Clare County Library: The Activate Project
ACTIVATE was a EU funded research project based in Ireland which began on July 2001 to run for one year. Clare County Library was one of the partners involved in the project. The others were Cork City Library, An Chomhairle Leabharlanna, Silverstorm Ltd. and the Digital Media Centre, DIT. The project aimed to build a thematic network of related internet sites resulting in the creation of templates which organisations would be able to use to construct their own site. The theme chosen for ACTIVATE was local history and Clare County Library chose Scattery Island as its subject. Staff from Clare County Library and the Clare Local Studies Project (CLASP) collected and prepared content material on Scattery Island. A virtual tour of the island accompanied the site. The Activate project was subsequently discontinued.
In late 2004, material from the Activate project was incorporated in the Ask About Ireland website.
