Museum Galleries Scotland Showcase our John Murray Archive App Posted by: Kenny S on 22/09/2010

National Library of Scotland iPod Touch and iPhone app

Last week it was great to see the recent mobile work we completed for The National Library of Scotland's John Murray Archive (JMA) being showcased online at Museum Galleries Scotland.

The John Murray Archive app for iPhone/iPod was designed and built to provide a new multimedia introduction to this extensive literary collection that comprises over 150,000 papers, manuscripts, letters and other documents representing many of the world's most celebrated writers, thinkers, politicians, explorers, economists and scientist.

As the Scottish cultural sector begins to embrace the benefits that mobile technologies can bring, it is encouraging to find best practices being written up and shared amongt this rich and vibrant community. And even more heartening was the  spotlight this particular study placed on the importance of background research in a project using new technology, which clearly should always be the starting point of any mobile application development as we explore further in our 5 steps to mobile app development.
