The University of Georgia Special Collections Library houses some of the state’s most valuable historical archives – including the Brown Media Archives, the third largest collection of media in the world. The Brown Media Archives includes the famous Peabody Collection as well as historic films, photos, radio shows and TV broadcasts.
VanDerKloot Film & Television designed and created 13 interactive kiosks that allow museum visitors to access hundreds of different media clips from the library’s collection, as well as search through the complete Peabody Awards database. Our creative team worked with Library administration, exhibit designers and technology vendors over a 12-month period to take the interactive kisoks from idea to reality. We designed the user interface, the database software, the attract screens, as well as edited the many hundreds of clips taken from thousands of films housed in the Archives.
William Potter, University Librarian and Associate Provost wrote: “I am writing to commend and thank you for the wonderful job VanDerKloot did on the interactive kiosks in the Walter J. Brown Media Archive and Peabody Awards Collection… I would work with you again anytime on a project like this. You were easy to work with, accessible, and made the process as smooth and easy at it could be with a fantastic product to show for it at the end.”
