The Almanacks of Mary Moody Emerson: A Scholarly Digital Edition. Ed. with Sandra Harbert Petrulionis, in collaboration with the Women Writers Project. Twelve Almanack folders have been published and can be accessed in Women Writers Online at: http://www.wwp.northeastern.edu/wwo/. They can also be viewed in an experimental prototype interface, free to the public, that provides an initial model of what the future Women Writers Online interface can do with our editorial work: http://www.wwp.northeastern.edu/research/projects/manuscripts/emerson/index.html
