Survey about digital editions of correspondence

Do you use digital editions of correspondence in your research?

Our very own Naomi Billingsley and her colleague Lisa Gee are part of a team at the Fitzwilliam Museum, Cambridge, developing a pilot digital edition of ‘Most Sacred Things’: the correspondence of William Hayley (1745-1820).

They want to ensure that the edition provides the functionality that researchers want and need.

So, they’d love you to tell them what that is, and would really appreciate it if you’d spare 10 mins to complete their survey.

The survey will close on 1 November.

Alternatively, if you’d prefer to chat, please email Lisa:lg579[at]

Please do pass on to friends and colleagues!


And if you’re interested in digital editions of eighteenth century letters… 

Naomi and Lisa are putting together a panel on this topic at BSECS. Please get in touch with Naomi by Friday 11 October if you are interested in joining them: naomi.billingsley[at]

    I’d encourage everyone who is working with digital collections to take part.
