        Subject: Cambridge Digital Library : launch of Board of Longitude manuscripts

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 hej23 at cam.ac.uk

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
