Over 1,950 oil paintings in the library's collection have been photographed and put on the website in the partnership project between the Public Catalogue Foundation and the BBC. It aims to put all of the UK's oil paintings that are in public ownership, whether on display or in storage, onto the website for all to appreciate and enjoy.
You can read the full story and learn more about the project on the BBC Wales News website.
Plus browse a photo gallery on the BBC Wales Arts website that shows a very small selection of paintings in the collection that have recently gone online, and which also gives a sense of the breadth of the collection housed at the National Library in Aberystwyth.>p
