Lyn Keily visits NZMS Head Office and the Recollect Development Team

Posted by Jillian Whitmore on 3 October 2017 | 0 Comments

After presenting at the LIANZA Conference in Christchurch last week, we invited Lyn Keily, Special Collections Librarian for Cultural Collections Services at The University of Newcastle to visit the NZMS head office in Wellington. Lyn was given a tour of NZMS and our sister company Desktop Imaging. She was also introduced to the operations and Recollect development team who have been working closely with her on creating the Recollect site for the University of Newcastle Cultural Collections Living Histories. We loved hearing her ideas and she shared her thoughts with us, she tells us that, "We're really impressed with the flexibility of the system and we love the way you can establish relationships between people, places and things. It is exactly what we wanted to do, to enable people to participate." We were delighted to help her escape from the “primordial technological ooze”. Lyn was also able to meet with our consultants to discuss the opportunities for extending the use of Recollect using its capabilities for further access, discovery and engagement with her special collections.
We hope Lyn enjoyed her time in New Zealand; we sure enjoyed having her here and sharing her experiences over the week!
