Photography in general spaces is fine in the BL and their conference
centre. They only have concerns for special exhibitions and the
reading rooms. The GLAMwiki conference would not be about BL artefacts
so I cannot see this as a major obstacle; unless we want to be a bit
pointy and refuse a free host because we would like their policy to
improve. I would be happy for offers of help to find alternative hosts
of a similar reputation if we can get them for free.
