The Selected Papers of Margaret Sanger: Book and Digital Editions

The final stages of preparation of volume 3, and preparation of volume 4, which will be the final volume of the print edition.

The Selected Papers of Margaret Sanger, a four-volume book edition, highlights the events that propelled Margaret Sanger's (1879-1966) leadership of the birth control movement, the nature and direction of that leadership, and the strategies, ideas and controversies that characterized this crusade. This proposal seeks funding to complete our final volume, "'Round the World for Birth Control: 1920-1966" and develop the infrastructure for the digital publication of topic-based document groups that will link the narrative flow of the selected book edition with the breadth and comprehensiveness of the microfilm. Our goal in creating a digital Sanger Papers is not to replicate the book or the microfilm, but to take advantage of the unique strengths of the digital medium to create an innovative, fully searchable, documents-based publication that will meet the increased needs of scholars and students, and satisfy future expectations for dynamic publication.
