A book on medicinal distillation from 1590 and a travel manuscript from 1670 have become a new experience allowing the users to learn about the writer, its period and the content of the book. The users browse through it in a 3D lanscape.The distillation experiment described in the first book has also become a game and school kids will be invited in 2014 to experiment with it in a series of workshops! A Chemistry expert has studied the process of distillation as it is described by the book and has also build the physical furnace outside the library so that the actual experiment can be performed as well at the same time as the virtual one and public can experience both processes and ask questions. The Mubil project is part of the activities NTNU UB has planned for the years ahead so that knowledge about the archives is spread to younger generations.
