Welcome to these resources for the study and recording of the heritage of Libya, which are being developed by members of the Society for Libyan Studies, working with King's Digital Laboratory.

The Gazetteer: Our aim is to record, and to provide with unique identifiers, locations and monuments within modern Libya which are of significance to the history of the area up to 1950; we are offering as many variant names as possible, together with geodata from various sources. The resultant identifiers (URI) can be read by a computer, and used by anyone recording heritage materials online. We hope that this resource will be useful for everyone interested in studying, or recording, the history of the country.

The Archives: Over the last 50 years the Society has been fortunate enough to receive several collections of papers from scholars who have worked in Libya; these are held at the University of Leicester by the School of Archaeology and Ancient History. They have been preserved and catalogued and may be consulted by members of the Society and other serious scholars. The Archive catalogue is presented here in a browsable and searchable form; our intention is to facilitate the use and publication of these resources.
