The Cather Project partners with the University of Nebraska Press to publish the Willa Cather Scholarly Edition, the major scholarly edition of Cather's work. Each volume contains an extensive apparatus, featuring textual commentary, explanatory notes, and a "Historical Essay" on the genesis of the particular text. As we edit each text (and as far as copyright allows) electronic versions will be made available online. These editions are encoded in Extensible Markup Language (XML) using the standards developed by the Text Encoding Initiative (TEI), these e-texts will be fully searchable, and will provide a further generation of Cather scholars with a major resource. The Cather Scholarly Edition is produced in compliance with the MLA guidelines on scholarly editions.
