The New Livingstone Online
The first edition of the new version of Livingstone Online (University of Maryland Libraries, 2016; http://livingstoneonline.org/) has now been published. Livingstone Online is a digital museum and library that enables users to encounter the written and visual legacy of famous Victorian explorer David Livingstone (1813-1873). The site challenges reigning iconic representations of Livingstone by restoring one of the British Empire's most important figures to the many global contexts in which he worked, traveled, and is remembered.
Highlights of the new site include:
The new site is the most recent outcome of a 12+ year initiative that brings together an international, interdisciplinary team of specialists with forty contributing archives and repositories, including the National Library of Scotland, the David Livingstone Centre, the Royal Geographical Society, and SOAS, University of London.
LEAP (the Livingstone Online Enrichment and Access Project), the most recent development phase, has been made possible thanks to generous funding from the National Endowment for the Humanities and University of Nebraska-Lincoln.
