Who knows what else you may find while there. For example, at Innerpeffray Library my friend and I found ourselves leafing through a gardening book from the 1580's, and viewing hand written poems by Robert Burns, which was a privilege and delight to do.

For the online exhibition I undertook the task to create an online exhibition by ‘taking a paper based brochure or poster for a collection or service and recreate it in an online exhibition using a blog.’ The blog I created ‘Those That Came Before Us’ is available here
Task 8 asked for the creation of an infogra…
