scotts_diary_image.jpgThe British Library has launched digital versions of Captain Scott’s last three diaries at its Turning the Pages site. From the press release:

Scott’s last three diaries were kept on the sledging journey to the South Pole between November 1911 and March 1912. Extracts are shown from the first two of the diaries while the last diary is shown in its entirety. Turning the Pages uses three dimensional animation which allows the viewer to mimic the action of turning each page on a computer screen. This technology enables viewers to magnify parts of the diaries, rotate pages and read commentary about the expedition and the explorer.
