The “Discover Your National Library” exhibit I blogged about here has now been on display for over a month, and it’s getting some serious attention from people all over.
A couple of weeks ago, I noticed it hit the Silverlight.net front page (!) which is the first Irish application to do so.
Additionally the good guys from Komplett ventured down to Kildare Street for some culture and posted a great review over on their site called “The Nation’s Memory Digitised.” JJ Worall interviewed Assistant Keeper Elizabeth Kirwan and myself about the motivation behind the project and the technology involved. The article is a really nice insight into the content of the exhibition and the long-term effects of digitising our valuable archives.
If you haven’t been down to 2-3 Kildare Street yet to see the Surface tables and the exhibition itself, what are you waiting for?
