Editorial Practices and the Web
Scholarly editions of historically significant texts are important in the Humanities. However, expert editorial work is difficult and funding is scarce. Current Web technology can be used to improve the return on investment by making editors' work available more quickly, more fully, and more widely. Additional objects are to avoid duplicative effort among different projects and explore a closer relationship between scholarly editing and library special collections.
The Electronic Cultural Atlas Initiative is undertaking a two year collaborative project with the The Emma Goldman Papers Project
Supported by a grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
This project builds on Bringing Lives to Light: Biography in Context
Prototype released August 2012: editorsnotes -- an open-source, web-based tool for recording, organizing, preserving, and opening access to research notes, built with the needs of documentary editing projects, archives, and library special collections in mind.
