ABC Books

The ABC Books project makes available for research and analysis an interactive digital archive of rare children’s alphabet books from the University’s Cotsen Children’s Library. The overarching goal of the project is for students not only to interact with the archive but also actively to build and enhance it. With the assistance of staff from the Center for Digital Humanities and the McGraw Center for Teaching and Learning, this archive was developed for use in ENG 385: Children’s Literature. During the course, students were given opportunities to work with the archive, learn the basics of text encoding, tag page images, and perform computational text analysis.
