The public gitgub repo I setup is requiring a login for some reason.  Troubleshooting now so ignore this invitation for now (oh, the humiliation and the irony).  I will repost once stuff is actually open to to the public.

Viva Open Access,



In honor of Open Access Week, and motivated by a recent mock keynote debate, "A Matter of Scale<>," presented by Matt Jockers and Julia Flanders as part of the Boston Area Days of Digital Humanities Conference<>, I present for exploration, re-use and re-mixing outside of their native interfaces TEI (P4 & P5) and plain text files of the following e-text collections published by the Indiana University (IU) Libraries:

  *   Indiana Magazine of History<>, one the nation's oldest scholarly historical journal, 1905-2011 (TEI P4)
  *   Victorian Women Writers Project<>, 1830-1929 (TEI P5)
  *   Indiana Authors and Their Books<>, 1850-1929 (TEI Lite P4)
  *   Brevier Legislative Reports<>, transcripts from Indiana State Legislature, 1858-1887 (TEI P5)
  *   Wright American Fiction,1851-1875 (TEI P5)

These files are made available for use under the Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial 3.0 (CC BY-NC 3.0<>) license and can be downloaded or forked from githib,, which includes a detailed readme file that you should, um, read, about this initiative.

I encourage you to share your uses (intended, past, and future) of this data on our repository's wiki space: <> so we can track your magic.

Have fun!
