Forget Me Not Hypertextual Archive

A frames-based, static HTML scholarly edition of British literary annuals 1823-1847. The project, originally conceived as a chapter of a dissertation in 2000, contains high-resolution images of these books' table of contents, engravings, title pages, and boards. The project also lists prominent contributors from the Romantic and Victorian periods as well as tables of engravers, painters, editors, and publishers.

The metadata has been transferred to The Poetess Archive Database, but we have yet to figure out how we would like to represent the Forget Me Not as a scholarly edition (along with representing the books' materiality) within the PAD. The entire FMN Archive lacks dynamic search capabilities. What it needs is crowd-sourced capabilities and a platform that will allow the entire Archive to become an archive of all British literary annuals.
