The internet site Bibnum (http://bibnum.education.fr) has been opened in 2008 by CERIMES, French organism depending of both Ministry for National Education and Ministry for Research. It is a digital library, with a choice of founding scientific texts (articles, chapters of books) of the 19th and 20th centuries: these texts are commented by current scientists who underline their importance, explain the purpose of the author, and bring the text into the light of today's science. The talk will address the genesis of the project, the private-public partnership it develops and its goals.

|Digitizing Ellison (Library of Congress)||
Joseph Fruscione (George Washington University, First-Year Writing) is seeking help for a promising opportunity to help digitize (while maintaining the appropriate permissions) some of the Ellison Papers for the Library of Congress. LoC is currently requesting proposals for third-party digitization of some of their holdings. See http://www.loc.gov/about/business/thirdpartydig/. In Ellison's case, perhaps some of his essay drafts, notes, and other material would be a nice place to start, since they sometimes fly below radar compared to the novels and correspondence.

GenreMapper is particularly helpful for exploring questions related to the representation of the world in nineteenth-century novels. The visualization currently plots the real-world locations that are referenced in novels from 1800-1900, though this time period could be expanded. GenreMapper indicates the relative frequency with which locations are referenced through a sliding color scale; white equals the lowest frequency, dark red the highest. It also allows users to filter findings based on genre(s), which facilitates analyses of the global scope of individual genres.

TAPAS is the TEI Archiving Publishing and Access Service for scholars and other creators of TEI data who need a place to publish their materials in different forms and ensure it remains accessible over time. TAPAS is also for anyone interested in reading and exploring TEI data, and communicating with those that share that interest. The goal of TAPAS is to provide TEI publishing and repository services at low cost to those who lack institutional resources: faculty, students, librarians, archivists, teachers, and anyone else with TEI data who wants to store, share, and publish it.

|Adapting Modernism (tentative)||
I'd like to start a digital project--part collaborative forum, part archive, part teaching tool--regarding adaptations and remediations of literary works. I'm not seeing this as a blog or compendium per se, but more as a diverse, interactive resource for teachers and students involved in courses featuring literary texts and adaptations of them (e.g, film, graphic novel, mashup, visual, etc.). Ideally, such a DH resource would aid us as scholars and as teachers, as well as aiding students in different kinds of courses.

|Public Domain Harlem Shadows||
I am trying to put together an electronic edition of Claude McKay's 1922 collection of poems. There are already a number of different sources for page images (Google Books, the Internet Archive); I'd like to use these to build a solid, well-edited, and lightly marked up TEI edition of the collection, from which we could generate a number of output formats (HTML, ePub, PDF). In addition to the text of McKay's poems itself, the goal would be a sort of "Norton Critical Edition" with a well edited text and histories of the poems with appropriate annotations.

|Find and catalogue lost early electronic literature works||
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.
