Some of you may have noticed a new badge on the right hand side of the blog that provides a link to the Singapore Memory Project.
We received an invitation from the Singapore National Library Board (NLB), to pledge our blog to the Singapore Memory Project as part of efforts to collect memories that are already manifested in existing online channels.
The Singapore Memory Project (SMP) is a national initiative to collect, preserve and provide access to Singapore’s knowledge materials. Spearheaded by NLB, the SMP aims to build a national collection of content in diverse formats (including print, audio and video), to preserve them in digital form, and make them available for discovery and research.
Contributors to this blog pledging initiative will be listed on Singapore Memory portal’s blog pledging webpage. All blogs pledged to SMP will archived using NLB’s web harvesting software, in addition to images of each blog’s landing page.
I don’t think the link is working 100% correctly but the site has a fair bit of interesting content (if you are interested in finding out more about Singapore) and it was nice to be invited to participate.
