Judges' Comments

an excellent site for a range of audiences, including researchers. ...considerably expanded and geographical and time coverage is much more comprehensive than a year ago. Good content depth (in a variety of formats, e.g. multimedia) and opportunities for drilling down, as well as relevant interactive features to enrich user experience.... a great balance of content and visuals and alternative exploratory routes for both the serendipitous and more serious researcher.

One of the most elegantly produced websites I have seen ...

beautifully done, easy to use, visually engaging, and intuitive. I didn't even need to read any directions –- the user interface was easy to grasp and use ...
