Editorial Practices and the Web
An initial progress report on the "Editorial Practices and the Web" project. Scholarly editions of historically significant texts are important in the Humanities. However, expert editorial work is difficult and funding is scarce. Current Web technology can be used to improve the return on investment by making editors' work available more quickly, more fully, and more widely. Additional objects are to avoid duplicative effort among different projects and explore a closer relationship between scholarly editing and library special collections.
