The New Livingstone Online –bringing David Livingstone’s manuscripts to the global public
Wednesday, June 24, 2015
David Livingstone — famous explorer, abolitionist, and missionary — left one of the most important written legacies of any Victorian traveller to Africa. Today, these manuscripts reside, hidden from public view, in archives around the world. In this talk, members of the Livingstone Online team will discuss the most recent phase of the ten-year digital project to bring Livingstone’s original words to a global audience. In particular, the team will cite both accomplishments and challenges in redeveloping the site to engage modern political and aesthetic sensibilities while adhering to international standards of digital archival preservation.
