Putting down roots: Exploring the placeness of virtual collections in public libraries

Research output: Contribution to book/anthology/report/proceedingArticle in proceedingsResearchpeer-review

DOI

In this pictorial, we investigate how a virtual collection can put down its roots in a physical space and integrate into the local community. We present PLACED, a place-centric digital service that supports participation and community-production of knowledge in library events. We illustrate how PLACED has been deployed and used at a local public library over a six-month period. We examine the community-produced virtual collection that grew out of this library event with a focus on its placeness.
