Harvard’s Houghton Library has added a new feature to their Blogger site, entitled You’ve Got Mail, highlighting archival epistolary collections of note. From the inaugural post:
“This posting inaugurates a new weekly feature on the Houghton Library blog, “You’ve Got Mail,” based on letters in Houghton Library. Every Friday this year a Houghton staff member will select a letter from the diverse collections in the Library and put that letter into context. It is our hope that this feature will introduce you to the amazing variety of correspondence included in our collections and the topics, mundane and momentous, personal and universal, they explore.”
What a lovely way to highlight both popular and lesser-known collections! Search for the tag You’veGotMail in a few weeks for multiple posts, or subscribe to their RSS for easy-readin’!
