Description

Led by Dot Porter and Jessie Dummer from the Schoenberg Institute for Manuscript Studies, this workshop will take a hands-on and thorough approach to methods for accessing and using open data for medieval manuscripts. Using the University of Pennsylvania's OPenn collections (http://openn.library.upenn.edu/) and The Digital Walters (http://thedigitalwalters.org) as resources, this workshop will walk attendees through the process of bulk downloading digital images and metadata, introduce a few methods for processing the data, and provide at least 30 minutes for general discussion and experimentation amongst the workshop attendees. The workshop will be aimed at scholars who have used digital images in their work in the past, and who are interested in expanding their skills to a slightly more advanced level. No programming experience is required or expected.
