Description

Dr. Jean Lee Cole’s Aperio project strives to recover the lives and literary voices of members of the Woman’s Literary Club of Baltimore (1890-1941). This presentation will detail the content and process of this ongoing project, from the transcription of Club documents to the questions of access and exclusion they raise to the digital tools used to display the wealth of information recovered thus far. The iterative process resembles an agile methodology, and it is possible that similar long term evolving digital scholarship projects can implement lessons learned from the software development community.
