Workshop looking at how digital technologies can be used by libraries for engaging people with local heritage.

LocScot is an organisation about local history in Scotland. I’m very tempted to attend this workshop, but it depends how time goes on our research project!


CILIP in Scotland are working in partnership with Robert Gordon University (RGU) to bring you this event which is part of a project called ‘Bring Your Own Heritage’. This is a project led by RGU in partnership with Moray Council to investigate how libraries can harness new technology to enhance community heritage projects.

The project is funded through the Research Councils UK (RCUK) Digital Economy network ‘IT as a Utility’ and is investigating different ways libraries can utilise technologies to capture, create and engage users with local knowledge about significant historic sites.

This event is open to anyone who may be interested and is free of charge. Places are very limited though and can be booked by e mailing Andy Grinnall at

Date: Wednesday 25th February, Sandeman Room, AK Bell Library, Perth

Time: 10am-4pm (lunch included)

Speakers: TBC soon
