Note

  • Display Note: Abstract: The Susanna Rowson Digital Compendium is designed to pioneer the use of bibliographic data as a core information set for research. It is precisely because bibliographies adhere to specified formats that the data they express can be used for GIS mapping, temporal animations, network visualization, and other digital (and analog) heuristics. Keralis will demonstrate the potential value of reconceiving the bibliography as an information set to drive new work in literary history and history of the book.
