National Collection of Children’s Books website
Client: Trinity College Dublin
Project brief: Vermillion were asked to work on an identity and website for The National Collection of Children's Books (NCCB), an online catalogue of children's books.
'Over 30,000 unique users in just nine months App Store'
The NCCB was a two-year interdisciplinary and inter-institutional project that examined children's books collections in ﬁve libraries: Trinity College Library; Church of Ireland College of Education Library; the National Library of Ireland; Dublin City Library and Archive, Pearse Street; and Cregan Library, St Patrick's College, Drumcondra (DCU).
Vermillion completed this project (nccb.tcd.ie) in December 2015. Initially, the project aimed to create a catalogue containing 40,000 books and a database with 200 entries. It surpassed its goals signiﬁcantly and ﬁnished with a user-friendly catalogue of over 250,000 books and a database containing over 500 entries. The NCCB's principal investigators warmly praised the website for its stability, functionality and usability (see the TCD website for more).
