I attended at meeting of the CILIPS Multimedia Information and Technology Group on the 27th May to hear a presentation from the National Library of Scotland to hear a presentation about plans to create a new moving image center at the Kelvin Hall. It was one of those chance things…my boss (Jennifer Louden, Librarian at Glasgow City College) told me about the meeting. The meeting was at the Mitchell Library in Glasgow a grand example of a Carnegie Library.
The National Library of Scotland is creating a new moving image center at the Kelvin Hall site in Glasgow together with Glasgow University and other organisations as part of a multi-million pound development as I listened I though the Clipper toolkit could really help with helping to enhance the access to the large digital film collection that is going to be sited there. I got talking to the Presenter – Gill Hamilton the Digital Access Manager from NLS and was able to give a short demo of the online prototype. Long story short…there was a lot of potential for collaboration so I will be getting on touch with Gill shortly.
