The ELL Catalog serves two purposes for the Electronic Literature Lab (ELL). First, it documents the works held in ELL’s three collections––the Dene Grigar Collection, the Electronic Literature Organization Collection, and the Marjorie C. Luesebrink Collection. Second, it provides visitors to ELL with information about the platform and software needed for experiencing a specific work in one of the collections. Both a preservation and finding tool, the ELL Catalog aims to afford accessibility to information about works of electronic literature to both remote and local visitors. It is overseen by Dr. Dene Grigar and maintained by ELL’s staff, all of whom are supported by the Washington State University System and Washington State University Vancouver (WSUV).

Directions for using the ELL Catalog can be found on the How to Use the Catalog page.

Founded and directed by Dene Grigar, the Electronic Literature Lab is used for advanced inquiry into the preservation, curation, creation and criticism of born digital literary works and related media. For more information about ELL, visit ELL History.
