Birmingham: AGM followed by “Birmingham Photo Archive”
1st May @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
Corals Birmingham photo archive
Our speaker writes “Back in 2013 we began working on something special. In partnership with the Library of Birmingham we developed Corals, a web platform designed to deliver its collections to digital audiences. Since then we’ve been busy growing Corals to enable other organisations to join us.
In this talk we’ll share with you the journey we’ve been on to develop the platform. We’ll discuss its origins, our rationale for developing it and its core functions. Along the way we’ll focus on the need for archives, libraries and museums to use technology to engage new users. We look forward to seeing you there!”
Matthew Jelfs will tell us all about the project.
Do not be put off by the AGM also being at the time of this meeting. At Midland Ancestors, the record time for the AGM is about 7 minutes. It is hoped this will be broken this evening.
