Ulster Poetry Project
The "virtual museum" of Ulster texts, including some in Scots, which was recently set up by the University of Ulster and mentioned by the Blether Region on 27 July, has now gone online. Unfortunately, they seem to be pdfs only at the moment, which is fine for literary critics but of less use to corpus linguists.
Nevertheless, we must applaud Frank Ferguson's hard work in this regard. He has done something of vital interest to Scots in Ulster that the Ulster-Scots Agency failed to do during its first 10 years in existence.
