English Ballad Archive, 1500-1800
"Dedicated to mounting online extant ballads published in English from 1500-1800, the English Department's Early Modern Center at the University of California at Santa Barbara has begun by archiving the over 1,800 ballads in the Samuel Pepys collection. Thanks go to the Pepys Library at Magdalene College, Cambridge, for granting us unprecedented permission to archive their ballad holding. Additional thanks go to the NEH for generously awarding the EMC's proposal requesting $325,000 over the course of the next two years (2006-2008) to complete its Pepys Ballad Archive"
