    Doodles are the fun, surprising, and sometimes spontaneous changes that are made to the Google logo to celebrate holidays, anniversaries, and the lives of famous artists, pioneers, and scientists. The Archive pages, arranged chronologically, preserve the Doodles of past years celebrating, for example, the 800th anniversary of the Magna Carta, St Valentine’s Day, the Mexican 2015 elections and Saul Bass’ 93rd birthday. Clicking on the Doodle, some of which are animated and/or interactive, gives interesting information on the illustrator, the creative process and details of the event/celebration behind the logo.

    The Theatre Archive Project is an ongoing project to reinvestigate British theatre history from 1945 to 1968, from the perspectives of both the theatregoer and the practitioner. The project is a collaboration between the British Library and the De Montfort University and is funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC). The project comprises a number of strands that support study of this period of British theatre history, as well as an opportunity to analyse and debate findings through a blog. The Oral History strand began in November 2003, and aims to interview as many people as possible who visited or worked in the theatre between 1945 and 1968. Transcripts are available for most recordings. Over 250 interviews have been added to the site, and interviewees include Frith Banbury, Michael Frayn, Trevor Griffiths, Glenda Jackson, Ann Jellicoe, Ian McDiarmid, Peter Nichols, Corin Redgrave, Arnold Wesker, Timothy West.

    A portal which helps people to ‘find great podcasts’. Curated by Max Temkin and Veronica Corzo-Duchardt, the site presents a selection of mainly American podcasts, arranged under a number of topics, including Tech, Science & Education, Politics & Econ and Storytelling. An Interview page features transcripts of question and answer sessions with podcasters, writers, designers and other culturally-aware, creative people, who talk about their favourite podcasts, and why (and how) they like listening to them. The site works well because its focus is fairly narrow: the emphasis is on curation, and presenting a carefully selected range of interesting podcasts, rather than a comprehensive but overwhelming list of resources.

    This online encylopedia from Italy consists of thousands of short videos - generally between three and five minutes long, many of them based on entries from the Treccani Encyclopaedia and approved by the Istituto dell’Enciclopedia Italiana. Topics covered include Art and Design; Cinema; Culture; Economics and Politics; Music and Dance; Tourism; Science and Sport. This could be a good resource for Italian language students but the breathless editing and distractingly loud music which accompanies the voiceovers does not necessarily present the content in its best light.
