  • An Experimental Online Collaboration and Publication Tool for Scholars

    by tina shah and susan edwards

    Room: Cairo
    Digital Mellini, an experimental online collaboration
    and publication tool for scholars, was
    created in a collaboration between librarians,
    scholars, and web technologists at the Getty
    and the University of Malaga in Spain.
    On the site, scholars compare manuscript
    pages of a 17th-century paintings inventory with
    transcriptions and translations, make connections
    to paintings, and annotate the texts. By sharing
    their annotations with others, scholars engage
    in critical discussion within the text itself. The
    intention is to create a space for scholars to
    collaborate online together, and then produce
    an online publication from the results of the
    collaboration.

    At 9:00am to 9:30am, Friday 18th November
