  • © 2010 by Oxford University Press, Inc. All rights reserved. This article examines the various online materials related to Transcendentalism and assesses the amount of coverage and usefulness the concerned websites possess. It says the best online encyclopedia for general information on Transcendentalism is the Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy as it is peer reviewed and conducts regular updates. While naming a number of websites that are dedicated to either individual writers associated with Transcendentalism or to the movement itself, it also states that since many of these sites are for general users they have limited value for scholars and the researchers interested in utilizing digital material. The article also assesses the coverage the Transcendentalists have got in the web world and states the coverage of other Transcendentalist figures is much less complete than that of Emerson and Thoreau.
