The EServer (founded in 1990 at Carnegie Mellon as the English Server), attempts to provide an alternative niche for quality work, particularly writings in the arts and humanities. Based at Iowa State University, it offers fifty collections (representing over 35,000 works) on such diverse topics as art, architecture, race, Internet studies, sexuality, drama, design, multimedia, and current social issues. In addition to short and longer written works, it publishes hypertext and streaming audio and video recordings. Members upload new works to publish in the collections; new members learn how to publish works to the two million readers who visit our site per month.
