Mapping The Green Book

Posted by Mapping The Gre... on August 27, 2012

This project, simply stated, is to map the best known of a handful of travel guides published specifically for African Americans from the 1930s through the 1960s including "Travelguide (Vacation and Recreation Without Humiliation)" and "The Negro Motorist Green Book." During the period between the onset of Jim Crow and the beginning of the Civil Rights movement, "the Green Book" and other guides were trusted sources for lodging, restaurants, fuel stations and other amenities that were friendly and open to African American travelers.

Find and catalogue lost early electronic literature works

Posted by Deena Larsen on June 30, 2012

Electronic literature is a new field of works that incorporate digital elements as an integral part of the literature. The field of electronic literature now has 20 years of exciting works available. However, these works of literature are quietly being lost as new browsers and programs come along and the authors who host them no longer do so. We need to inventory these works to discover which works work, which ones need work, and which ones need to be found.
