New Frankenstein Archive Debuts for Halloween

I'm still gathering my thoughts after DPLA fest, but I wanted to share some information today about the new Shelley-Godwin Archive, which I'm sure is going to be a great platform for humanities research.

You can read more about the project on the NEH post "Bringing Frankenstein to Life" which also links to press coverage from the New York Times and Washington Post. There's also an extensive article out from The Chronicle of Higher Education.

One of the things that caught my attention was the data model that the Shelley-Godwin archive was built on. SharedCanvas shows the potential for linked data with cultural heritage objects, as it allows users to define an annotated resource along with associated comments. Here are some other implementations of the SharedCanvas model.
