New Edition of Livingstone Online

A second edition of Livingstone Online (http://livingstoneonline.org/) has been released as the Livingstone Online Enrichment and Access Project comes to an end after four years. Livingstone Online is a digital museum and library, hosted by the University of Maryland Libraries, which makes available David Livingstone’s visual and written legacy. It contains images of manuscripts held in libraries and archives around the world, transcriptions, critical essays and background information, and describes how spectral imaging technology was used to recover previously hidden text.

The new edition includes new manuscript images, revised metadata and the integration of critical editions of Livingstone’s final manuscripts. The site guide (http://livingstoneonline.org/about-this-site/livingstone-online-site-guide) is a helpful entry point to the resource.
