About The Camelot Project


The Camelot Project is designed to make available a database of Arthurian texts, images, bibliographies, and basic information. The project, begun in 1995, is sponsored by the University of Rochester and prepared in The Rossell Hope Robbins Library, located in Rush Rhees Library. The Camelot Project has been created by Alan Lupack, Emeritus Director of the Robbins Library, and Barbara Tepa Lupack.
