Playing the MarginsFebruary 12, 2011
Although I spent a long part of my life objecting to any sort of writing in books, my work on the de la Mare Library, which is dependent on his annotations fo much of its methodology, has converted me to the virtues of marginalia. So I am particularly delighted that two of our MA LIS students, Paris O’Donnell and Sian Prosser, have been awarded funding through UCL’s Train and Engage scheme to investigate actors’ and drama students’ use of annotation in their work. From our news page:
Sian and Paris have taken our optional modules on Historical Bibliography and Digital Resources in the Humanities, and they will be using their skills and developing their research interests in these areas through this project. I’m really interested to hear their findings regarding actors’ notetaking, and if / how digital technology like ereaders and tablet PCs have made an impact in that community so far.
