Digital archives like the William Blake Archive and Early English Books Online (EEBO) have made manuscript materials that may have been difficult to access in the past more readily available.  This roundtable seeks brief presentations on the use of manuscript materials pertaining to the British Romantic period in teaching, research and publications -- what have been your successes, what difficulties have you and/or your students faced, etc. What are the advantages of using online manuscript materials and what are disadvantages?  Papers pertaining to any aspect of William Blake's manuscript materials are especially welcome; such papers could be considered for a volume of essays on Blake's manuscripts.   All abstracts and proposals must be submitted through the NeMLA portal -- no exceptions. Queries are welcome; direct to the organizer of the panel.
