Description

This workshop will introduce participants to the Mapping Manuscript Migrations project, an international partnership funded by the Trans-Atlantic Platform under Round 4 of the Digging Into Data Challenge and the Institute of Museum and Library Services. The Schoenberg Database of Manuscripts, the Bodleian Library, the Oxford e-Research Centre, the Institut de recherche et d’histoire des textes, and the Semantic Computing Research Group at Aalto University, Helsinki, are utilizing linked data technologies to connect disparate manuscript provenance datasets for the first time. By combining data from the Schoenberg Database of Manuscripts, Bibale, Medium, and the Bodleian Library, researchers can ask and answer new questions regarding the movement of manuscripts across time and place. Workshop attendees will explore this unified body of data, learning skills that will help them become better manuscript provenance researchers. Participants should bring their own laptop to this workshop. Emma Cawlfield
