The John Milton Digital Library (JMDL) is an online platform for scholars, researchers, students, professors, and information seekers interested in learning more about John Milton and his works. The JMDL aims to serve as an information and community resource for those wishing to study Milton’s works alongside critical reviews, biographical information, and upcoming and existing exhibitions that may be of interest to those in the field. It is the only digital library of its kind and offers a host of useful and intellectually stimulating content, while giving its users access to the complete works of John Milton, courtesy of the public domain. The JMDL will offer full text PDF downloads of all of Milton’s works, provide biographical information, collaborative online discussion spaces for intelligent conversation, and highlight critical reviews and exhibitions of Milton’s works. A mock digital library has been created and readers are invited to peruse for a better visual representation.
