Workshop to Examine the Digital Needs of Documentary Editors

This proposal seeks [$] to fund a workshop to explore the possibilities of establishing a Center for Scholarly Electronic Documentary Editions (CSEDE). This center will provide the expertise and infrastructure to enable editors and scholars to produce digital editions, either as born-digital products or as conversions from long-standing letterpress editions. Such a center could accomplish a number of different purposes including: cost cutting through economies of scale; relieving scholars and editors of the need to acquire staff and knowledge of electronic tools; and facilitating interoperability between editions. The workshop will bring fifteen-to-seventeen different stakeholders (editors, scholars, university press representatives, and university professors) to the Virginia Foundation for the Humanities in Charlottesville to seek their advice as to how such a center might best work.
