The Magic Touch

Posted on 15 October 2018

Library staff are excited to announce the arrival of a MagicTouch kiosk.

The kiosk is an interactive unit allowing users to digitally access images, flip through publications, watch video or interact with 3D images.

The kiosk technology gives us an opportunity to showcase Library & Archive collections very differently and to try new things; taking promotional activities in a new direction, finding new methods of engagement, demonstrating our appetite for innovation and embracing new technology.

Initially the unit will be located in the Fairhurst ground floor corridor, where it will enhance our physical exhibitions with related digital content. York is the first Library in the UK to have a kiosk, and we’ll be working with the company to develop a case study and be a point of contact for interested colleagues in the sector.
