The Center for Literary Computing has a dual mission: we are an instructional support center and a research lab. We serve students and faculty in the English Department, the Eberly College of Arts and Sciences, and West Virginia University. As a Center in a public institution, we also serve the broader community that includes the citizens of West Virginia in all regions of the state.


As a research lab, the Center for Literary Computing supports research projects of the faculty in the English Department, and for other departments in the University at large. Faculty and students use the CLC to develop their projects and/or to demonstrate their projects to visiting scholars and the WVU community. To learn more about current CLC projects, click here.

Instructional Support:

As an instructional support center, we provide a site for students to receive specialized assistance in computing and multimedia technologies. As a lab with a regular schedule of 35-40 open hours each week for walk-in assistance, we also serve students and faculty who need a computer to check email, search the web, write a research paper, scan an image, develop a website, or use video-editing or 3D modeling programs.

Community Component in Research and Instructions

As a part of a public institution, the CLC is committed to the community at large and to community-affiliated projects. The CLC is developing a web site and multimedia archive for the Writing Heritage Project, a Kellogg-funded initiative to record local histories in the Scott's Run area near Morgantown.
