Description

Led by Dot Porter from the Schoenberg Institute for Manuscript Studies, this workshop will walk attendees through the process of creating a physical collation model, and processing that model in various ways. The Collation Modeler is an online form through which scholars can build a virtual model of a manuscript's collation - indicating numbers of quires and the constitution of those quires (the alpha version of the Collation Modeler is at https://protected-island-3361.herokuapp.com, and an updated version will be posted prior to the workshop). Once the model is generated, it can be processed in a variety of ways, including to generate collation formulae, or to create a virtual representation of the manuscript (see examples posted at http://dorpdev.library.upenn.edu/collation/). The workshop will be of interest to any scholar whose work is in any way connected to the physical construction of a manuscript.
