Tweeting Civil War diaries

It took some 19th-century journals to drag us into using the 21st-century equivalent, but we’re finally on Twitter. Follow us at UIL-transcripts, or drop by the Civil War Diaries Transcription Project┬ásite to read our Tweets and see other enhancements, including newly-added diaries and an improved design (we’re still smarting from the old version being compared on Reddit.com to the Bush-Gore Florida ballot, ouch).

Still can’t get enough? Hear more In Real Life at our presentation this Saturday for the Iowa City Book Festival, or listen to an archived interview with Special Collections Librarian Greg Prickman on Talk of Iowa.
