Literature scholars, librarians, archivists, and historians may be particularly interested in the Modernist Archives Publishing Project (MAPP), an international collaborative project creating "a critical digital archive of early twentieth-century publishers, beginning with Leonard and Virginia Woolf's Hogarth Press (est. 1917)." Launched in June 2017, MAPP focuses on "the stories not so often told about books: how they are made, designed, published, distributed, marketed, and read." This ongoing project contains (thus far) over 4,000 digitized artifacts, including dust jackets, financial records, letters, illustrations, production papers, ephemera, and more. Visitors may browse MAPP's collections by works, people, archival materials, and presses, or they can search the collection for a specific author, publisher, or text. Educators interested in digital humanities may want to check out the teaching section, where they will find syllabi, student work created using MAPP, and published articles. MAPP's team includes scholars from Simon Fraser University and King's University College (Canada), the University of Oregon and Stanford University (US), and the University of Reading (UK).
