University collections as a tool for teaching multimedia literacy
The rapidly growing use of digital media demands adequate multimedia and information technology skills. Students without sufficient media literacy are in need of further training. University collections provide a setting particularly suited to teach these much needed skills. There, students can take advantage of the many opportunities to gain skills in various techniques (digital photography, web sites and databases, for example). Such projects are real-life situations of long-lasting value. University collections profit from the fresh ideas and appealing web sites created by the students. Finally, students develop a genuine understanding and interest in the collections.
