Abstract

This second session, led by Anya Adair, will consist of an overview of digital editing methods and how they can be utilized when studying the rolls and their representation on digital platforms. Anya will demonstrate how her digital project on manuscript rolls helps to better understand how to lead, organize, and implement projects to digitize and edit rolls and fragments, 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.
