*Resources for American Literary Study*

Resources for American Literary Study, a peer-reviewed journal of archival and bibliographical scholarship, is inviting submissions for upcoming volumes 41.1 and 41.2 (2019). Covering all periods of American literature, Resources for American Literary Study welcomes both traditional and digital humanities approaches to archival discovery and bibliography. The journal also welcomes pedagogically focused submissions examining archival study in the classroom.

Founded in 1971, Resources for American Literary Study remains the only major scholarly periodical of its kind. Each issue includes, in addition to archival and bibliographical research, related book reviews and a unique “Prospects” essay in which a leading scholar identifies new directions in the study of major authors. Beginning in 2019, the journal will move from an annual to a bi-annual publication, with volumes available in print and digitally.
