Google Cultural Institute Provides Beautiful History Lessons
The goal of Google‘s Cultural Institute is to simply preserve and promote culture online. Easy to say when your brand is the first to come to mind when in need of brain power. So what’s different? The famous search engine enlisted a team of dedicated engineers to create tools that make it simple to tell the stories of our diverse heritage and make them accessible worldwide. Aligning with the wonderfully curated Art Project, World Wonders, and the Dead Sea Scrolls, Google announced the addition of 42 important historical events from the last century for your learning pleasure. Much like the aforementioned archives brought to the web by Google, in this project you’ll have the ability to zoom in on photos in the exhibition and of course utilize an intuitive search tool. Each exhibition also includes a narrative that links the archive material together. Topics available include the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II, D-Day and Nelson Mandela, amongst others. The Google Culture Institute is up and running here.
