The Writing University Archive

Virtual Writing University Archives

The Writing University Archive represents a collaboration between the School of Library and Information Science and the writing programs on campus at The University of Iowa. This collaboration has resulted in a digital library that houses recordings of literary readings that have occurred around Iowa City and at The UI, primarily with writers from the International Writing Program and the Iowa Writers Workshop. The Writing University Archive is directed by Jim Elmborg.
