Category Theory and Methods
The Digital Mitford team coordinated a massive effort last fall to complete a burst of coding, in particular to finish up transcriptions of assigned letters and to research and develop new prosopography entries–that is, entries on our lists of Named Entities: people (and fictional characters), organizations, places (and fictional places), books, serial publications, works of […]
Welcome to Greensburg, Digital Mitfordians! We’ve updated our site’s page of training materials for our coding school and editors’ workshops. We’re excited to be orienting over 30 people to the TEI and related coding methods this week!
Greg has discovered a photograph of Mary Russell Mitford in the Reading Central Library Catalog! The photo was taken by Henry Fox Talbot, and is one of a kind of early photo that he invented called a “Talbotype”, roughly contemporary with the daguerrotype. The Talbotype is apparently undated, but it must be from the 1840s or 50s, […]
Here is a colorful, annotated series of powerpoint slides prepared (and recently updated as of 20 May 2018) by Greg Bondar. Greg prepared these from research of TEI coding, our photos of letters from the Reading Central Library (posted with their permission), and information from the canonical reference tome, Alcock and Holland’s The Postmarks of Great Britain and […]
We are calling for participants to join the Digital Mitford: the Mary Russell Mitford Archive, at http://mitford.pitt.edu. If you are interested in learning TEI coding and participating in a large-scale digital archive project now well underway, we are happy to orient you to the project as part of our June workshop series. We are hosting our […]
We’ve updated our workflow for editing the Digital Mitford project, as we discussed in our coding hangout today in Google+. For those of you who could not attend, or those who had wonky network connections, or for anyone who needs to review what we discussed today, I’ve posted all the new information and instructions in […]
