The NorKorr-team has been collecting publications about Norwegian letters, letter writing as a cultural practice, letter collections, editions of letters as well as articles and guidelines on how to scholarly edit and encode letters, postcards, telegrams, etc. in a Zotero group library.
We are open for collaboration, which means if you are working on Norwegian correspondences or letters or a related subject and you want to make full use of our library (e.g. the collected pdfs, links, and other materials in full text), you can join the group. You will need a Zotero user profile for this (you can get one here, it doesn’t cost anything and Zotero takes good care of your data).
If you are using the resources in the NorKorr group library, we would appreciate if you credit us:
Hilde Bøe and Ellen Wiger represented the project and presented our poster “Norwegian Correspondences and Linked Open Data” at the poster session. We also submitted a paper, this is now available at CEUR.
The correspondence has been included in the CorrespSearch web service. The CMIF file we sent to CorrespSearch was made using metadata already stored in the XML file (TEI P5) containing the digital edition.
Quick update: We had been discussing starting with a project management system for NorKorr. I’ve started today by creating two so-called “projects” in the repository, one dedicated to the upcoming conference of the Digital Humanities in the Nordic Countries in March 2019 in Copenhagen DHN2019 and one handling the Phase I tasks that are roughly outlined in the project description.
This is still pretty much a testing phase for project management. I have never actively used project management tools before and will give this a try. It is also my first time as a project lead of a project that involves more than two people. We shall see whether this works in our favor and if it generally supports the progress and tasks in NorKorr.
For the time being, I recommend the team members check the status of the projects regularly and file issues with specific tasks that can be integrated into the project board. And since it’s smart, it’ll move to “Done” automatically when the “Issue” is resolved!
