An Interactive, Natural-Language Adventure through Wonderland

Special Collections

The USC Libraries are pleased to introduce two artificial intelligence-powered guides to the stories and characters of Lewis Carroll as well as the Cassady Lewis Carroll Collection. The purpose of the project is to develop inventive means of outreach and experiment with new ways of introducing communities to library collections that otherwise might seem remote or inaccessible.

The libraries invite you to chat with Alice and the Cheshire Cat and ask questions about Lewis Carroll’s imaginative worlds, the Cassady Collection, the Wonderland Award program, and the biographies of Alice Liddell and Charles Dodgson. After spending time with them, please share your thoughts. We'd like to hear from you as we work to help the project grow increasingly helpful and knowledgeable.
