The Supernatural Reader facilitates access to resources for community groups, members of the general public, as well as educational (schools, universities, colleges) and governmental institutions, for use in their specific areas of study or educational and outreach programmes. The sources were selected on the basis that they were new to most readers, or hard to locate, and includes poetry, prose, memoirs, songs, newspapers reports, legal records, and contemporary pamphlets. The material has been presented in a readable, annotated, thematically arranged manner.
The project team, comprised of staff members of the University of Ulster and affiliates, was as follows: Dr Andrew Sneddon (principal investigator/researcher/editor); Dr John Privilege (researcher/editor); Dr David Gray (researcher); Rowan Morrey (new media/web design); Tina Macfarlane (research support).
