The Rossetti archive is a collection of the works of Dante Gabriel Rossetti. This archive contains both the writings, and art of Rossetti. The archive itself has two different ways to find Rossetti’s works. Either you can browse to a specific genre of his work,(Pictures,Poems,Prose, etc..) The other option is an extensive search engine which will allow you to among other options search the title of a work, or a phrase which you might wish to find works relating to.
The Rossetti Archive is a good example of how the archive has evolved from its roots into something more accessible, and more useful than before. Werner and Voss state in”Toward a Poetics of the Archive” that “Technology ensures that the facade of the archive is changing.” This point is highlighted by this archive. Not only do you have access via the internet to many of Rossetti’s works, you have access to his complete works. Previously, when art was collected the physical space necessary to store it forced some level of loss when the physical constraints were met. However, electronic storage is not infinite it does allow for more work to be stored and accessed than ever before.
