The purpose of the project is to generate a database of funny and quirky facts as well as a number of widgets that enable the libraries’ websites to show facts.

Fun Facts wants to offer users a tiny ‘knowledge snack’ that can encourage further study of music, literature, films or entertaining online inspiration. Fun Facts is meant to be entrenched in websites of libraries, Info Galleries or other digital platforms.
Biblioteksvagten (online library service) delivers facts
Biblioteksvagten is a partner in the project as they have specific competences within the facts area. Biblioteksvagten has provided the project with 500 facts. Some of the other suppliers are the Mindspotters in the Main Library and the library users. The fun facts will be launched in May 2012.
