    Description

    The University of Michigan, NewsBank/Readex Co., and the American Antiquarian Society are cooperating in a Text Creation Partnership to create 6,000 accurately keyed and fully searchable SGML/XML text editions from among the 40,000 titles available in the Evans Early American Imprints Collection. Evans is the most significant collection of titles relating to the history of seventeenth and eighteenth century America, and the Text Creation Partnership seeks to create enduring digital text editions of the most frequently studied works.

    The Evans collection consists of the works represented in the American Bibliography by Charles Evans which trace the history of the American colonies that would eventually become the United States. The corpus covers topics as diverse as temperance, witchcraft, slavery, diplomacy and music. The 40,000 works of the Evans corpus is a mainstay for understanding the development of Western culture in general and the Anglo-American world in particular.

    Women's Voices: Early Years at the University of Michigan

    Description

    Womens' Voices is a collection of vividly expressed reminiscences of the earliest women students admitted to the University of Michigan. The quotations were selected from responses to a survey sent in 1924 to all alumnae who had attended the University of Michigan. The more than 3,000 women who responded were among the first in the nation to experience higher education in a coeducational environment, and reported experiences that occurred over 54 years on the campus of the University of Michigan. The responses to the survey were highly individualistic. The alumnae had come to the University from different geographical areas and different backgrounds, and they went from the University into many different fields of endeavor. The quotations selected for inclusion in the book, although only a small sampling, are representative of these diverse experiences, philosophies, and perspectives. The selected images are a visual representation of this experience. The book contains only a small sampling of the lives, experiences (from both historical and personal perspectives ) and philosophies of the early alumnae. The idealism, hopes and dreams of youth have been vividly and movingly expressed by these women, as well as the struggles and frustrations of their courageous entrance into a campus designed for the instruction and accommodation of men only. This is a digital version of a Bentley Historical Library bulletin published in 2000.

    Collected Works of Abraham Lincoln

    Description

    In 1953, the Abraham Lincoln Association published The Collected Works of Abraham Lincoln, a multi-volume set of Lincoln's correspondence, speeches, and other writings. Roy P. Basler and his editorial staff, with the continued support of the association, spent five years transcribing and annotating Lincoln's papers. The Collected Works of Abraham Lincoln represented the first major scholarly effort to collect and publish the complete writings of Abraham Lincoln, and the edition has remained an invaluable resource to Lincoln scholars. Through the efforts of the Abraham Lincoln Association, the edition is now available in electronic form.
