With funding from the Goethe Institut, we were able to develop a practical resource for those wishing to set up digital memory projects. The Digital Memory Toolkit (available for free HERE) aims to address a lack of digital literacy in community memory projects by giving project teams the insight and tools necessary to develop these types of projects. Projects of this nature commonly focus on preserving and sharing local knowledge and empowering community members through skills training and engagement.
Alongside Brigitte Doellgast of the Goethe Institut, Niall presented a poster of the Digital Memory Toolkit at the IFLA World Library and Information Congress. Illustrations by the talented Janine Petzer, who can be found here: www.janinepetzer.com.
The poster won the best poster of the conference!
