Dissenting Academies Online

11 June 11

Saturday 11 June 2011 Dr Williams’s Library, 14 Gordon Square, London, WC1H 0AR

The Dissenting Academies Project is 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. Read more about related Religion and Society funded research here.
