Transcript

  • 1. Digital Derry’s Past Around the world, communities are examining the issues of preserving cultural identity, documenting local history, promoting tourism and examining their shared heritage. Until now, many communities have relied on official records, tradition, customs, stories (both oral and written), language, myth and similar means for the preservation of cultural identity and community memory. It is possible that on-line technologies may provide a means of augmenting community memory through the provision of highly interactive and widely distributed means of gathering, indexing and archiving multimedia assets.

The Magee Photographic Collection The Magee campus of the University of Ulster is fortunate to possess a large collection of nearly 4,000 photographic negatives of pictures of Derry and the North-West of Ireland, dating from the 1860s up to about 1970. This collection was established by the Institute of Continuing Education in Magee in the early 1970s and has been an invaluable source of information for local historians. For many years, resources were not available for the maintenance of the collection or to make access readily available. In 1999 digitisation of most of the collection widened access.
