LITIR Project on Victorian Studies

In February 1981, an innovative project on the application of the computer in literary studies was launched at the University of Alberta. In the years since, LITIR (Literary Information and Retrieval) Database has been established as an indispensable source of current information on every important publication from 1945 to date on every field of nineteenth-century British studies.
