Bolles collection on the history of London the collection of Edwin C. Bolles on the history of London from its founding to the 19th century
"Edwin C. Bolles, professor of English at Tufts College (now Tufts University) in the late 19th century, assembled a substantial focused collection of materials on Victorian London. These materials include not only conventional print sources but many pieces that are unique or quite rare: folio descriptions of the city from limited print runs, contemporary 19th century maps in various shapes and formats, illustrations and prints from the 17th through the 19th century, that capture a precious (and now largely forgotten) record of how the British represented this city. The digital archive represents a comprehensive and integrated collection of sources and resources on the history and topography of London. Texts, images, and maps in the Bolles collection are all interconnected. Together they form a body of material, heterogeneous in form, but homogeneous in theme, that transcends the limits of print publication and exploits the flexibility of the electronic medium. The digitized maps are linked to each other, to relevant source texts, and to illustrations of the locations as they appeared a the time or at present. Similarly, the texts are linked to the maps and the images, and so on"--"More about this collection" screen

Visitors to Cape Reinga : site use and management implications /
Cape Reinga is an important cultural and spiritual site in New Zealand, especially for Maori. It is administered by the Department of Conservation, in partnership with Ngati Kuri. International visitors comprise c. 59% of the peak summer visitors. The majority of visitors are either less than 39 years or more than 50 years old, and approximately half visit on a tour. Domestic visitors are mainly under 49 years old and are more likely to visit by car. Site usage differs little between New Zealanders and international visitors; and the majority visit Cape Reinga for sightseeing. At the site, approximately 81% of visitors stay near the car park and lighthouse. When the number of visitors at the Cape Reinga site exceeds 150, up to 20% feel that parts of the site are crowded. Future development and management must enable Cape Reinga to absorb the projected growth in visitor numbers and reduce perceived crowding while retaining the cultural and landscape values of the site
