Spotlight: First World War Poetry Digital Archive

by

This week, the First World War Poetry Digital Poetry Archive  is under the spotlight.

Highly commended by the Times Higher Educational Awards for ‘Outstanding ICT Initiative’, the First World War Poetry Digital Archive was launched in November 2008. The archive is an “online repository of over 4000 items of text, images, audio, and video for teaching, learning, and research”. Freely available, the archive is searchable and browseable and includes collection highlights. Members of the public were invited to contribute material for the archive.

The First World War Poetry Digital Archive  is funded by the JISC Digitisation Project and is based at the University of Oxford.
