Completion of the Rossetti Archive, an online electronic resource containing digital copies of the entire body of Dante Gabriel Rossetti's works. (24 months)

Begun in 1993 as a project of the Institute for Advanced Technology in the Humanities (IATH) at U. of Virginia, The Rossetti Archive is a free online scholarly resource for studying the entirety of the complex body of work created by D. G. Rossetti - the poet, painter, translator, and craft designer who was a key figure in the late Victorian aesthetic revival. It implements an original digital design for editing a broad range of textual and graphical humanities materials - proofs, manuscripts, drawings, paintings, designs etc. These materials exist in the Archive both as high-quality digital images and as XML-marked files for full search and analysis.
