World Cup Watch!

Keep up to date with World Cup Watch!  The Library has created an innovative mash-up that integrates automatic updates of World Cup matches with Google maps, statistical data and historical images from Library collections. World Cup Watch uses RSS feeds to provide information on scheduled matches, with users also be able to view the geographic location of the country, statistical data and selected images. Please note that Mozilla Firefox is required to view World Cup Watch.

World Cup 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 World Cup. It will also be viewable on the 4th floor, alongside television coverage of the World Cup.

To learn more about World Cup Watch, please contact Graham McCarthy, Innovative Technologies Librarian or Dan Jakubek, Map and GIS Librarian.
