Abstract

Article describes resources available online via Mark Twain's Mississippi Project web site (http://dig.lib.niu.edu/twain) and argues that they represent an important means by which non-specialist users may imagine and understand the Mississippi Valley of the nineteenth century, made famous in Twain's literature. It argues that most digital library and digital humanities projects are prepared with a specialist audience in mind, overlooking the web's tremendous potential for reaching a broader public.
