Description

Parker on the Web, a project to digitize and make available online all of the manuscripts in the Parker Library, Corpus Christi College, Cambridge, launched nearly a decade ago as a subscription-only service. In January 2018, Parker 2.0 made these resources available to all with no fee. The Parker manuscripts are an invaluable resource for scholars working in a variety of fields, and the ongoing goal of the Parker project is to increase access to, and use of, this unique collection worldwide.

While access to high-resolution images for subscribers has facilitated use of these manuscripts, Parker 2.0 represents a leap forward in accessibility and use both in terms of availability to a much wider community of scholars, and in the technologies used that allow for re-use of the manuscript images in a variety of tools and environments.

This session focuses on current work that explores the opening of the collection in the broadest sense.
