The First World War Digital Archive
Launched on 11th November 2008, the First World War Poetry Digital Archive, which is based at the University of Oxford and funded by the JISC Digitisation Programme, made available to the general public a wide array of archival resources relating to literature of the First World War. Building on the success of Oxford's 'Wilfred Owen Multimedia Digital Archive', and the 'Virtual Seminars for Teaching Literature' project, this multimedia digital archive contains archival resources from other major British poets of the First World War plus images, text, audio and video of primary contextual materials.

Wilfred Owen was editor for six issues from 21 July 1917. He took the chance to publish (anonymously) the first two poems of his own ever to appear in print, Song of Songs and The Next War, as well as two new poems by Siegfried Sassoon, Dreamers and Wirers. Several more poems by Sassoon appeared in the New Series. Edinburgh Napier University Library, in cooperation with the English Faculty at Oxford University, has transcribed these issues.
