The University of Wisconsin Digital Collections initiative is well regarded for their masterful online offerings, and this gem fits nicely into that corpus. This extensive annotated bibliography covers scholarship on the history and influence of new communication technologies. To clarify, the term "new" is used in a historical sense, so this bibliography contains over 3,200 titles linked by 11,000 key terms. Some of the communication technologies covered here include radio, telegrams, a range of sound recordings, and telephones. First-time visitors may want to use the "About the Collection" to learn a bit more about the breadth and depth of this resource. Professor Stephen Vaughan is responsible for this ambitious project, and visitors to this section can read an extended essay on his own work and methodology here as well. Visitors can search the collection by keyword or they can also use the "guided search" option to focus in on specific items using a more specific set of terms and parameters.
