Bleek and Lloyd Collection

Period

2006-

Description

The Bleek and Lloyd collection is a collection of notebooks and drawings documenting the culture, language and history of the |xam and !kun people of Southern Africa. These rare manuscripts were digitised by the UCT Centre for the Archive (led by Pippa Skotnes) and special tools were built to pre-process the metadata and images to create a portable digital library system that would work for locally-hosted collections as well as collections distributed over the Internet or on CDROM. The digitised collection is currently available online or as part of the book "Claim to the Country" by Pippa Skotnes.
