The Library Electronic Text Resource Service (LETRS) provides
humanities-related electronic texts to the IU-Bloomington community on
the internet and in the LETRS Humanities Computing Lab in the Main
Library. LETRS also works to build and support a user community adept
at the creation and use of electronic texts. LETRS also supports the
electronic text components of Indiana University's Digital Library
Program projects and initiatives.
LETRS is a partnership of
University Information Technology Services and the IU Libraries.
Texts: LETRS provides access to a number of large commercial
and homegrown full-text databases. The texts are marked up in SGML
(Standard Generalized Markup Language) and are searchable. The texts
focus on the humanities and include such database as the Oxford English
Dictionary, English Poetry, American Poetry, Eighteenth-Century
(British) Fiction, African-American Poetry, Nietzsche, and more.
These texts are available on the internet at http://calliope.ucs.indiana.edu.
In most cases, access to these texts is restricted to IU-Bloomington
- LETRS Humanities Computing Lab:
At the LETRS Humanities Computing Lab in the Main Library, LETRS provides access to a number of commercial texts.
These texts are in different formats (usually CD-ROM based) and run on Windows or MacOS
platforms. In the LETRS public facility there are a number of MacOS and Windows machines available to the IU
community and the public for accessing these text collections.
Again, the focus is on the humanities topics.
- Electronic Text Consultation: LETRS provides consultation,
education, and tools for the creation of electronic texts.
IU researchers wishing to create their own electronic texts can come to LETRS to learn more about electronic text
creation, and can also use some of the tools in our public facility (scanners, OCR software, etc.) to aid them in
their electronic text projects. Our primary focus is on electronic text creation using the Standard Generalized
Markup Language (SGML) and the Extensible Markup Language (XML), two widely accepted computing standards.
