The Walt Whitman Archive feature on The Wired Campus Archive Watch is aptly titled: All Whitman, All Digital. The feature introduction (followed by an interview with Professor Folsom) gives its history. This is a leader project for literary migration to to internet:

In the mid-1990s, Ed Folsom, a professor of English at the University of Iowa, and another scholar, Kenneth M. Price, set out to create a digital scholarly edition of Walt Whitman’s works. The Walt Whitman Archive began life as a CD-ROM. Now housed at the University of Nebraska at Lincoln, where Mr. Price teaches, the archive contains thousands of digital facsimiles of Whitman’s poetry and letters as well as writings about Whitman, and it’s constantly growing. It averages more than 20,000 visits a day from scholars, students, and Whitmaniacs everywhere. Money to keep the archive afloat comes from the co-directors’ home institutions and a series of grants, and an endowment is in the works.

On Bill Thayers Web Site he explains that LacusCurtius: Into the Roman World which is his creation is: a major site on Roman antiquity, including a photogazetteer of Roman and Etruscan cities and monuments (with a very large site on the city of Rome of course); a site for teaching yourself to read Latin inscriptions; the complete Latin texts of [major authors, and much more].

One way people find LacusCurtius is through MIT Open Courseware (OCR) where the collection is recommended on the Ancient World: Rome course for: More ancient sources in translation; useful collections of photos of Latin inscriptions and theatres inter alia; a few old secondary works on ancient Rome.

Thor is presented on the page here that is part of the University of Pittsburg’s Folklore and Mythology Electronic Texts presided over by retired professor D. L. Ashliman. Clicking through a few pages reveals that Professor Ashliman is clearly extremely knowledgeable in his speciality. In 2005 his book on Fairy Lore was published about elves, dwarfs, gnomes, trolls, mermaids, brownies, pixies, leprechauns, and many other beings found in world folklore. Somehow it makes me enjoy the Internet more to know the delightful folks of mythology can be found amoung the zeroes and ones of the digital world.

I hope it will not be long until these merry folk find their way on to mobile phones as mobile browsers are more welcoming to the open web. May Thor soon cast thunder through your ringtone! Literature

Karl Marx
For the past decade knowledgeable volunteers have compiled this distinguished collection of Marxist literature. The website is an excellent example of how the Internet gives advocates a showcase for their point of view and students an unsullied understanding that it is a viewpoint they are studying. This is not balanced educationist synthesis. It is unabashed, healthy advocacy something students need to encounter and learn to assess. Literature
