Pamela Caughie (Loyola University Chicago) and Rebecca Cameron (DePaul University) gave a workshop on Woolf Online at the Digital Diversity Conference in Edmonton, Canada on May 7, 2015.
WoolfOnline.com includes all of the primary documents representing Woolf’s 1927 classic modernist novel To the Lighthouse, with a large array of supporting and ancillary materials. Using a new Content Management System (Mojulem), Woolf Online contains over 5,000 records, including the manuscript, typescripts, and all first editions of the novel as well as diary entries, letters, memoirs, essays and more.
At the workshop, Pamela and Rebecca demonstrated the site’s features and usability for teaching and scholarship, and called for proposals for expanding Woolf Online to other full-length works by Virginia Woolf. Hannah Gillow Kloster (U of Bergen, Norway) Skyped in to demonstrate her Digital Orlando project as an example.
Woolf Online is one of the peer reviewed projects searchable through ModNets.
