Editor's Notes

  • PROBLEM – SOLUTION structure
  • Nicki Saylor:
    We are harvesting almost 50 sites that document and serve as platforms for:  *   creating and sharing vernacular cultural forms such as reaction GIFs, image macros and memes;  *   establishing, shaping and disseminating tropes and themes in communication on the web;  *   vernacular language like Leet and Lolspeak, and icon-based communications like emoji;  *   DIY (do it yourself) movements such as crafting and making;  *   documentation, development, proliferation, distribution and discussion of digital “urban legends” and lore, such as creepy pasta; and the development and dissemination of vernacular creative forms such as fan fiction. This collection is not yet available on the Library’s website, but online access is in the works. See more about the Library’s Web Archiving program http://www.loc.gov/webarchiving/
  • We can’t archive the whole Internet, or even the folkloric Internet!
  • 52,400 titles: 47,600 books
    1,138 journals
    and more
    Collection grows constantly

    Editor's Notes

  • PROBLEM – SOLUTION structure
  • Nicki Saylor:
    We are harvesting almost 50 sites that document and serve as platforms for:  *   creating and sharing vernacular cultural forms such as reaction GIFs, image macros and memes;  *   establishing, shaping and disseminating tropes and themes in communication on the web;  *   vernacular language like Leet and Lolspeak, and icon-based communications like emoji;  *   DIY (do it yourself) movements such as crafting and making;  *   documentation, development, proliferation, distribution and discussion of digital “urban legends” and lore, such as creepy pasta; and the development and dissemination of vernacular creative forms such as fan fiction. This collection is not yet available on the Library’s website, but online access is in the works. See more about the Library’s Web Archiving program http://www.loc.gov/webarchiving/
  • We can’t archive the whole Internet, or even the folkloric Internet!

    Leveraging data storage and computational infrastructure at Indiana University and the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, the HTRC will provision a secure computational and data environment for scholars to perform research using the HathiTrust Digital Library. --https://www.hathitrust.org/htrc
