One of the functions that I hoped the Literary Table might help to fill is the ease of collecting in a central place resources for those who teach in law, literature, law and literature, and related areas.
I am pleased to announce that the Literary Table has opened The Literary Table Zotero Project. Zotero is a research gathering tool that runs through Firefox. Recently, the Zotero project introduced a collaborative aspect. Users can create communities of users to view materials that are stored in libraries and even to contribute materials. This is exactly the type of collaborative mindset that the Literary Table is interested in. The tool is very easy to use. Once installed, while browsing through the internet, if you find something that would be of interest to the Literary Table Community, tag it with Zotero and drop it into the Literary Table Library. Presto! You have shared a resource that someone here would find valuable.
The community is open to anyone to view. However, you must be a member to contribute to the library. I would like to open up the library to any and everyone that has materials to contribute to the law and literature discipline. Simply join Zotero here and then add the Literary Table as a group. I have added collections for:
- Puritan Resources
- Herman Melville’s Bartleby the Scrivener
- Herman Melville’s Billy Budd
