Conference Proceeding: Footprints: An Experiment in Digital Humanities

As a result of a working group on the history of the Jewish book, four scholars got together and decided that they wanted to take their research to the next level. The result was Footprints - a database on the movement of the Hebrew book through time and space. This session will discuss the many aspects of creating a crowdsourced digital resource from scratch with no technical knowledge or funding, and the many lessons learned along the way.
