A platform has been provided for shared access to the working notes of historians preparing scholarly editions of historically important documents. This experience provides a basis for exploring how the work of individual humanities scholars might have more impact and how primarily sources could be made more accessible. A closer relationship between personal work environments and library infrastructures could facilitate earlier publication, preservation, and better work practices. My talk draws on experience with the "Editorial Practices and the Web" project and the website.
