    We have published images and a full transcription of Whitman's massive cultural geography scrapbook, along with transcriptions of dozens of related manuscripts. We have also published a series of original essays that explore prevalent themes in this new material, as well as a new resource in which we have begun tracking all of the texts that Whitman is known to have read. We thank the National Endowment for the Humanities for their generous support of this work.
