Electronic Literature Collection (ELC), Volume 4: https://collection.eliterature.org
You love ELC1, 2 and 3. Help us now with the development of ELC4. Planning for this new anthology of electronic literature kicks off spring 2019. Funding is needed in support of editorial meetings, website development, and an archival version of the publication for libraries, research centers, and gallery exhibitions.

Electronic Literature Collection Archives (ELA) & Repository: https://elo-repository.org
Support the preservation of electronic literature with a gift to the ELA and Repository. ELO maintains and manages nine collections of electronic literature, reconstituting works like the trAce Online Writing Centre’s frAme journal, making the metadata for over 1000 works available via our Repository, and hosting important collections like Turbulence.org, the Museum of the Essential and Beyond Thatand journals like BeeHiveand Riding the Meridian. Your donation funds the development and maintenance of our collections, digital conservation of outmoded works, the production of metadata, and the future emulation of works.

Electronic Literature Directory (ELD): http://directory.eliterature.org
One of the most useful tools for e-lit scholars is the Electronic Literature Directory. Founded in the early 2000s, the ELD continues to provide descriptions, keywords, and critical commentary for hundreds of e-lit works. Support for the ELD is needed to fund graduate students and early career scholars who serve as editors of the site.

Consortium for Electronic Literature (CELL): http://cellproject.net
The CELL project makes it possible to search for works of electronic literature across participating member databases located across the globe. Funds are used to maintain the CELL search engine and the project website.

Electronic Literature Collection Conference & Media Art Festival: http://elo2019.ucc.ie
Each year ELO hosts a conference and media art festival that fosters the sharing of research and art among members and the larger community. Previous events have been held in Los Angeles, Paris, Bergen, Victoria, B.C., Porto, and Montreal. ELO 2019 will take place in Cork, Ireland. Funds are always needed for bursaries that assist graduate students and unaffiliated scholars and artists with travel and accommodations.

Thank you in advance for your generosity and for your ongoing support of the Electronic Literature Organization.

We are a member-supported organization, and we depend upon your contributions to survive and keep working on behalf of electronic literature. We also strive to make all of our resources publicly available, so there are no parts of our website hidden behind “members only” barriers to try to entice your donations.

Your membership is, however, essential in keeping resources such as the ELO Directory and this site available and updated. It will allow us to continue producing publications, putting on readings and conferences, and advocating the literary possibilities of the digital medium.

The Electronic Literature Organization is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, and is recognized as a charitable institution by the Internal Revenue Service (Federal Tax ID #36-4314614). Your contribution is tax-deductible.
