Welcome, all, to Mill Marginalia Online! Our earlier in-process site will soon disappear, replaced by this new, functional iteration of our work (millmarginalia.org). Thanks to the indefatigable Tyler Grace and Nadia DelMedico, as well as to the eagle eyes of our advisory board members (with Anna Gibson and Phyllis Weliver deserving special acknowledgement), our private beta site has been tuned, expanded, and beautified into the public web presence you can now see and browse. Although we foresee future refinements to the search function, marginalia categories, and methods of attribution, and we of course anticipate the addition of further data, we are proud to present the first 10,000 examples of marginalia from the John Stuart Mill Library. Those who would like a bit of guidance in using the site are advised to consult the brief “How to Use This Site,” located in the About section. Or you can just click your way in to a virtual visit, and get to know the Mills in a whole new way.
