Earlier this year Stewart Lamb Cromar (Information Services manager) published guidance on how to curate your own University of Edinburgh digital exhibition within the popular Animal Crossing video game. Taking full advantage of the 40,000 images published by the Centre for Research Collections (CRC) under a Creative Commons Attribution licence (CC BY).

Following on from that original blog post, Stewart has created a brand-new digital exhibition celebrating the Carlyle Circle's 30th anniversary.

Recent software updates now allow you to visit this unofficial exhibition any time that suits.
