Robert Louis Stevenson - new site

The life and work of RLS has been gathered together for the first time in a huge online archive which was launched yesterday to mark the 159th anniversary of his birth. As an example, if you look up Treasure Island you get a full synopsis and a virtual book with page turner facilities. It's not just books though, there are photographs, letters and other personal material, some of it never seen before in public. A Schools section contains information and resources for school students, including activity packs and a reading list. The site was put together by Edinburgh Napier University with a grant from the Carnegie Trust for the Universities of Scotland.
