Welsh Ballads Online includes about 4,000 digitised ballads, mainly dating from the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, from the collections of the National Library of Wales and Cardiff University Library. Those from the National Library are available now while the Cardiff University Library ballads will be available shortly.
The ballads were digitised as a joint project between Cardiff University and The National Library of Wales, with the support of the Universities of Bangor and Swansea, and University of Wales Lampeter. The project was funded by the JISC as part of its Enriching Digital Resources programme.
More information about the project and about Welsh ballads in general will be found on the project website, Welsh Ballads at Cardiff University.
