Abstract paper -a:
This paper will investigate the methodology of the creation and preservation of electronic resources for and by medievalists. As funded academic projects producing digital content of use to medievalists multiply, the expectations of these projects and their users are becoming more advanced. Equally, both the use and preservation of legacy data produced only a couple of decades ago are becoming increasingly difficult. This paper examines the results of a pilot study in the migration and enhancement of early drama resources held by the Oxford Text Archive.
