            Digital Palaeography (Hardback)

            Palaeography, both in the narrow sense of the history of handwriting and more broadly as book history and the study of documents and manuscripts as material objects, stands as the foundation of much of medieval studies. However, the palaeographical method has undergone a signific...ant transformation in recent years, due on the one hand to the ever continuing desire for greater rigour, and on the other to the sudden availability of many thousands - if not millions - of digitised manuscripts and relatively powerful desktop computers with which to manipulate them. This book presents an authoritative reflection of the state of the art in the application of ICT to the field of palaeography. Although the focus is on palaeography in the narrow sense of Western European medieval handwriting, some chapters apply to the field more widely and encompass issues such as crowdsourcing, diplomatics, and digital libraries as well as Hebrew and modern manuscripts.

            From his earliest reading memories in wartime Britain through five decades of librarianship, eminent librarian and former ALA President Michael Gorman offers insights from his extraordinary career in this new memoir. Gorman relates his personal and professional journey in prose t...hat is by turns charming, opinionated, and revealing. He mad perhaps his most significant contribution to librarianship as editor of the 1978 Anglo-American Cataloguing Rules, a major development that receives detailed attention here. The debates and arguments that would shape professional practice for years to come are dramatically presented, with a vivid cast of characters including leading librarians from two continents. Broken Pieces, Gorman's account of being on the front lines of many of the most important decisions made in librarianship during his career, is a timely and entertaining read.
