Posted by arts-humanities.net on March 29, 2015

Pre-Raphaelitism was Britain’s most significant and influential 19th-century art movement. Founded in 1848, it centred on a group of three young artists: William Holman Hunt, Dante Gabriel Rossetti and John Everett Millais.

A Digital Library of Core e-Resources on Ireland

Posted by arts-humanities.net on March 29, 2015

This project fills a critical gap in the provision of research and learning resources in Irish studies. The content comes from an unparalleled grouping of collaboration - collectively the partners hold an unrivalled range of printed research materials that are simply not available to the academic community in such critical mass elsewhere. The project will make the resources in the partner institutions more accessible to a wider audience.

Posted by arts-humanities.net on March 29, 2015

St Deiniol’s Library in Hawarden, was founded by Gladstone in 1889 to allow the public to enjoy his vast collection of some 32,000 books. Following his death in 1898, the present building, designed by John Douglas, was constructed as a permanent home for his library. The collection, which is a valuable resource for Victorian Studies, continues to grow and now contains over 250,000 volumes of history, theology, philosophy, classics, art, literature and periodicals. Many personal letters and manuscripts written by Gladstone and his family are also housed at the library.
