British Library delivers an innovative online annual report

From the article:
The British Library’s annual report for 2007/08 has just gone live and it's a very different kind of experience from previous years, at www.bl.uk/knowledge.

It features a best-selling novelist, a nanotechnology expert, a nit and head lice ‘assassin’ and a South African sound archivist, all talking about how the Library’s resources have supported their work in the past year.

The site uses video and animation to engage people, but then offers lots more in the way of linked resources – including audio of wolves howling and Zulu street guitar music. The idea has been to give people a chance to actually interact with our collectionsrather than simply reeling off a list of ‘what we’ve done this year’ – although that kind of information is also available.
