As a part of the Living Knowledge campaign, the British Library has released a cool video showing a typical day in the life of the library.
DJ Yoda made the soundtrack for the clip, sampling the Library’s own vast sound collections, performed live from the British Library’s Entrance Hall on 21 November 2014 as a part of the BBC 6 Music Celebrates Libraries program.
Living Knowledge was launched in January 2015. It outlines where the British Library wants to be in 2023 – the time of its 50th anniversary.
