    The <http://www.mith.umd.edu/>Maryland Institute for Technology in the
    Humanities (MITH) is pleased to announce the launch of the
    <http://www.mith2.umd.edu:8080/eada>Early Americas Digital Archive (EADA),
    a collection of electronic texts written in or about the Americas from 1492
    to approximately 1820. EADA is driven by an XML database that allows robust
    searching, either by keyword (such as author, title, period, geographical
    region, genre, etc.) or full text. The Archive also features a collection
    of links to early American texts on the Internet. EADA is freely available
    to the public for research and teaching purposes. It has been created by
    the staff of MITH under the directorship of Prof. Ralph Bauer as a
    long-term inter-disciplinary project committed to exploring the
    intersections between traditional humanities research and digital
    technologies. EADA invites scholars from all disciplines, including
    graduate students, to submit their editions of early American texts for
    publication on its site. For further information, please visit the EADA at
