The Charles Dickens Letters Project

This project makes available all the correspondence of Charles Dickens which has come to light since 2002, the year in which the final volume of the Pilgrim Edition of The Letters of Charles Dickens (OUP) was published, with scholarly annotations and refined search. The site, which is fully open access and regularly updated, was built using Drupal (written in PHP with a MySQL database). Installed modules are used to add specific functionality, such as the ability to tag letters with themes, and a standardised format for metadata generation that facilitates searching by correspondent and date.
