ascollection iconWales 1801-1919: The final piece in the UK/Ireland NSTC geographical jigsaw
The project attempts to fill two major gaps in the bibliography of Wales. Firstly, the dates 1801 and 1919 have been chosen to fill a geographical and linguistic gap in the Nineteenth-century short title catalogue (NSTC) which is believed to have excluded much Welsh language material. Secondly, it will fill a gap between Libri Walliae: a catalogue of Welsh books and books printed in Wales 1546-1820, and Bibliotheca Celtica and its successor Llyfryddiaeth Cymru/Bibliography of Wales which cover the period from 1909 to date.
