Want to keep up to date with the Olympics in Vancouver? The Library has created an innovative mash-up that integrates automatic updates of medal standings with Google maps, statistical data and historical images of the Olympics from Library collections. Olympic Watch uses RSS feeds to provide instant updates of medal counts as they are reported on the official Olympic website. Users will also be able to view the geographic location of the country, as well as statistical data and selected images. Please note that Mozilla Firefox is required to view Olympic Watch.
Olympic Watch has been designed for viewing on a wide screen, so please drop by the Library to view it on the LCD panel in the Library lobby throughout the Games. It will also be viewable on the 4th floor, alongside television coverage of the Olympics. The Paralympics, taking place in March, will also be featured in Olympic Watch.
