May brings us the first long, warm days with picnics and late barbecues, and for the youngest, entire days of playing outside. This fragment from the Image Capsule 2115 shows children in Kortrijk giving it their best on playground the Warande.
Step by step, we are opening up the Flemish archive to the public. Our first public collection, ‘News from the Great War’, is the biggest online database of press material from the First World War. Browse through war newspapers, trench papers and even censored press.
An image says more than a thousand words. Through our platform ‘the Archive for Education’ teachers can find audiovisual classroom material in one place. It has never been so fun and easy to enrich your lessons with image and sound. Exclusively accessible to teachers and trainee teachers.
In our techblog we take a look behind the scenes and give you insights on technical studies, measurements and experiences that come up when running a large-scale digital archive.
