Corpus of Modern Scottish Writing (CMSW) launch

St Andrew's Day marks the public launch of the University of Glasgow's
latest Digital Humanities project, the Corpus of Modern Scottish
Writing. For the first time the resource makes freely available a wide
range of documents in Scots and Scottish English from 1700-1945, ranging
from a rare first edition of Robert Burns' poems to letters from the
explorer David Livingstone to murder trial transcripts dating back to
the 1750s.

The free online resource contains texts, digital images and searchable
transcriptions, and can be found at:

The Corpus also features James Hogg's first ever book - a treatise on
diseases of sheep; personal accounts of the 1715 uprising; letters to
Scotland from the French-Indian war and from emigrants to Australia in
the 19th century. City Council minutes are also present along with a
work on spiritualism by Arthur Conan Doyle, novels and student
disciplinary trials of the 18th century and a selection of personal
letters and diaries that give an invaluable insight into Scottish life
in days gone by.

The CMSW project has been funded by the Arts and Humanities Research
Council (AHRC), and run by the University's Department of English
Language, now part of the School of Critical Studies.
