Best Practices for Archiving Digital Productions

Abstract

In this contribution to the roundtable, Creating and Keeping Medieval Scholarship: A Consideration of Digital and Traditional Methods, I argue from a library and information science perspective that Laura Morreale’s Digital Documentation Process provides a collaborative means for curating digital scholarship data while also preserving representations of those projects. This paper discusses its application to Lynn Ramey’s digital edition of Jean Bodel’s Les Congés and suggests minor improvements to the process.
