Sound Out! Connecting the Library & the City Through Space, Time & Space

130 views

Published on

Case Study presentation given at Academic & Special Libraries Conference, 29 March 2019.
The Sonic Histories of Cork City (SHOCC) Project is an interdisciplinary research project between members of UCC Library's Special Collections and UCC's Department of Music. The SHOCC Project explores relationships between sound, space and history and investigates what locations in Cork City might have sounded like in various moments in the city's past. The project gives UCC's MA students and members of the public opportunities to both engage creatively with the city's history and to contribute to Cork's present sounds. Such engagement aims to teach people about Cork City's fascinating past, but also to encourage people to think critically about present and future spaces.

The SHOCC Project fully underpins UCC's Connected Curriculum, enhancing the relationship between teaching and research. This is possible by considering the library as a fourth space: the library actively engaging in projects through collaborative partners of faculty, students and library brings the university into its wider constituency, contributing to society in general.
