We are blogging and playing with manuscripts today!
In 2015, a collaboration led by the Philadelphia Area Consortium of Special Collections Libraries (PACSCL) and including 15 institutions was awarded $500K from the Council on Library and Information Resources forthe Bibliotheca Philadelphiensis project, which will digitize and put into the public domain over 400 manuscript codices. This session will celebrate the launch of the project by presenting a variety of papers showcasing the range of collections that will be made available through the BiblioPhilly project.
Have you been working with manuscripts from Philadelphia area collections? Consider submitting a proposal to participate in our session, sponsored by the Schoenberg Institute for Manuscript Studies. Please email a brief abstract to Dot Porter at dorp at upenn dot edu by September 15th for consideration.
