On the 24th June 2015, the UCLA Digital Library on behalf of the David Livingstone Centre, launched an important new website relating to David Livingstone.
By 2016, the website will offer thousands of vibrant, high-resolution images of Livingstone’s manuscript pages, hundreds of detailed transcriptions, numerous large-scale color illustrations, and many user-friendly critical essays that set out Livingstone’s life and times with over 10,000 copyrighted articles predicted. With state-of-the-art spectral imaging technology, the site already reveals the words of some manuscripts that no one has read since the nineteenth century.
The images and narrative of the website is quite rightly, heavily copyrighted and protected and as such, the website should only be used for reference and reading. I’m thrilled to see such a huge resource on David Livingstone being protected and archived properly. Some excellent, very hard work has gone into this and I think this reference aid is a great celebration to compliment the forthcoming renovated museum.
