The Present and Future of Digital Manuscripts: Access, Pedagogy, Scholarship

October 20 @ 10:00 am - October 21 @ 12:30 pm

—a conference organized by Rebecca Fenning Marschall, Clark Library, UCLA, and Philip S. Palmer, Clark Library, UCLA

Why do we need digitized manuscripts and how might we improve user access to them? How might collaborative infrastructure, discovery platforms, and linked data make it easier to find, view, and connect digitized manuscripts? How can special collections libraries partner with scholars, students, and the general public to enhance metadata and transcriptions of digitized manuscripts? As the culminating event of the Clark’s project to digitize its early modern English bound manuscripts (funded by the CLIR Digitizing Hidden Collections program), the conference will introduce new resources while fostering collaborative discussion about the future of digital manuscripts.
