ICT Guides is a service offered by the Arts and Humanities Data Service (AHDS) at King's College, London. It seeks to promote the use of ICTs in research and learning through cataloging good-practice digital arts and humanities projects along with the tools and methods they employed.
A number of new projects have been added to ICT Guides: http://ahds.ac.uk/ictguides/projects/allProjects.jsp
" Henri Labrouste (1801-75) is best known as the
architect of two
important public buildings in Paris, both libraries. The Bibliothèque
Sainte-Geneviève, completed in 1851, demonstrated Labrouste's
unconventional use of classical elements, much disputed at the time,
and his structural innovation of introducing an exposed iron frame. The
Bibliothèque Nationale, completed in the year of his death, is renowned
for its eclectic reading room reminiscent of a Seljuk mosque: a light,
top-lit round space with slender cast-iron columns, which support a
multitude of small domes. Both these buildings are representative of
the so-called Beaux-Arts style that flourished at the Ecole des
Beaux-Arts in Paris of which Labrouste was a student.
