Wallace Letters Online is now live!

Wallace Letters Online (WLO),
the Wallace Correspondence Project's online archive of Wallace's letters, is now live on the Natural History Museum's website - see 
http://www.nhm.ac.uk/research-curation/scientific-resources/collections/library-collections/wallace-letters-online/index.html (a short url is http://www.nhm.ac.uk/wallacelettersonline).

The creation of WLO was a big team effort, involving more than 200 people besides the 'core' team of myself, George Beccaloni (director),
Judith Magee (manager) and Caroline Catchpole (archivist):- dozens of volunteers have helped to transcribe letters, about 100 kind people in libraries and archives around the world have provided information and scans of ARWs correspondence, and a team from the NHM's Interactive Media section spent weeks constructing the Web interface to the database. Although the project still has a lot of work to do with cataloguing and transcribing Wallace's correspondence to a high scholarly standard, the new Web interface will allow users to access all the work that the project has done on the letters to date (WLO will be updated monthly).
