Overview and metadata sections
This collection was begun in 2016 in an attempt to documents websites and social media related to authors, playwrights, and other literary figures and organizations which complement and enrich existing literary collections held in Special Collections. The websites crawled are a curated sample, representative of the collecting policies at the University of Delaware Library to document American literature, Irish literature, and English-language theatre. Sites will continue to be added to the collection in the future. The complete web archive is available at https://www.archive-it.org/collections/6859.

The first series, American literature, include websites and social media sites for various American authors, poets, dramatists, journalists and literary publications.
The second series, Irish literature, include websites for various Irish authors, poets, dramatists and literary publications. The third series, Theater, includes websites and social media sites for playwrights, screenwriters and local theaters.
