Abstract

This first session, led by Dorothy Porter, Curator of Digital Research Services at the Schoenberg Institute for Manuscript Studies, will consist of an overview of digital collation resources and how they can be utilized when studying the codex and its foliation. Dorothy will demonstrate how her project, VisColl, works to help better understand the composition of codices, moving into a workshop where participants can use the project and familiarize themselves with how it works and how it could apply to their research.
