    The project focuses on five of the Yorkshire houses with significant standing ruins: Fountains, Rievaulx, and Byland principally, but also Roche and Kirkstall. The architecture of each site, explained in the context of other local churches (and European Cistercian abbeys), will open visual and textual windows onto the Cistercian way of life as experienced by the monks, the lay-brothers and their secular neighbours. Only partially completed, this project currently offers fascinating virtual tours of parts of the Kirkstall, Rievaulx and Roche Abbeys as well as a wealth of ancillary material.

    This extremely detailed resource from the University of Virginia provides a very large number of video and audio clips on Tibet and its peoples and culture which require QuickTime to access. They can be searched individually by collection or region or across the entire database. The encoding is decent, but the image size is rather small. The material goes as far back as the 1930s and clips vary in length for a few minutes to close to half an hour. It is possible to search the collection individually and by keyword, although accessing the materials can be a little bit laborious. The site is also available in Tibetan, Nipali, Chinese and Japanese.

    LUX focuses on visual arts-based moving image work, a definition which includes experimental film, video art, installation art, performance art, personal documentary, essay films and animation. The organisation’s main activities are distribution, exhibition, publishing, commissioning, research, and professional development support, and the newly designed website neatly reflects all these activities. Of particular note is the easily searchable collection of 4500 films and videos by approximately 1500 artists, which evolved from the holdings of the now-defunct London Filmmakers Co-operative, London Video Arts and The Lux Centre. These works are available for hire or sale (via the online shop), some may be viewed online in their entirety (Video section) and some are included in online themed exhibitions (listed in the ‘What’s On’ section which also includes detailed information on LUX projects and events, and a calendar listing of upcoming events across London involving artists’ moving image). The site also features a blog and downloadable podcasts and vodcasts of interviews with artists, documentation of LUX events and specially commissioned content.

    The WGBH Media Archives and Preservation Center presents bulletins from WGBH’s in-depth nightly news program, The Ten O’Clock News. The material covers the years from 1974 to 1991 and can be searched by keyword, name, location and chronologically and are between 30 and 200 seconds in length and require QuickTime. From a design perspective, the site is not particularly attractive and somewhat spartan, but the materials held are often fascinating, with emphasis on serious political issues such as desegregation in schools, AIDS and affordable housing.
