Codebreakers: Makers of Modern Genetics
King's College London Archives are one of five external partners to have contributed their collections to Codebreakers: Makers of Modern Genetics, a major digitisation resource from the Wellcome Library. Key documents from the papers of Professor Maurice Wilkins and the Department of Biophysics at King's can be accessed through the website.
The Serving Soldier provides access to thousands of digital copies of unique diaries, correspondence, scrapbooks, photographs and other archive sources scanned as part of the JISC-funded project, and provides an insight into the lives of servicemen and their families from the late nineteenth century until the Second World War.
A website based on the records of the Royal British Nurses' Association, Pioneering Nurses reveals the fascinating personal lives and careers of those who were among the first nurses to sign up to a professional register in 1890. This site was created by the Archives and volunteers from the University of the Third Age.
Archives and the University of the Third Age (U3A) have created 'Lest We Forget', a website commemorating the war dead of King's College and the institutions with which it has merged, including the Medical Schools of Guy's and St Thomas' Hospitals. The website allows users to search and browse detailed biographies of the war dead, including photographs.
The free iPhone app, Navigating Nightingale, created by Archives, AIM25 and the Florence Nightingale School of Nursing, provides an augmented-reality walking tour of central London, following in the footsteps of the pioneering nurse. The app includes innovative features including a cartoon that 'comes to life' and sophisticated map overlays.
