The retrieval of the digital orphan "L’Histoire de Luxembourg"

This is a story about how a lesson on Digital Source Criticism for bachelor students of history who had to sort out how Youtube works, led to the retrieval of a series of animations on the History of Luxembourg. Thanks to the company Kiwi Media, the ‘digital orphans’ have found a new stage on Youtube.

At the Gamescom Congress in Cologne, a series of talks and panel discussions were dedicated to video games from many different perspectives. In this blogpost, I will discuss some of them illustrating that video games can and should be taken seriously.

The 'neutrality' of search engines

Nearly everyone uses search engines such as Google on a regular basis, and that is no different for researchers at our institution. Powerful as this tool can be, we should be mindful of what lies hidden behind the search bar and what information we receive through these search portals. Search engines are not impartial, nor do they search the entire web. Perhaps we need to think of other places to look for information that are less commercially oriented and supports Open Access.
