Safeguarding yesterday for tomorrow... today.

Alhambra Digitisation


We digitised Plans, Elevations, Sections, and Details of the Alhambra: from drawings taken on the spot by the late M. Jules Goury and in 1834 and 1837 by Owen Jones... for the Birmingham Institute of Art and Design library. The original is kept in a stack behind the scenes and students' access of its drawings was limited. Digitisation and subsequent hosting of the collection on UCEEL seemed the ideal solution.
