The Wheaton College Digital History Project has received a Level I Digital Humanities Start-Up grant from the Office of Digital Humanities of the National Endowment of the Humanities. The grant is entitled, “Encoding Financial Records for Historical Research,” and funded
A meeting of historians of eighteenth- and nineteenth-century America, archivists, and technical experts to discuss the development of a module for financial records for the Text Encoding Initiative to allow for additional mark-up and analysis of those records found in manuscript collections.
Many of the records being encoded by the Wheaton College Digital History Project consist of financial records.
