The Talking Art Library takes its inspiration from the work of French philosopher and art critic Denis Diderot (1713–84), who made extensive notes on the Paris Salon of 1765, writing a short description of all the paintings he observed. The Talking Art Library is designed to provide access for blind and vision-impaired students and visitors to the art, classics and archaeology collections through a series of descriptive podcasts.
Talking Art Library was supported a Learning and Teaching Initiatives Grant 2016
