project: The electronic Old Bailey Sessions proceedings, c.1670-1778

The aim was to make available in a fully searchable form, the full text of the Proceedings of the Old Bailey, 1674 to 1834, in combination with original page images. The Proceedings and the website contain 25 million words of transcripts of approximately 100,000 felony trials held at the Old Bailey between 1674 and 1834. This text has been transcribed and marked up to allow both free text searching, and structured analysis using bespoke statistical tools. [read more]

project: British Cartoon Archive Digitisation (BCAD) project

The British Cartoon Archive Digitisation Project (BCAD) involved a redesign of the British Cartoon Archive (BCA) website, to increase its functionality and usefulness to researchers, teachers, and students, and the addition of new digital images from the BCA collection. The new digital images came largely from the huge Carl Giles collection, which arrived at the BCA in 2005 and is now totally accessible through the BCA online catalogue. [read more]

project: Concordia

The overall aim of the project was to make it easier for readers to move between publications on the Web, instead of walking from one library shelf to another. Bringing information together in this way helps researchers to recognise a new range of relationships and interactions. [read more]

project: A Digital Library of Core e-Resources on Ireland

This project fills a critical gap in the provision of research and learning resources in Irish studies. The content comes from an unparalleled grouping of collaboration - collectively the partners hold an unrivalled range of printed research materials that are simply not available to the academic community in such critical mass elsewhere. The project will make the resources in the partner institutions more accessible to a wider audience. [read more]

project: Cabinet Papers, 1915-1977

The Cabinet Papers Project aimed to provide an online resource for learning and research that would make The National Archives’ holdings of the Cabinet Papers available to the public, and in particular to Higher Education and A-level students. The National Archives is now able to provide an entire collection of searchable digitised images of the Cabinet Papers to users of the site as well as providing relevant information and study guidance for both teachers and students of British 20th century history.

project: Montréal l'avenir du passé (MAP)

Montréal l'avenir du passé (MAP) was established in 2000 to create an historical GIS research infrastructure for 19th and 20th century Montréal. We have digitized six highly detailed historical maps representing all buildings in the city for 1825, 1846, 1880, 1912, 1949 and 2000. The first three and last have been geo-referenced and we have successfully "peopled" them by linking at the street-scape (1846) or lot level (1880 & 2000) census returns, tax records, city directories and a wide variety of non-routinely generated sources.

project: British printed images to 1700, a digital library

‘BRITISH PRINTED IMAGES TO 1700’ (bpi1700) is a project funded by the AHRC under their Resource Enhancement scheme. It represents a collaboration between Birkbeck, University of London, and the Centre for Computing in the Humanities (King’s College London). The other partners are the British Museum and the Victoria and Albert Museum. It currently makes over 5,000 printed images from early modern Britain available online in fully searchable form.

project: Prosopography of the Byzantine World (PBW )

Prosopography of the Byzantine World (PBW) aims to record all surviving information about every individual mentioned in Byzantine textual sources, together with as many as possible of the individuals recorded in seal sources, in the period 1025-1261. The current online database is the first major result of PBW, a project covering the period AD 1025-1180, and represents a continuation of prosopographical work originally inspired by A.H.M. Jones in 1950, and sponsored since then by the British Academy. [read more]

project: Person Data Repository of the 19th Century

The project “Construction of a repository for biographical data on historical persons of the 19th century” – short form: Person Data Repository – enhances the existing approaches to data integration and electronically supported research in biographies. It investigates connecting and presenting heterogeneous information on persons of the “long nineteenth century” (1789–1914). The project's aim is to provide a de-central software system for research institutions, universities, archives, and libraries that allows combined access on biographic information from different data pools.

project: Online Chopin Variorum Edition (OCVE)

OCVE began as an eighteen-month pilot study, from May 2003 to October 2004. Its aim was to explore the potential of technology to trascend the limitations of a traditional printed variorum edition. The research exploited emerging technical capacities for text/image comparison as well as recent musicological advances in cognate projects such as Chopin's First Editions Online and the Annotated catalogue of Chopin's First Editions (Cambridge University Press, 2007).
