Judges' Comments

A rich information portal with wide ranging content available for easy use by the researcher, student and/or casual viewer.

Huge amount of information and it has been really a big effort from the team to build this site up.

Not only is the depth of content superb, the functionality of the search engine is exemplary.

This is a facinating site that is easily searched and makes a wealth of information instantly available.
