The Collected Works of Abraham Lincoln

I just want to take a minute to share this electronic resource with you. As a librarian, I am always on the look out for excellent quality resources to share with students and faculty. This is indeed a superlative effort:

The Collected Works of Abraham Lincoln [http://quod.lib.umich.edu/l/lincoln/] - In 1953, the Abraham Lincoln Association published The Collected Works of Abraham Lincoln, a multi-volume set of Lincoln's correspondence, speeches, and other writings. Roy P. Basler and his editorial staff, with the continued support of the association, spent five years transcribing and annotating Lincoln's papers. The Collected Works of Abraham Lincoln represented the first major scholarly effort to collect and publish the complete writings of Abraham Lincoln, and the edition has remained an invaluable resource to Lincoln scholars. Through the efforts of the Abraham Lincoln Association, the edition is now available in electronic form.

The Collection may be searched by simple words or phrases, Boolean searches, proximity searches, and word index to find the occurence of unique words.

The information in this post is provided by the hosting website of The Collected Works of Abraham Lincoln.
