MediaHub is the trusted multimedia website bringing together content from many different sources including several Jisc initiatives. In addition, image, video and audio sources are searched from external websites and presented alongside hosted collections. Finding material is no longer the challenge but having it presented in a practical and relevant way.

Over the course of several years, a bank of supporting material has been amassed which will be shown at Digifest, demonstrating the many and varied ways such resources are being put to use. These have been provided by members of the education community to share with others using the site – reviews, case studies and even film trails. A new feature also enables user-uploaded images.

Other initiatives to enliven the material include blogposts to focus on the hidden depths of the site and tweets to highlight more topical themes. This drop-in session allows those attending the festival to see the possibilities of using this rich and rewarding material in their learning, teaching or research from illustrating assignments to projecting video within an academic environment.

The other important connection made with MediaHub is to other related Jisc services – BUFVC and Jisc Digital Media are linked on the site for additional support and guidance on using multimedia – providing a comprehensive experience.

Come along and see how it’s done, by using the right media – beyond Google.

  • AP ArchiveA unrivalled collection of news footage, including Associated Press, ABC News, and Sky News (launched 1989). AP's coverage includes the Arab-Israeli conflict, the 2003 War in Iraq, the 9/11 terrorist attacks, conflict in the Balkans, US Presidents Bush, Reagan, and Clinton, Nelson Mandela, and many more.
  • Images – all main figures of British art in the twentieth century are represented, e.g. John Singer Sargent and William Orpen, and progressive artists such as Paul Nash, Stanley Spencer and Graham Sutherland. The proclamations are drawn from a collection of around 33000 paper items from 1st and 2nd world wars, conveying official instructions and statements and home and abroad.
  • Amber Documentaries and feature films from a remarkable film-making collective established in the north-east of England in 1968. Of interest to students, teachers and researchers in the fields of media studies and of UK political and social history in the late 20th and early 21st centuries.The Amber Film Collective was established in 1968 when a group studying at the Regent Street Polytechnic met and subsequently moved to the north-east of England with the declared aim of documenting working-class communities in the region. It was therefore one of the first independent, regional co-operatives deliberately set up to operate outside the mainstream metro-centric film industry and is also one of the few remaining survivors of the workshop movement still producing films today.Amber aims to work collaboratively with the local communities to produce a film and photographic record that gives them a genuine voice, ideally to produce some permutation of film, photographic exhibition and book.Over the past 36 years Amber has produced a body of work of remarkable integrity that not only draws on the social realism that is so much part of the British documentary tradition but also uses an imaginative aesthetic approach.Royal MailOne of the finest British collections of documentary, public information, animation and industrial film, covering subjects ranging across transport and communications in Britain and abroad, the Home Front during the Second World War, British industries from fishing to mining, the nation's health - and developments in the Post Office service itself. A selection of 16 hours.Founded in 1933 as successor to the Empire Marketing Board Film Unit and headed by John Grierson in the role of Film Officer, the GPO Film Unit produced one of the finest British collections of documentary, public information, animation and industrial film ever to come from a single UK source, spanning much of the 20th Century.The GPO Film Unit provided a temporary home to many of the best-known names in the British documentary movement, including Alberto Cavalcanti, Humphrey Jennings, Basil Wright, Harry Watt, Edgar Anstey, Arthur Elton and John Taylor, alongside innovators and experimentalists such as Len Lye and Norman McLaren. The Unit remained in existence throughout the 1930s and survived into the early years of the Second World War, when it became the Crown Film Unit.The collection includes classics such as Nightmail (1936), which perhaps best exemplifies how British industry supported leading artists in the pre-television age, drawing as it does on the combined talents of Basil Wright and Harry Watt, alongside WH Auden, Benjamin Britten, John Grierson and Stuart Legg.Films of scotlandDocumentary films on all aspects of Scotland. A selection of 50 hours.One of the most coherent local and national film collections in the UK, Films of Scotland charts the changing face of Scotland from the 1930s to 1982.All the films were made under the auspices of the Films of Scotland Committee, which had a brief to sponsor films to promote Scotland's social, cultural and industrial attributes, both nationally and internationally.In collaboration with Scottish Screen Archive, National Library of Scotland, most of the 155 Films of Scotland titles ever produced are available, including all seven films made for the Empire Exhibition in 1938, as well as a selection of the films made between 1955 and 1982; topics covered range across industry, agriculture, fishing, the work of Scottish artists and writers, architecture, tourism, urban redevelopment and Scottish music and dancing.
  • IET.tv It features over 3,000 presentations filmed between 2002-2012 from a range of IET events, lectures, seminars, conferences, as well as other organisations' events and expert interviews.

Interviewees include Professor Patricia Clarke, Sir John Cornforth, Dr Dorothy Hodgkin, Sir James Lovelock, Professor Alfred Neuberger, Dr. Albert Szent-Gyorgy and Lord Alexander Todd.IWFA wide selection of material from one of the leading science film institutes in the world, based in Germany. A series of highlight extracts from the collection's complete films is available, each one complete in itself and showing a single process or phenomenon, together with a growing list of complete films from the collection.Based in Germany, the IWF is one of the leading science film institutes in the world. It has been working since the late 1940s on behalf of academic researchers to create audio-visual recordings of physical phenomena in nature and technology, the biological sciences, and ethnographic customs and processes in culture and society. Please note that the soundtrack of a small number of films in the collection is in German.The IWF collection is of interest to students of biomedical science and life sciences, zoology, botany, anthropology, chemistry, environmental science, genetics, oceanography, chemistry, physics, physical sciences, mathematics, ethnography and geology.
  • Wellcome moving images and sound500+ titles dating from 1912 onwards, covering all aspects of medicine, healthcare provision and practice in the UK from the Moving Image and Sound Collection in the Wellcome Library.This resource provides access to films and videos which were previously only available to view onsite at the Wellcome Library's premises. Researchers, educators, students and browsers are able to witness the evolution of medicine and health over the past 100 years and engage with the use of film as a communication tool in the medical sciences.The core collection consists of about 60 © Wellcome Trust titles that were made by the corporate arm of the organisation, in the guise of the Wellcome Foundation. The earliest footage is of archaeological digs in the Sudan, at Jebel Moya, featuring the founder, Sir Henry Wellcome himself (A day at Gebel Moya, season 1912-13), as well as more jaunty corporate fare about the business of running a pharmaceutical company (Looking Around, The Story of the Wellcome Foundation).Many of the films were originally made for professional audiences such as doctors, surgeons, nurses and students of medicine, so be prepared for some "hands-on" footage of clinical procedures and actual operations. Some of the material relating to genito-urinary procedures are available to medical students only.St GeorgesThese films reflect the production and teaching needs of one of the leading medical schools in the UK. A selection of nine hours.The collection of 19 films from St George's Hospital Medical School Academic Services reflects the teaching needs of one of the leading medical schools in the UK.The collection covers subjects in the clinical-medical and biomedical fields, as well as aspects of current medical practice, including examination techniques, case studies on specific illnesses and operations, guides on diagnosis, and training on doctor-patient interaction.The material is aimed at medical and biomedical undergraduate and postgraduate students.Sheffield UniversityMedicine, statistics, law, chemistry, archaeology, and the performing arts. A selection of 47 hours.Sheffield University Learning Media Unit is one of the largest university production units in the UK. The collection covers a wide range of subjects and programmes, and will be useful right across the academic subject range, including medicine, bio-medical science, chemistry, life sciences, biology, sociology, environmental and earth sciences, archaeology, music, law, geology, civil engineering, English language and the performing arts.
  • Over 50 hours of copyright-free classical music and associated scores, covering much of the core repertoire plus rarer pieces from the 17th to the 20th centuries. Adaptation and manipulation permitted.The Culverhouse Classical Music Collection comprises over 50 hours of copyright-free classical music, covering much of the core repertoire plus rarer pieces from the 17th to the 20th centuries. It is licensed from Brian Culverhouse, who, after 20 years at EMI, has been an independent record producer for 30 years, working with many famous performers.For ease of use, the music is available in small pieces, such as movements, and some associated scores are also available.Users are permitted to extract sections for delivery in VLEs or on disc, relieving pressure on hard-pressed libraries, allowing staff and students to download and burn customised CDs while librarians will be able to replace any that go missing.As a repository of musical examples, the Culverhouse Classical Music Collection is a boon to music teaching at all levels. However the really innovative aspect of the licence agreement is that it allows manipulation of the files.Using their preferred software, users are permitted to repurpose the wav files, including stretching or compressing
  • Images covering a wide range of pictorial content drawn from the rich, diverse and internationally significant collections of The Fitzwilliam Museum in Cambridge, including major artists such as Canaletto, J.M.W. Turner, George Stubbs and John Constable. Every image is tagged by geographical location and a date or period.Many of the images are linked to contemporary social and political events. For example, George Stubbs' painting of the horse 'Gimcrack with John Pratt up on Newmarket Heath' of c.1765 marks an important period in the history of horse-racing in Britain, when the coloured silks of patrons had been introduced and the sport had begun to attract a wide public. Other images depict engineering structures or science and technology subjects: a number of ceramics, for example, have images of industrial buildings and events, such as the Great Exhibition of 1851 or the Dublin Industrial Exhibition of 1853. A painting such as Ford Madox Brown's 'The Last of England', depicting 19th-century emigrants leaving the UK with the cliffs of Dover in the background, offers comparative material on the theme of emigration within a social, political and cultural context.

  • The Johnston Collection of photographs, from the North Highland College.The Johnston Collection is a historic photographic collection of national and European significance dating from as early as 1840. The Johnston family were amongst the earliest pioneers of photography, and their work spans almost a hundred and forty year period between around 1840 and 1979. Working in and around the Caithness and Sutherland areas, their subject matter ranged from general Highland life, through the fishing industry, working women, politics, architecture, and general portraiture, all of it of considerable historic value. The last remaining member of the Johnston dynasty still resides in Wick, and it is he who donated the collection to its current guardians.
