LIBRARY SOCIAL MEDIA TEAM, 2013

After an extended involvement in creating the new web presence for the Dutch libraries online, VIRVIE instigated the creation of a national Social Media team.

This team, which consisted of local librarians, and operated completely remote and web based, handled all interactions on Twitter and Facebook, 7 days a week, from early morning to late at night.

Key factors to its succes were an extensive content strategy and proper tooling for the team members.

Augmented Reality in a serious game, December 2010

As part of the library innovation project we explored the possibilities of Augmented Reality for extending the library function. This resulted in the 'serious game' called "Expedition Deventer".

The game allows teams of students to explore the past, present and future of the city with the help of library materials. The Augmented Reality component has the unique ability to present photo, video and 3D information in a physical context.

The game won the Dutch Digital Heritage Prize.
