50 Years, 50 Books Exhibition- powered by Google Open Gallery

To coincide with the 50 Years 50 Books Exhibition, which opened on Thursday 27th March, we have put together a sister website, which features digitised representations of some of the exhibits on offer.

The landing page is at– click on the flyer to get into the exhibit website (the landing page needs some work- not least to meet the requirements of accessibility and the web standards, but this will be addressed shortly!)- click on ‘Explore the Collections’ to see the images. The exhibits site has been built using a new tool from Google, called Open Gallery, which allows rapid collections development: if you have images and a simple file of metadata, it will do the rest.

Have a look and see what you think. We intend to build such sites for exhibitions as they come along, and there may even be scope for us to build some retrospectively to allow us a view of the exhibitions the library has hosted in the past.

Thanks to Joe Marshall, Emma Smith, Susan Pettigrew, Dave Anderson, Norman Rodger, Stuart Lewis and Claire Knowles for their input on this.
