About This Digital Project
Beeleigh (England). Exterior view of the entrance to rectory.
This digital project was published during the spring of 2008. The data for individual image records has been enhanced using the VRA Core 4.0 metadata standard developed by the Visual Resources Association. Digital images were captured directly from the photographic prints at a pixel resolution of 200 ppi.
In making these photographs accessible to others, we hope to gain additional information about them. If you have further information regarding the content of individual images, please contact Robert R. Coleman, Project Director, or Marina Smyth, Medieval Studies Librarian.

We are particularly grateful for the contributions and support of our colleagues and staff in the Medieval Institute in helping to establish this architectural site of the Order of Prémontré. We would like to thank, in particular, Dr. Marina B. Smyth, Medieval Studies Librarian, for her invaluable assistance.
Special thanks must be given to architectural historian Dr. Caroline Goodson, L.J. Skaggs and Mary C. Skaggs Postdoctoral Fellow at the Medieval Institute (2004-2005) for the database template design, and for guiding undergraduate student assistant Megan Hixson, who was responsible for the initial input of data and scanning of photographs. We are also most appreciative of the assistance of graduate student Emily Stetler, who indefatigably reviewed and edited all of the data.
Special thanks also to Tracy Bergstrom, Special Collections Librarian for Digital Projects, to Sara Weber, Digital Project Coordinator for Special Collections, and to Robert Fox, Systems Administrator, Theodore Hesburgh Library, University of Notre Dame, for their technical support, and without whom this site would never have been realized.
Dr. Robert Randolf Coleman
