Black Drama: Second Edition Winner 2004 Choice Award for Outstanding Academic Title
Black Drama, now in its expanded second edition, contains the full text of more than 1,460 plays written from the mid-1800s to the present by more than 230 playwrights from North America, English-speaking Africa, the Caribbean, and other African diaspora countries. Many of the works are rare, hard to find, or out of print. James Vernon Hatch, the playwright, historian, and curator of the landmark Hatch-Billops Collection, is the project’s editorial advisor. Over 40 percent of the collection consists of previously unpublished plays by writers such as Langston Hughes, Ed Bullins, Willis Richardson, Amiri Baraka, Randolph Edmonds, Zora Neale Hurston, and many others. Each play is extensively and deeply indexed, allowing both keyword and multi-fielded searching. The plays are accompanied by reference materials, significant ancillary information, a rich performance database, and images. The result is an exceptionally deep and unified collection that illustrates the many purposes that black theater has served: to give testimony to the ancient foundations of black culture; to protest injustices; to project emerging images of the New Black; and to give voice to the many and varied expressions of black creativity.
Black Short Fiction and Folklore Winner 2004 Library Journal Best Reference Database
Black Short Fiction and Folklore brings together more than 80,000 pages and 11,000 works of short fiction produced by writers from Africa and the African Diaspora from the earliest times to the present. The materials have been compiled from early literary magazines, archives, and the personal collections of the authors. Some 30 percent of the collection is fugitive or ephemeral, or has never been published before. The project unifies an astounding variety of traditions ranging from early African oral traditions to today’s hip-hop. It covers fables, parables, ballads, folk-tales, short story cycles, and novellas—all the writings included have fewer than 10,000 words. The presentation of this material in a single, cohesive, searchable form— together with extensive indexing—enables scholars to study the writings in a wholly new way. Users can trace the evolution of the genre from its beginnings through to the present, with a comprehensive resource. For instance, with one search, users can find numerous examples of literary devices that are native to black short fiction, such as trickster tales—a type of folktale in which animals exhibit human speech and behaviors.

Black Women Writers Black Women Writers presents 100,000 pages of literature and essays on feminist issues, written by authors from Africa and the African Diaspora. Facing both sexism and racism, black women needed to create their own identities and movements. The collection documents that effort, presenting the woman’s perspective on the diversity and development of black people generally, and in particular the works document the evolution of black feminism. Many of the writings have been hidden in rare and hard to find texts, obscure typewritten documents, photocopied journals, and other fugitive sources. Coverage of African American women begins in the eighteenth century with narratives depicting slavery, moves through and beyond the Harlem Renaissance, and includes writers from the movements of the 1960s, covering womanism, black feminism, and related topics. African women came into their own as writers during the late 1950s and 1960s, following the winds of independence that swept across Africa, and Black Women Writers includes works by a wide range of authors from that period, as well as writings from women in more than 20 African countries.
Caribbean Literature The literature of the Caribbean is exceptional, both in language and subject. More than a million and a half Africans, along with many Indians and South Asians, were brought to the Caribbean between the fifteenth and nineteenth centuries. Today, their descendants are active in literature and the arts, producing literature with strong and direct ties to traditional African expressions. This literary connection, combined with the tales of survival, exile, resistance, endurance, and emigration to other parts of the Americas, makes for a body of work that is essential for the study of the Caribbean and the Black Diaspora—and indeed central for our understanding of the New World. And yet the works are often hard to find or altogether lost. Caribbean Literature remedies this, with more than 100,000 pages of poems, drama, novels, stories, and related material at completion—carefully located and secured from archives and rare book libraries, licensed from local publishing houses, and received from the authors themselves.
Jazz Music Library For online listening of thousands of jazz artists, ensembles, albums, and genres, Jazz Music Library is essential for any jazz history, performance, theory, or music appreciation course.

Also included are Marian McPartland’s Peabody Award-winning Piano Jazz Radio Broadcasts and never-before-released performances from the Monterey Jazz Festival and great jazz venues. Listen to Chicago jazz, New Orleans jazz, 1920s jazz, big bands, acid jazz, Latin jazz, and more—over 130,000 tracks and growing.

South and Southeast Asian Literature South and Southeast Asian Literature displays the literary imagination and linguistic inventiveness of writers who are negotiating life in a transnational world and multiple cultural identities. Scholars of literature, anthropology, linguistics, postcolonial theory and criticism, history, politics, and culture will find the collection rich in insights into modern experiences and their traditional connections. Searchable together for the first time are thousands of pages of fiction, short fiction, poems, interviews, and manuscript materials, written in English from the end of the colonial era to the present. One of the most exciting elements in the collection is the interplay of literary traditions. Influences as disparate at the Mahabharata and Charles Dickens are evident in the same piece. Postmodern literary techniques help tell ancient stories, and contemporary political parables are teased out of classic epics from the oral tradition. Some of the authors use formal English, while others play with the boundaries of language, merging English prefixes with local words or phrases, or writing English in the cadences of local languages.

Virtually all North American groups are represented—nearly 500 in all. The project integrates autobiographies, biographies, Indian publications, oral histories, personal writings, photographs, drawings, and audio files for the first time.

British and Irish Women’s Letters and Diaries Winner 2008 Choice Award for Outstanding Academic Title
British and Irish Women’s Letters and Diaries spans more than 400 years of personal writings, bringing together the voices of women from England, Scotland, Ireland, and Wales. The database lets researchers view history in the context of women’s thoughts—their struggles, achievements, passions, pursuits, and desires. With over 100,000 pages of material assembled from numerous bibliographies and from newly conducted research, the collection also provides 4,000 facsimile pages of previously unpublished manuscripts. Because the project captures materials that are written contemporaneously, readers see the honest, often stark perspective of the moment, as opposed to the self-censored attitudes that can appear in a memoir.
Irish Women Poets of the Romantic Period This collection comprises more than eighty volumes of poetry by Irish women writing between 1768 and 1842, a significant, but largely underappreciated body of work. Most of the texts are rare, existing in print in fewer than five libraries in the world. Along with the poetic texts are biographical and critical essays contributed by the world’s foremost poetry scholars and other supporting resources. For nearly two centuries, the distinctive voices of such poets as Henrietta Battier, I. S. Anna Liddiard, Adelaide O’Keeffe, Elizabeth Ryves, and Melesina Trench have remained practically unheard. Irish Women Poets of the Romantic Period allows these women to speak to a new generation of students and scholars.

Scottish Women Poets of the Romantic Period This electronic collection of over sixty volumes of lyric poetry by Scottish women, written between 1789 and 1832, endeavors to fill a gap in our knowledge of and access to this large and comprehensive body of work.

Seldom have any but the most specialized twentieth-century literary histories of the period paid serious attention to the dozens of Scottish women poets who were active at the time and whose work and influence were in many instances familiar and admired by their male contemporaries. In addition to bibliographical essays putting the works in context, the collection includes the works of approximately 70 poets, each with biographical sketches including what is known about their lives, and a bibliography of their primary works and of criticism and reviews. Sample authors include Agnes Lyon, Carolina Oliphant, Catherine Ward, Dorothea Primrose Campbell, Frances Chadwick, Margaretta Wedderburn, and Jessie Stewart.
