The Cambridge Digital Library now hosts some samples of manuscript materials digitized under the JISC-supported project ‘Navigating Eighteenth Century Science and Technology: the Board of Longitude’, developed in collaboration with the AHRC project ‘The Board of Longitude 1714-1828: science, innovation and empire in the Georgian world’.

Early release of this sample set is in part designed to get user feedback for the main launch at the end of July 2013. It’s expected changes will be made in response to user experience: email comments to Huw Jones at the Cambridge University Library on [email protected]

The Cambridge Digital Library will release further important materials soon, including the Darwin-Hooker correspondence. To keep updated with additions to the Digital Library, click on the “Keep me informed” link on the top left of the page.
