The James Merrill Digital Archive: Channeling the Collaborative Spirit(s)

By Shannon Davis and Joel Minor

Abstract

The James Merrill Digital Archive, comprised of Merrill’s poetry drafts, typescripts, and Ouija board session transcripts, is the result of expertise and input of many collaborators across the Washington University campus. Shannon Davis and Joel Minor will speak on various aspects of the project, including successful cross-campus collaboration, employing student workers to perform high level encoding and exhibit curation, and how Omeka was used to develop the digital archive. - Shannon Davis, Digital Projects Librarian, and Joel Minor, Curator of Rare Books and Manuscriptshttps://openscholarship.wustl.edu/lib_present/1001/thumbnail.jp
