JIM DEVINE is Head of Education and Digital Media Resources at the Hunterian Museum and Art Gallery, and Honorary Lecturer in Computing Science in the University of Glasgow. In1995, in association with colleagues from the Department of Computing Science, he initiated a collaborative program between the Hunterian and the University's Department of Computing Science which has led to a wide variety of innovative multimedia projects focused around the Hunterian collections. This has included an award winning web site incorporating audio, video and QuickTime Virtual Reality. He has been involved in the supervision of numerous multimedia academic project teams with colleagues in the Computing Science Department as part of an ongoing collaborative effort in developing new applications for leading edge technologies. This has led to a skills-sharing partnership with the Smithsonian Institution, Office for Scientific Imaging and Photography, which has proven highly beneficial to both partners. He has co-authored the Glasgow Science Centres' IT Strategy Study, and is a member of the Scottish Museums Council's IT Strategy Group which recently prepared a report for the Scottish Executive. He has led academic field expeditions to Knossos in Crete to create QTVR tours of the Minoan palace complex on behalf of the Greek Ministry of Culture and the British School of Archaeology in Athens. He has recently overseen the setting up of a state of the art Digital Imaging Centre at the Hunterian, providing the highest quality of digital image capture and manipulation.
