Digital Fragmentology and the Five Colleges

I’ve mentioned before my work with the Five College Medieval Manuscript Digitization Project. It continues to be exciting (borrowed a librarian’s compact purse mirror the other day to work on transcribing the off-printed text on an old manuscript pastedown). Today though, just a micro-post pointing at the blog of Lisa Fagin Davis, who’s doing the metadata for the project (and, full disclosure, is one of my supervisors). Her latest post is about digitally reconstructing texts, and her case involves one of the Ege leaves that’s held at UMass Amherst! Read all about it at her blog.
