The Heritage Gazetteer of Libya, which is being developed by members of the Society for Libyan Studies, working with King's Digital Laboratory. 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 Heritage Gazetteer of Libya is designed to provide a tool for exploring the rich historic heritage of Libya, based on the work of members of the Society for Libyan Studies. The core data are drawn from the publications of the Society, including two guidebooks to Tripolitania (2009) and Cyrenaica (2013) by Philip Kenrick; further information is being added from the Archives of the Society, and from other publications by members. There is an option for others to register, and contribute further information.
This gazetteer is designed to be interoperable with other specialist gazetteers and other reliable online resources.
