William Blake Archive Update
The editors of the William Blake Archive <http://www.iath.virginia.edu/blake/> are pleased to announce the opening of a major new wing of the site, devoted to documentation and supplementary materials “About the Archive.” Available as the first entry on our main table of contents page from the URL above, the “About the Archive” materials consist of:
A brief overview of the Archive for first-time or hurried users, entitled The Archive at a Glance; a statement of Editorial Principles and Methodology; a technical summary of the Archive’s design and implementation; a Frequently Asked Questions list; a reference page listing articles by members of the project team, as well as reviews and notices of the Archive by others; an updated and expanded version of the article-length Plan of the Archive, providing additional detail about our intentions with regard to Blake’s non-illuminated works.
Also included are information about the editors, an account of the editors’ collaboration with the Institute for Advanced Technology in the Humanities, and a link to our extensive Help documentation. In addition, we will shortly be adding a Tour of the Archive to these materials (combining textual narration, graphical screenshots, and suggestions as to how to use the Archive). A complete update can be found at the Archive website. [Morris Eaves, Robert N. Essick, and Joseph Viscomi]
