Dissenting Academies Online  

Saturday 11 June 2011 

Dr Williams’s Library, 14 Gordon Square, London, WC1H 0AR

This event marks the public launch of Dissenting Academies Online, an innovative digital resource for the history of the dissenting academies and the first major outcome of the Dissenting Academies Project, a collaboration between the Dr Williams’ s Centre for Dissenting Studies and the Sussex Centre for Intellectual History. The resource is in two parts. Dissenting Academies Online: Database and Encyclopedia, funded by the Leverhulme Trust, contains details of academies, students, tutors, and archives, with accompanying articles; Dissenting Academies Online: Virtual Library System, funded by the AHRC/ESRC Religion & Society Programme, is a reconstruction of some of the key academy libraries and their loans. The project team will explain how the two parts have been created, and demonstrate what they can offer users.
