Virtual Norfolk is a three year project to create an innovative teaching and learning web site. Virtual Norfolk will grow to include an unprecedented collection of original documentary sources, combining the latest interpretations of the county's history with recent advances in internet and multimedia technology. Eventually, it will be fully searchable, with a variety of both formal and informal navigation routes and styles.
The site is now in its final stage of development. We currently have well over 2,000 documents online, some of which are in themselves small books. In the final year we will be adding hundreds of images, including scanned documents and photographs of the county. We will also increase the sophistication of the search facility and allow authorised users to create their own modules.
The Virtual Norfolk Project is funded by the Joint Information Systems Committee, is hosted by the University of East Anglia, Norwich. It is also dependent on the support of numerous archival bodies, especially the Norfolk Record Office, the Norfolk Studies Library, and Norwich Cathedral.
