a compendium of resources

I like to create lists and resources and I like to share them. Here’s the master list:

Book history resources: A list of frequently used, open-access resources for studying early modern book history, including catalogs, digital collections, book trade databases, assistance with Latin imprints, information about paper and bindings, and printers manuals. (last updated June 7, 2017)

Digitized First Folios: A catalog of currently available online F1s, with notes on their copy-specific features, interfaces, and downloading and licensing terms. (last updated June 6, 2017)

Early modern digital collections: A list of open-access digital collections of early printed books. (last updated November 30, 2017)

Examples of digitized early printed books: A list of early printed texts that serve as examples of the ways in which digitization affects how we interact with books. Includes 6 different copies of Nuremberg Chronicles, copies of Folger books that exist both in EEBO and the Folger’s digital collection, and other examples showing why digitization is complicated. (last updated June 7, 2017)

Working with Digital Facsimiles: EEBO and ECCO“: A brief(ish) handout helping both with searching and thinking about material features

Search tips for finding digital facsimiles: Some hints for finding images of early printed books (created November 29, 2017)

Digitization suggestion and wishlist: A form for submitting requests for open-access imaging of early printed texts that would otherwise be unavailable and a list of requests submitted so far. (created November 29, 2017)

Digitized copies of the Gutenberg Bible: A spreadsheet, with 25 at last count! (last updated October 17, 2017)

I’ve been making twitter archives of tweets from the Shakespeare Association of America conference since we started using the hashtag #shakeass (all credit on that to Holly Dugan and Stephanie McMurray). Here are the TAGS archives (all credit on that technology to Martin Hawksey): #shakeass13, #shakeass14, #shakeass15, #shakeass16, #shakeass17, and #shakeass18.
