What's Your Story?: Dutch Library DOK's New Cutting-Edge Community Tech Projects
Boekesteijn, Erik
Library Journal, v135 n14 p26-29 Sep 2010
DOK, the cutting-edge library center in Delft, the Netherlands, has been finding new ways to elaborate on the social networking impulse. A good library unites people from all levels of society, and DOK's unique innovation department focuses specifically on how media can bring people together. It's doing so using technology to inspire and connect its patrons. This article discusses three department projects, mostly funded by external grants, which are under way to help the library deliver on this mission: (1) DOK Agora; (2) the Delft Heritage Browser; and (3) Tank U. The Delft Heritage Browser has been in DOK since the beginning of 2009, while Agora and Tank U will be implemented this fall.
