Description

Lighthouse Heritage Research Connections
Run Run Shaw Library, City University of Hong Kong

Initiated in 2015, Run Run Shaw Library’s Lighthouse Heritage Research Connections is a research center that gives library patrons a chance to curate materials and exhibits about Hong Kong’s lighthouses and the area’s maritime history. The library serves as the central activity hub for the project, which brings together patrons and university faculty to conduct research, help with transcription and translation of archival documents, create digital renderings and artworks, participate in study trips, document photographs, produce film documentaries, and act as curators and organizers of events and exhibitions. The library also invited blind and visually impaired patrons to contribute to creating more accessible content.
