SCARLET (Special Collections using Augmented Reality to Enhance Learning and Teaching) (JISC funded project)

  • SCARLET addresses one of the principal obstacles to the use of Special Collections in teaching and learning – the fact that students must consult rare books, manuscripts and archives within the controlled conditions of library study rooms. The material is isolated from the secondary, supporting materials and the growing mass of related digital assets. This is an alien experience for students familiar with an information-rich, connected wireless world, and is a barrier to their use of Special Collections. The SCARLET project will provide a model that other Special Collections libraries can follow, making these resources accessible for research, teaching and learning.
