Walt Whitman Archive
Whitman Archive is an online teaching and research tool dedicated to
gathering in one place all of this great American writer's work.
Co-directed by Professor Kenneth M. Price, the Hillegass Professor of American
Literature at UNL, the Whitman Archive is used every day by between 10,000
and 15,000 students, teachers and researchers around the world, and that number
is growing as the Archive expands. Price works with a
Ed Folsom of the University of Iowa, and a team of 25 scholars and graduate
students at Iowa, Nebraska, Duke and the University of Virginia.
The Archive makes freely available all of Whitman's published work in
reliable and searchable editions and allows users to examine facsimiles of his
poetry manuscripts and rare copies of the early editions of his work.
The Whitman Archive has been featured in numerous publications and is
recognized as one of the most ambitious and significant technological projects
in the humanities. The Archive places the University of Nebraska at the
forefront in this field.
Your Gift Matters Your gift supports the hiring of graduate assistants
to help with the arduous work of transcribing and encoding thousands of Whitman
manuscripts for inclusion in the Archive and helps cover the many expenses of
maintaining a vast online archive. The goal is to keep the Archive free
and open worldwide, and your gift will go a long way toward making that possible.
