A new multimedia library, called Signpost The Multi Media Business Library, will be available on subscription from the beginning of March. The library features graphics and design from former Pile Probert Kelly partner Joe Probert, now a partner at The Multi Media Library UK, which is producing Signpost. Available worldwide, the library uses ISDN datalinks to allow access to the service. `There are loads of stills libraries, video libraries, sound libraries and news agencies, but not many which combine all these aspects,’ says Multi Media Library partner Richard Johnson. `We’ve pulled these libraries together and cross-referenced them so that there are two levels of service available: a high-quality resolution service for professionals such as designers; and a business service for people such as brand managers and marketing people who have to use the service for presentations which don’t require perfect resolution.’
