Curating Information into Apps

  1. Thursday, September 27th, 20122:00pm - 3:30pm

  WFU faculty, staff, and students are invited to create and distribute new digital content with new authoring tools. BiblioBoard is a free app that gives access to historical documents that explore places, events, people and themes from across the centuries. Each anthology is a curated multimedia experience about a topic that generally includes 75+ pieces of unique historical content such as books, images, articles and historical documents, accompanied by expert commentary. BiblioBoard features plenty of free books and images in every anthology, and high resolution images from several sample anthologies, including Pirates and Piracy, Republican Campaigns, The Battle of Gettysburg: Changing the Tide, Titanic: A Historical Collection, Fairy Tales from Around the World, Baseball: America’s Game, The Lives of Irish Saints, Rudyard Kipling and many more. In addition, BiblioBoard provides access to an on-going series of British Library Anthologies created with items drawn from the Library’s vast digital repository of 19th Century content. WFU content creators are now invited to become part of this global network of curators and produce new strands of engaging, educational and entertaining history using BiblioBoard's Nuvique authoring tools.
