Covid-19 Update

Max are pleased to confirm that our teams are still fully operational in line with the latest government guidelines. This includes our off-site team at ONS. We do understand, however, that for many businesses and institutions this is unfortunately still not the case. We continue to wish you well during this difficult period and look forward to somewhat easier times, hopefully by Spring 2021.

If you would like to schedule a call for a future date, please complete our contact form indicating a preferred day. We have decided to freeze our prices until May 1st 2021 to ensure that our customers are not penalised by the ongoing restrictions. We may decide to extend this date further still.

In the meantime, please do take a look at our podcasts page . The passion, enthusiasm and insight from our guest speakers has been inspirational, especially given the circumstances.

Tom Gillmor – Mary Evans Picture Library

09/10/2020

To be notified as new recordings are released, please subscribe using the button below.

Founded in 1964 by husband and wife team Hillary and Mary Evans and now comprising approximately 2.5 million unique and eclectic images (and still growing), The Mary Evans Picture Library is a fascinating example of a collection which started as a personal hobby but which has grown into a major international business.

Tom Gillmor, Head of Content, speaks to us today about managing a growing collection and how to continue to expand whilst still maintaining the personal ethos which helped make the collection so unique in the first place.

He tells us about the collection's international reach, how they have embraced the digital age, and the importance of strong metadata. He also shares some of his personal favorites from the collection, including an (almost) accurate view of life 'In the year 2000' as imagined by French artist Jean-Marc Cote in 1896.
