"The First World War Poetry Digital Archive will contain primary source material from some of the major British poets from the First World War. This will consist predominantly of manuscripts and letters from Wilfred Owen, Isaac Rosenberg, Robert Graves, Edward Thomas and Vera Brittain, plus contextual information such as images, video and audio. It will also innovatively show how these can be embedded in teaching, include facilities to help researchers and lecturers personalise their interactions with the site, and open the archive up for remote deposit via its Community Collection, The Great War Archive. This project builds on the Virtual Seminars for Teaching Literature Project which was funded by the JISC under the JTAP scheme for (1996-98) and is widely used in schools, FE colleges, and for University teaching and research. The new archive will be launched on the 11th November 2008, the 90th anniversary of the Armistice."
