Paperbound is a digital repository for photographs of Western European watermarks from c. 1300 to 1550. It is still under construction, but becoming more funcitonal by the day. We are primarily looking for collaboration in the form of submissions of images of watermarks with the pertinent necessary data (the appropriate form can be accessed at http://www.paperbound-watermarks/contribute), but are happy to receive other feedback and suggestions.
In 2012, historians and computer scientists at VU University Amsterdam started a project dealing with an important dataset in the field of history and literary studies: the Short Title Catalogue, Netherlands (STCN). The STCN is a retrospective bibliography compiled by the National Library of the Netherlands and contains descriptions of over 200.000 Dutch publications from the period 1540-1800. These descriptions are disclosed by using the Picarta/OCLC standards.
