Emily Dickinson page updated

In updating the Emily Dickinson page, I was struck by how many of the sites had chosen to lock up their information and require subscriptions:
  • The Emily Dickinson Journal used to have archived articles online; it's now available only through Project Muse (subscription database for Johns Hopkins U P journals)
  • The Emily Dickinson Bulletin, which is put out by the Emily Dickinson International Society, used to have some articles as well; now it has only the minutes of meetings.
  • Atlantic Unbound, which formerly gave free access to older Atlantic articles, is now for subscribers only.

There may be more information available than there was in 2000 or 2001, but you'll have to pay for it.
