CALYX Press and Oregon State University Libraries and Press have been awarded a grant of $96,437 from the National Endowment for the Humanities to digitize at-risk literature published through CALYX Press, a local feminist press founded in 1976.

This grant enables important literary works from the last 50 years of the feminist movement to be transformed into openly licensed e-book formats. The project’s goal is to foster wider readership and a renewed interest in the impact of the small independent press on national and international feminist movements. Taking advantage of contemporary e-book technology, the project will digitize and distribute out-of-print texts by authors now central to contemporary feminist literature.

“Feminist presses of the last 50 years, including CALYX Press, have been a fundamental part of the cultural discourse,” says Alicia Bublitz, managing editor of CALYX Press, “and we are dedicated to preserving those voices in a digital world. The work of these presses is disappearing, and maintaining their foundational texts is essential for scholarship, history and art. This project is an acknowledgment of our great debt to these often controversial, always passionate, and incredibly powerful leaders.” 

Dr. Korey Jackson, Gray Family Chair for Innovative Library Services, and Jane Nichols, instruction and emerging technologies librarian, both of OSU Libraries and Press, offered this statement: “We combine CALYX’s independent lens and feminist literary connections with our dedicated infrastructure, forward-thinking personnel, and support for open access. Our hope is to inspire new audiences and foster new readers of feminist literature by making these texts openly available.”

As one of the nation's oldest feminist presses, it has published diverse authors including Julia Alvarez, Chitra Divakaruni, Barbara Kingsolver, Sharon Olds, Linda Hogan, and Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie.

The next library faculty seminar will be held on December 11 at 10 a.m. in the Willamette Rooms on the Valley Library’s third floor. Anne Bahde from the library’s Special Collections and Archives Research Center will present “Reimagining the Archival Finding Aid using Digital Humanities Visualization Techniques.” Hope to see you there. 

Here’s the description of the seminar’s content: Traditional archival finding aids have long been criticized for their usability challenges. This presentation will demonstrate a reimagined model of this genre incorporating network graphs, timelines and maps to encourage and enable exploration of archival collections. Preliminary results of user focus groups and surveys will be presented along with ideas for further enhancements to the archival research experience.
