LE:NOTRE III - Only 3 weeks to go (+ 8)

Newsletter Image

As you will all know from the countdown on the project web site, LE:NOTRE III is officially due to end on 30th September. We are, however, glad to be able to announce that we have been granted an extension of two months until 30th November 2013.

Of course you will be relieved to learn this, and to discover that you had a little more time than you thought to make the contributions to the project, that your university agreed to in the letter of intent that your legal representative signed at the start of the project.

Nevertheless, we realise that everyone is busy, at the start of the academic year more than ever, and so we have tried to simplify things as much as possible to help you make the most productive use of the time we still have available.

For this reason we have reduced what we would like you to do, to a minimum number of specific contributions to some of the web site databases. They are some of the ones which have been upgraded and made easier to use, so we hope you will be able to make your inputs with the minimum of wasted time.

Please find more information below.

5 things still to do for LE:NOTRE III


The first step is to log on to the web site now at If you have forgotten you password – the system will send it straight to your e-mail address (apart from you only the America National Security Agency know your password – but certainly not because we told them!)
Of course it would be very nice if you had a moment to check and update the information about your organisation in the Directory, but most of all we would like you to contribute data to some of the Resource databases in particular. These are:


 Design Projects

 These are any landscape design projects for parks or squares, housing schemes, pedestrian zones or hospitals, indeed any of the 40 categories of project – historic or contemporary that the system recognises. These can be ANY projects which you know and find interesting and may have used as examples for teaching, excepting, of course, those which are already in the database... ...but even for these you can add additional information, images, references to relevant journal articles etc.


Add your projects here!



 Research Projects

 These may be national or international projects relevant to any aspect of landscape of which you are aware. You or your organisation may or may not have taken part in them. They may be ongoing projects or ones which have already been completed, but they should not be ‘personal’ research in the form of, for example, PhD research – there is a separate database for PhDs – please use this.


Add research projects here!



 What used to be the ‘Glossary’ back at the start of the Project has recently metamorphosed into a Thesaurus thanks to some intensive new programming and design work. There are currently nearly 4.000 English terms in the Thesaurus, and many of these still need to be translated into the 30 or so LE:NOTRE languages and defined. Now it is also possible to add synonyms and associate related terms together.

Recruit new Members of the Network

Even though LE:NOTRE III is soon coming to an end, we are still looking to expand the number or university departments and other interested organisations in the Network and we need your help to do this. If your department is in contact with landscape architecture departments or other related departments with an interest in landscape at a foreign university, please either tell them directly about LE:NOTRE or contact us at and inform us of their possible interest.


Website User Group
Finally, we are looking for interested people to join the web site user group to help us develop it further for the LE:NOTRE Institute. Anyone interested in helping to shape the post LE:NOTRE III shape of LE:NOTRE, please contact us too.


Please remember to report your contributions using our time sheets!
