CARRIE, a full-text electronic library
Carrie is now part of the History of Open Access digital libraries on the web. Carrie has been in operation since May of 1993 having begun as a Lynx text browser site. Carrie was the first World Wide Web full-text online history library created in 1993 by Lynn H. Nelson, Emeritus Professor of History, University of Kansas, USA. From April 2006, CARRIE was moved to the European University Institute, Florence, Italy as part of the WWW-VL History Central Catalogue. Selection of European oriented contents:
  • The Carrie Eurasia Collection (CEC).
  • Donated e-books under copyright.
  • Robert Helmerichs: Rob's Norman bibliography.
  • EuroDocs: Primary Historical Documents From Western Europe maintained by Richard Hacken at Brigham Young University's Harold B. Lee Library, links to Western European (mainly primary) historical documents that are transcribed, reproduced in facsimile, or translated.
  • Jon J. Crump: Wales and the Marches, 1230 CE: Llywelyn Fawr, Prince of Wales, and the Execution of William de Braose.
  • The López Martín Collection. This collection inspired by the Spanish and Portuguese Historical Society (SPHP) and sustained by Lynn H. Nelson (University of Kansas), Jack Owens (Idaho State University), and Ignacio López Martín is since 1996 the first step of a wider project regarding the use of Internet to study Early Modern Iberian history.
  • The Medical Front WWI, is concerned with all Medical aspects, Military and Civilian, of World War One.
  • Medieval Tournai: An Academic Resource Center to provide a supplement to Herman of Tournai, The Restoration of the Monastery of St. Martin of Tournai, Translated, With and Introduction and Notes by Lynn H. Nelson (Washington, DC: Catholic University of America Press, 1996).
  • The Planctus for William Longsword.. The author, Rob Helmerichs, calls this site "a laboratory in medieval philology," and indeed it offers a wealth of material for anyone interested in the transmission and interpretation of medieval texts. The Planctus is a vexing text and therefore particularly suited for such scrutiny. A mourning poem written soon after the assassination of William Longsword in 942, it idealizes this son of the viking Rollo, who had ravaged France until its king granted him the territory around Rouen, seed of the future duchy of Normandy.
  • The World War I Document Archive has been assembled by volunteers of the World War I Military History List (WWI-L). The archive is international in focus and intends to present in one location primary documents concerning the Great War. It is maintained by Richard Hacken and Jane Plotke, Harold B. Lee Library, Brigham Young University, Provo, Utah, USA.
  • De laude eremi Eucherius of Arles, transcribed by Todd Wilson.
