The Fleischmann Diaries

Ed. by Róisín O'Brien, Cork: Cork Open Research Archive 2013. "'Digitising the Diaries of Aloys Fleischmann: a prototype for novices' is a thesis project undertaken by Róisín O’Brien, with the collaboration of the Fleischmann family and under the guidance of practitioners, as part of a Masters in Digital Arts and Humanities at University College Cork (UCC), Ireland. The project involved the digitisation of the 1926 and 1927 diaries of the late German-born Irish composer, Aloys Fleischmann (1910 – 1992). In addition to digital preservation, the aim of the Fleischmann Diaries project was to create a freely available digitisation prototype for scholars and non-practitioners, providing them with a reproducible model. The project focused on digital photography and the online publication of the digitised archive. Future expansion will consist of metadata development, which will transform the site into an enhanced scholarly resource. A supporting dissertation, documenting the technical process and establishing a theoretical basis, is published on the dissertation page of the site." [from resource]

The Diary of William Godwin

Ed. by Victoria Myers, David O'Shaughnessy and Mark Philp, Oxford, Oxford Digital Library, 2010.
"Godwin’s diary consists of 32 octavo notebooks [...] [with entries from] 6 April 1788 [...] [to] 26 March 1836. [...] The diary is a resource of immense importance to researchers of history, politics, literature, and women’s studies. It maps the radical intellectual and political life of the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries, as well as providing extensive evidence on publishing relations, conversational coteries, artistic circles and theatrical production over the same period. One can also trace the developing relationships of one of the most important families in British literature [...] [and m]any of the most important figures in British cultural history feature in its pages.
The diary has been transcribed and encoded so that it is fully searchable. High resolution scanned images of the diary are also provided."
"The project has sought to code the diary so as to retain the richness and diversity of the information. Each element in a day’s entry has been coded so as to distinguish what Godwin read, what he wrote, whom he saw, where he saw them, in what activities or meals they shared, and where he went."

Livingstone's 1871 Field Diary

Project lead by Adrian S. Wisnicki, Los Angeles (CA), UCLA Library, 2011. "Together with the text of the diary, the project [...] make[s] available an exciting and rich array of complementary materials:
- a Livingstone spectral image archive that digitally preserves all the pages of Livingstone’s 1870 and 1871 Field Diaries as high-resolution spectral images with full metadata, and so that allows direct access to all the primary Livingstone data on which this critical edition is based; and
- a webpage that allows comparison between the original 1871 Field Diary, the highly revised 1872 Journal created by Livingstone, and the further revised 1874 book posthumously produced by Livingstone’s friend, Horace Waller;
- critical, textual, and historical essays and notes;
- a detailed project history and archive that chronicles the fascinating journey of Livingstone’s words from the "rediscovery" of the faded diary in 2009 to its publication today as the first significant nineteenth-century British literary manuscript to be enhanced with spectral imaging and processing. The project archive contains over 60 downloadable documents and files produced in the course of the project that collectively provide an intimate and comprehensive look into the production of this critical edition" [from resource]

Schenker Documents Online

Directed by Marilyn Deegan, London, Centre for Computing in the Humanities / King's College London, 2010-. "Schenker Documents Online is a digital edition of three large collections of documents — the voluminous correspondence between Heinrich Schenker and the members of his circle, together with the theorist’s diaries and lessonbooks ; these are supported by additional documents relating to his life, and a set of "profiles" of people, places, and organizations with which he came into contact, the newspapers and journals that he read, and his own works.
SDO does not provide facsimiles; it is thus in no sense a digitization project, nor is it an archive in the strict sense. Rather, it is a scholarly edition, which aims to present near-diplomatic transcriptions of original texts, together with English translations, summaries, supporting commentary, and such interpretation as is necessary to relate these documents to Schenker’s personal development and those of his correspondents.
Because it is digital, it provides direct hyperlinks between documents, facilitating rapid movement from document to document; and it offers the end-user a range of tools with which to search and browse documents, thus facilitating the task of understanding and contextualization." [from resource]
