        Subject: Siegfried Sassoon collection online

The First World War Poetry Archive is pleased to announce that the Siegfried Sassoon collection is now live at: 


This draws from collections at Oxford, Cambridge, New York Public Library, and the Harry Ransom Center. The primary focus is on manuscript variants of Sassoon's 'war poetry' contained in the collections 'The Old Huntsman', 'Counter-Attack', and 'Picture Show'. You are free to use the images for educational purposes (see http://www.oucs.ox.ac.uk/ww1lit/permitteduse.html). 

In effect this represents the last collection that will be going live, as part of the project. The funding for this two-year initiative came from the Joint Information Systems Committee as part of their Digitisation Programme. Please feel free to pass this on,
