Creating the Charles Brockden Brown Electronic Archive

Enhancement of an online archive of the writings of Charles Brockden Brown, an early American novelist, historian, and editor. This would entail: integrating bibliographies into a searchable interface, combining 972 text transcriptions with 8,083 images of the original works, and sharing metadata with an aggregator tool for 19th-century digital resources.

The Charles Brockden Brown Electronic Archive and Scholarly Edition at the University of Central Florida's Center for Humanities and Digital Research is requesting funding in order to complete (1) integration of TEI-encoded primary and secondary source bibliographical materials into a searchable interface; (2) implementation of 8,083 JPEG images of documents into 972 corresponding TEI-encoded texts; and (3) integration of archive metadata data with NINES, a digital aggregator tool, to support interoperable search and discovery. This work will for the first time make all of Brown's writings, including his novels, freely available at a single location to scholars, teachers, students, and the general public. It will also allow for comparative research of Brown's writings alongside early nineteenth-century American and European publications, thereby enriching our understanding of how thought and language circulated and informed authorship and literary production during this time.
