Project Blériot

Welcome to Project Blériot ‐ The Shuttleworth Collection Online Library and Archive Catalogue

The online catalogue (Blériot) is a major addition to the Archive Research Service. It contains in excess of ten thousand records of books, letters and photographic material; this is the first phase of the project and is concerned with prime sources. This means that folders containing correspondence or photographs are only identified by their titles and a brief description of their contents. Currently these folders are being catalogued in depth but this information will not be available online in the near future. Queries relating to their contents will continue to be processed via the Archive Research Service.

Blériot is linked to the Archive Research Service to enable more detailed inquiries to be answered by the Library and Archive staff as has been the case for some years. There is a Request further information link in the Database Lookup/View Details screen which takes you to the Archive Research Service.

We hope you will find browsing Blériot to be an enjoyable and rewarding experience.
