Creation of an electronic archive comprising the manuscripts and early editions of the English Romantic writers Mary Wollstonecraft, William Godwin, Percy Bysshe Shelley, and Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley. The project would draw on materials held by English and American libraries with the technical collaboration of the Maryland Institute for Technology in the Humanities (MITH).

The New York Public Library (NYPL) proposes to create an electronic Shelley-Godwin Archive comprising the works of Mary Wollstonecraft, William Godwin, Percy Bysshe Shelley and Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley. The Archive will draw primarily from the two foremost collections of these materials, those of the Bodleian Library of the University of Oxford and The Carl H. Pforzheimer Collection of Shelley and His Circle at NYPL. It will also include working notebooks of P.B. Shelley held at the Huntington, Harvard, and the British Library. The Maryland Institute for Technology in the Humanities (MITH) will develop the Archive's technological infrastructure, which will build on that developed for the Shakespeare Quartos Archive. With the creation of the Archive, manuscripts and important early editions of these four writers will be made freely available to the public via an archival framework constituting a new model of best practice for research libraries.
