BBC’s Reminiscence Archive Goes Open Source (BBC)

Summary

The BBC’s online Reminiscence Archive (RemArc) has been designed, by researchers from Dundee and St Andrews universities, to aid reminiscence in people with dementia and to help stimulate conversations between people with dementia and their carers. It assembles photographs, music, spoken word recordings and film from 1940 to 1980.

The RemArc software has been made available freely under an open source license, allowing people, groups, museums etc. to build their own locally-tailored reminiscence archives.
