The aim of the HELIX project is to build on the prototyping work already carried out in the EC-funded project ELISE I, helping to create substantial and useful operational image banks, delivering images to universities throughout the UK.The project is to achieve this within a technical framework that uses recognized standards which will be hospitable to the incorporation of further image banks, both nationally and internationally.The "sub-collection" of 7,000 images referred to above will be part of the module presenting a cohesive set of materials describing the Social and Political History of Britain from 1859 to the present day (SPHB).
