The British Women Romantic Poets Online Text Collection is a growing collection,consisting in 2003 of 100 online full-text
transcriptions of poetry written by women in England, Scotland, and Ireland between 1789 and 1832 and SGML encoded using the
TEI-Lite dtd. The collection was created by The British Women Romantic Poets Project at the University of California, Davis
Library and is available online free of charge at http://www.lib.ucdavis.edu/BWRP/.
In January of 1997, librarians at the Shields Library began a pilot with the library's Kohler Collection, to see whether it
was feasible to convert these texts to electronic formats, thus making them accessible to students and scholars over the internet.
Projects at Indiana and Brown pointed to the usefulness of such E-Texts, particularly when encoded with attention to structure
and accurate transcription. Selection CriteriaGENERAL EDITOR:
