Meeting 2006.12.08 Cambridge, UK

The objective of this meeting is to provide practical knowledge about producing a digital collection of paper reproductions. Specifically it will cover the following basic aspects:

  • selecting which papers in a manuscript to reproduce
  • what basic cataloguing data should be provided with each paper image
  • presentation of different reproduction techniques
  • hands-on reproduction with the frontlight-minus-backlight imaging method

This is a pilot project to be conducted first on a selection of Persian mss from the holdings of the Cambridge University Library. Further possibilities to investigate are libraries in Oxford and London.
