PWEE, Timothy and PERIASAMY, Makeswary (2013) Mapping dreams to pin the future to: Access ideas for the National Library Singapore. Paper presented at: IFLA WLIC 2013 - Singapore - Future Libraries: Infinite Possibilities in Session 95 - Rare Books and Manuscripts with Asia and Oceania.
Mapping dreams to pin the future to: Access ideas for the National Library SingaporeThe map collection of the National Library Singapore has a wide range of maps and charts dating from the beginning of the European Age of Discovery onwards. Aside from traditional issues of storage, conservation and preservation, there is also the question of how to enable wider access to the collection as maps are not the most robust of items. We will look at the concerns facing the collection of the National Library Singapore starting with preservation practice and going on to enabling wider access through digitisation and the possibility of using maps as a springboard for a whole new access point through geo-tagging to enable temporal and geographical co-location of materials.
