The Electronic Literature Organization
The ELO brings together authors, artists, teachers, developers, and scholars to promote the study of electronic literature. It also supports the development of new literary forms.
The organization defines electronic literature as “digital born” works that depend on computing technology to function. For example, the poem Dakota uses Adobe Flash software to create a narrative as the words, rhythmically cued to a frantic solo by a jazz drummer, flash rapidly on the screen.
Preservation, Archiving and Dissemination (PAD) Project
The Library of Congress’s Periodicals Portal, for example, offers a digital alternative to original volumes that have become too fragile or brittle to handle. The portal allows users to search and view the content of each issue and read a transcription of the text.
Digital archiving is translation: it models handwritten, printed, and recorded materials as multilayered documentary and critical simulations of external relations, while also modeling the internal order that reconfigures those material representations. The resulting archive order is simultaneously a multilayered structure of data, an aggregate of multiple digital surrogates, and an investigation into the possibilities of remediated digital representation and database design.
Becoming more sustainable requires a major shift in thinking about what archivists do. It will require that we move beyond a paradigm of preservation as backup, to one in which the primary mission is to keep the past alive in the future.
The conference features students who present their essays, poems and other creative works, and provides an opportunity to network with fellow undergraduate Literature students. Students also participate in virtual sessions led by acclaimed authors, editors and writing professionals.
The lead author of a poster or abstract should attend the conference to present it, but in some cases, this role may be filled by another member of the society sponsoring the submission or by a local presenter. In these circumstances, the author list should clearly state the non-author presenter or sponsor, and the title of the presentation should be amended accordingly.
In addition to presenting their research, participants will discuss ways in which Electronic Literature lends itself to pedagogical experimentation and the potential for multi-modal teaching and learning.
Document paths specify where ELO stores files on a storage medium. You can change the settings for these paths in the lower Administration area. For example, you can set up a new document path, make moved media accessible again, or check the free space on a storage medium. The changes you make here are personal and only affect your own workspaces. You must have the permission Change document paths to edit these settings. Your system administrator can assign this permission to you.
Default document path: Enter the path on the file system where you want to store documents. You can also select whether or not you want to use the path as a backup path. This option is only available for directories of up to 64k documents.
The ELO Repository collects and hosts online journals, works of electronic literature, and community archives. It also houses the metadata for 25 collections of born digital media. The metadata is then used to make the works viewable in their native software environments.
SMEs require intuitive operation and economical software solutions that are easily extendable. The ELOprofessional and ELOenterprise suites optimally meet these demands with a modular structure, sophisticated permission options, and a high degree of configuration flexibility.
The MobileConnector allows you to capture paper documents and files with your smartphone and file them directly in the repository via drag-and-drop. Moreover, it is easy to process incoming e-mails with ELOoffice. This way, all important information is immediately available, even outside the office. The ELO Scan&Archive function automatically files recurring documents and e-mails in the repository.
