Preparation for print publication of volumes 37, 38, and 39 and online publication of volumes 36, 37, and 38 of the Collected Letters. (36 months)

Begun in 1970, the Duke-Edinburgh edition of the Collected Letters of Thomas and Jane Welsh Carlyle is regarded by biographers, historians, critics, students, and general readers as one of the finest and most comprehensive literary archives of the nineteenth century. Thirty-six volumes have been published to date in book form by Duke University Press, and the first thirty-two volumes of the project were published in September 2007 as The Carlyle Letters Online ( This culmination of a nine-year effort to bring the Carlyles to the digital world has increased the global accessibility of the edition, with the online version registering an average of approximately 160,000 hits per week in thirty-five to forty different countries. With its impending aggregation into the NINES consortium, the CLO has established itself as a leader in the now essential venture of digital humanities.
