Exeter Digital Archives

Exeter Digital Archives of Performance Practice, directed by Peter Hulton, currently consists of 25 international archives which have been created and placed under one imprint in order to acknowledge the dynamic range of contemporary performance practice and to support departmental research and teaching. The archives house over 1000 hours of digital audio-visual documentation and are accessible both within the department's Postgraduate Computer Suite and in the main University Library. The archives have also been encoded and exist on an Intranet within the University so that material is accessible within departmental teaching and study spaces. Selected material has been edited and placed within ELE (Exeter Learning Environment) in support of individual departmental modules.
