The Collaborative Bibliographies were generated from discussion and query threads on T-AMLIT (the "Teaching the American Literatures" discussion list). All of the bibliographies are comprised of the initial query by a member of the discussion list, and subsequent responses to those queries. The responses come in all sizes, ranging from a single line with an author and title suggestion to several paragraphs.
The Collaborative Bibliographies make no claim to comprehensiveness. The great advantage of these bibliographies is their origin from a community of teachers whose collective wisdom puts most of the text, author and title information into some kind of practical and personal context.
The Collaborative Bibliographies can be read in two ways: they can be read from the Bibliography (a straightforward listing of titles with links to the original postings), or as Threads (the sequential files of the entire thread, including the initial query and all the responses). Bibliographic information contained in the T-AMLIT threads has been enhanced and filled out by interns in Georgetown's Center for Electronic Projects in American Culture Studies.
