In the Norwegian project website we will may make use of English dynamic content (blog) and social media in a hybride of english/norwegian. • Everyone should chip in with good web sites and & styles references ahead of Workshop 2. In general we aim for a contemporary style based om Helvetica /Helvetica Neue + black/white/gray/one fresh color. NL has, for various reasons, already finalised its logo and style ahead of the workshop. The consequence of this is that SA can not be limited to the style chose solely by NL. • The project website needs to include a menulink at top level to the Virtual Exhibit (see sketch). • The project website needs to emphasise “why” this is important and revisit its term “Interesting Facts” to better represent its content – blog that aims to make the project transparent both in regards to the research (history) and its practice (catalogisation). • In addition to the largest social media community in Check Republic – Facebook, NL will experiment with including Twitter in order to target the professional community. Thomas will be responsible for the English only Books Discovered Once Again account and experimentation on Twitter.

  7. 7. Preparation for design workshop Virtual Exhibit?

Robust – technical solution should last for a) … 3 years? b) … 5 years? c) … 10 years? Other aims that needs to be highlighted? e.g. Reach professionals and general public through “viral” communication? •  new way of communicating suitable for sharing on social media •  new finding/new aspects/surprises the audience e.g. Emphasize Czeck /Norwegian comparisons –similarities/dissimilarities? e.g. Virtual exhibit should be media rich and make use of display rather than demand extensive reading
