The Electronic Literature Organization (ELO) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization established in 1999 to promote and facilitate the writing, publishing, and reading of electronic literature. Since its formation, the Electronic Literature Organization has worked to assist writers and publishers in bringing their literary works to a wider, global readership and to provide them with the infrastructure necessary to reach one another. Since 2006 the ELO has been housed at the Maryland Institute for Technology in the Humanities (MITH) at the University of Maryland.
This collection of archived web sites consists of works of electronic literature: works with important literary aspects that take advantage of the capabilities and contexts provided by the stand-alone or networked computer. The collection features sites that aggregate works of electronic literature by multiple authors, such as online journals and anthologies.
