The collections of Under and Tuglasʼ Literature Centre in Ajapaik
On the occasion of Friedebert Tuglasʼ 135th birthday you have the delightful opportunity to take part in a joint creative venture, otherwise known as citizen science. The Under and Tuglasʼ Literature Centreʼs photo and postcard collection, which has been entered in the museum information centre website MuIS is now also uploaded to the joint creative platform of Estonian photographic heritage, Ajapaik.ee.
As an Ajapaik user you can geotag pictures in order to improve the location based search, rephotograph historic pictures to create then-and-now picture pairs, tag persons on the pictures, add pictures to albums, categorize and comment pictures, transcribe handwritten messages on pictures or on the reverse sides of postcards, add historical imagery to Ajapaik – either by searching and importing from public collections or uploading yourself.
In the video, Vahur Puik, initiator of Ajapaik explains what the platform is and how to add information to it, as well as why it is a particularly good thing that the Literature Centreʼs collections can now be viewed there.
