Collaborating Institutions

This page cites the libraries, museums, archives, and universities that support the work of Livingstone Online.


The success and continuing development of Livingstone Online relies on our collaboration with an international range of libraries, museums, archives, and universities. These institutions have not only made their Livingstone manuscripts available to us (and so to our users), but in many instances have provided pro bono services, technical advice, and other forms of support. We are grateful for this assistance. Our work would not be possible without it.
