John Murray Archive App

  1. 1. An Archive in the palm of your hand: The John Murray Archive App Emma Faragher, National Library of Scotland
  2. 2. IT’S HARD TO BELIEVE WHEN YOU READ THINGS IN BOOKS OR HEAR ABOUT THEM. IT’S GOOD TO SEE THINGS FIRST HAND – ITS EVIDENCE THAT IT REALLY HAPPENED YOU WOULD GET THE FEELING OF BEING IN THE ROOM AT THAT TIME , WHETHER THEY WERE HAVING CONVERSATIONS OR DOING THEIR WRITING OR WHATEVER IF THE THINGS IN THE PAST RELATE TO YOUR LIFE AT THE MOMENT, ESPECIALLY THAT POLITICAL STUFF. THAT STRUGGLE STILL GOING ON FROM MAYBE 200 YEARS AGO, THE SAME STRUGGLE GOING ON TODAY I’M NOT VERY GOOD AT READING, SO IT WOULD NEED TO NARRATED IN SOME WAY, LIKE ANNIE MACLEOD AT LANARK
  3. 7. Why Develop? ?? What to put???
