Scope and Content Note

Born digital materials in this collection come from five 3.5” floppy disks. Files range from 1993-2002.

Files include text documents containing bibliographies, book drafts, and new poem drafts. Book drafts include A Walled Garden, The Wind Beyond the Wall, and Winter in the Eye.

Restrictions on Access

Access to born digital materials is only available in the Stuart A. Rose Manuscript, Archives, and Rare Book Library (the Rose Library). Use of the original digital media is restricted.

Processing Note

Forensic disk images were created from the floppy disks using KryoFlux. Individual files were extracted from forensic images of the 3.5” floppy disks using FTK Imager. Files were scanned for viruses using McAfee's anti-virus software; infected files were cleaned upon extraction. Files were scanned for personally identifiable information; none were found. 82 text-based files were migrated to PDF using LibreOffice.

File names have been maintained.
