|Dr Alan Chamberlain, Senior Fellow at the Department of Computer Science|
Dr Chamberlain’s position as Visiting Researcher will see him work alongside Tom Pert, On-Line Development Manager at the Commission, to identify opportunities to extend public access to the resources of Coflein and the People’s Collection Wales.
Tom and Dr Chamberlain have previously collaborated on the development of Placebooks.org, a prototype web and smartphone-based digital publishing platform that enabled users to produce bespoke digital guidebooks using data from the People’s Collection Wales and other websites.
Dr Chamberlain said, "I'm honoured to be offered the chance to work with the Royal Commission. They are involved in some innovative and fascinating work. Digital technology and heritage play an increasingly important part in both the culture and economy of Wales. It is through organisations such as the Royal Commission that we are witnessing the development of new tools that let us look back upon our history and find new ways of being able to interact with it."
