project: Fontes Anglo-Saxonici

The material is compiled in the form of a database which analyses each Anglo-Saxon text passage by passage, sentence by sentence or, if necessary, phrase by phrase, identifying the probable source-passages used for each particular segment.

project: Classical Archaeology and Art on the Web: the Beazley Archive

The original project, a database of Athenian figure-decorated pottery 626-300BC, began in 1979. It was the second in the University of Oxford to be available 'on line' (after Cairns Science Library).
