The purpose of the Model Editions Partnership is to explore ways of creating editions of historical documents which meet the standards scholars traditionally use in preparing printed editions. Equally important is our goal of making these materials more widely available via the Web. Nine of the experimental mini-editions are based on full-text searchable document transcriptions; two are based on document images; and one is based on both images and text.

Documentary History of the First Federal Congress 
Documentary History of the Ratification of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights 
The Frederick Douglass Papers  
The Papers of Dwight David Eisenhower  
The Marcus Garvey and UNIA Papers  
Papers of General Nathanael Greene 
The Papers of Joseph Henry  
Papers of Henry Laurens 
The Papers of George Catlett Marshall  
Eleanor Roosevelt Papers 
Margaret Sanger Papers 
Papers of Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Susan B. Anthony 

This page is part of the MEP Sampler, which includes samples from the participating projects which can be browsed or searched, information for documentary editors, and technical information for people who need to look `under the hood'.

This project was made possible in part by a grant from the National Historical Publications and Records Commission and a software grant from the Inso Corporation and Enigma Inc. Initiated at the University of South Carolina in the Department of History in the then College of Liberal Arts, the project was later moved into and supported until 2009 by the Division of Libraries and Information Systems.

In 2011 the material was re-hosted on the present site by Black Mesa Technologies LLC.
