NU-Q’s Library and Museum Resources Continue Digitally

March 29, 2020

With the closure of NU-Q’s building to address the spread of the COVID-19 virus, many of the library and museum services continue to operate digitally for the benefit of community members and the wider public. 

The Media Majlis will continue to offer content through the museum’s website.

According to Pamela Erskine-Loftus, director of The Media Majlis, the Explore Content section of the website houses the museum’s longer exhibition content, including the full interviews from which the museum features snippets in exhibitions, and it has also started releasing the recordings of our 2019 public programs, as well as the animations which are featured in the current exhibition.

The second content-generating section on the website—Majlis360—features articles detailing the work of the museum and the initiatives it is involved in and offers a more behind-the-scenes look at the museum’s work.

“From the current exhibition we also plan to publish on the website some of the poetry readings by students which we filmed, and some of the posts by vloggers in the region, who created posts for the #YourNameHere section of the exhibition,” said Erskine-Loftus. 

In addition to the museum, students and faculty can also take advantage of NU-Q’s digital library resources, which include Kanopy, a video streaming platform; Lynda, a digital library offering video tutorials on subjects ranging from graphic design to business management; Mango Languages, an online language-learning program; and OverDrive, a digital distributor of e-books, audiobooks, and videos.
