatures Great and Small. (From : Wiki) .

(30 Jan 2009) SHOTLIST 1. Wide of street leading to Vatican 2. Long shot of Saint Peter's Basilica 3. Entrance to conference 4. Ancient Hebrew manuscripts in glass case 5. Various close ups of manuscripts 6. SOUNDBITE (English) Mordechay Lewy, Ambassador of Israel to the Holy See: "The Vatican library has inherited a lot of other libraries and the other libraries were in contact with Jewish collectors because Hebrew manuscripts were always very much in the limelight of scholars since medieval times. You know that the knowledge of Hebrew was by people who were well educated, scholars. Always interesting because it is the language of the Bible." 7. Various close ups of manuscript 8. SOUNDBITE (Italian) Cardinal Raffaele Farina, Archivist and librarian of the Holy Roman Church: "It is a piece of work, a catalogue, of manuscripts in Hebrew language belonging to the Vatican Library. So we offer the scientific world a tool to work that is then used a little bit at a time, depending on needs, and that comes to be known. This is the result of long collaboration between the Vatican Library and the National Library of Israel, and an institute created on purpose for the microfilming of manuscripts that the National Library of Israel has reproduced more or less everywhere in the world." 9. Catalogue of Hebrew manuscripts in the Vatican Library 10. Various of catalogue 11. Various of news conference STORYLINE The Vatican library on Friday, presented a newly published catalogue of all the Hebrew manuscripts kept in its library. The book contains all of the Vatican manuscripts in Hebrew script, a total of around 800 items spread across eleven different collections. It was edited by staff at the National Library of Israel who work to conserve microfilmed Hebrew manuscripts located in different parts of the world. Cardinal Raffaele Farina, archivist and librarian of the Holy Roman Church, said the work represents an important example of co-operation between the Vatican and Israel. According to the Vatican, this is the first catalogue to appear since the "Catalogus" published in the eighteenth-century by Giuseppe Simonio Assemani. The event was attended by the Israeli ambassador to the Holy See, Mordechay Lewy. It comes during a period of tension between the Vatican and Israel over Pope Benedict XVI decision to revoke the excommunication of a bishop who says no Jews were gassed during the Holocaust. The decision provoked an outcry among Jews.

The British Museum, located in the Bloomsbury area of London, in the United Kingdom, is a public institution dedicated to human history, art and culture. It s permanent collection numbers some 8 million works, and is among the largest and most comprehensive in existence having been widely sourced during the era of the British Empire, and documenting the story of human culture from its beginnings to the present.[a] It is the first national public museum in the world. The British Museum was established in 1753, largely based on the collections of the Irish physician and scientist Sir Hans Sloane. It s expansion over the following two and a half centuries was largely a result of expanding British and has resulted in the creation of several branch institutions, the first being the British Museum (Natural History) – now the Natural History Museum – in 1881. In 1973, the British Library Act 1972 detached the library department from the British Museum, but it continued to host the now separated British Library in the same Reading Room and building as the museum until 1997. The museum is a non-departmental public body sponsored by the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport, and as with all other national museums in the United Kingdom it charges no admission fee, except for loan exhibitions. Its ownership of some of its most famous objects originating in other countries is disputed and remains the subject of international controversy, most notably in the case of the Parthenon Marbles Today the museum no longer houses collections of natural history, and the books and manuscripts it once held now form part of the independent British Library. The museum nevertheless preserves its universality in its collections of art facts representing the cultures of the world, ancient and modern. The original 1753 collection has grown to over thirteen million objects at the British Museum, 70 million at the Natural History Museum and 150 million at the British Library. The Round Reading Room, which was designed by the architect Sydney Smirke, opened in 1857. For almost 150 years researchers came here to consult the museum's vast library. The Reading Room closed in 1997 when the national library (the British Library) moved to a new building at St Pancras. Today it has been transformed into the Walter and Leonore Annenberg Centre. With the bookstacks in the central courtyard of the museum empty, the demolition for Lord Foster's glass-roofed Great Court could begin. The Great Court, opened in 2000, while undoubtedly improving circulation around the museum, was criticized for having a lack of exhibition space at a time when the museum was in serious financial difficulties and many galleries were closed to the public. As part of its very large website, the museum has the largest online database of objects in the collection of any museum in the world, with 2,000,000 individual object entries, 650,000 of them illustrated, online at the start of 2012. There is also a "Highlights" database with longer entries on over 4,000 objects, and several online research catalog and online journals. In 2013 the museum's website received 19.5 millions visits, an increase of 47% from the previous year. In 2013 the museum received a record 6.7 million visitors, an increase of 20% from the previous year. Popular exhibitions including "Life and Death in Pompeii and Herculaneum" and "Ice Age Art" are credited with helping fuel the increase in visitors. Plans were announced in September 2014 to recreate the entire building along with all exhibits in the video game Minecraft in conjunction with members of the public The British Museum is a museum in London dedicated to human history and culture. Its permanent collection, numbering some 8 million works, is among the largest and most comprehensive in existence and originates from all continents, illustrating and documenting the story of human culture from its beginnings to the present. The British Museum was established in 1753, largely based on the collections of the physician and scientist Sir Hans Sloane. The museum first opened to the public on 15 January 1759 in Montagu House in Bloomsbury, on the site of the current museum building. It s expansion over the following two and a half centuries was largely a result of an expanding British colonial footprint and has resulted in the creation of several branch institutions, the first being the British Museum in South Kensington in 1881.
