EUscreenXL will participate in the Gothenburg Book Fair on 25-28 September. The book fair is Scandinavia’s top literature event with circa 800 exhibitors and 100 000 visitors. For the second year running the book fair sets the stage for a feature called “The Digital Square”. Here organisations presents work aimed at digital access. This year the National Library of Sweden (KB) has joined forces and booth with the Swedish Film Institute (SFI) and Swedish Television (SVT) to showcase their various projects. KB as a partner of EUscreenXL is highlighting this project.
During the fair’s four days the public and professionals will be able to hands on look at the EUscreen portal as well to be able to discuss its aims and goals. On Friday morning a seminar will be dedicated to discuss user expectations on digital archives and EUscreenXL in particular.
If you are visiting Gothenburg pass by the booth! Take part of a competition hosted by Swedish Television, listen to panel discussions or just relax in our comfortable sofa with a programme from one of the participating archives/broadcasters in EUscreenXL (tablets will be available for loan). You can also join us for our reception on Thursday afternoon.
A comprehensive recapitulation of the events at the fair, the EUscreenXL reception, discussions with users, images and so forth will follow after the fair. Stay tuned!
