TakeNote: An Exploration of Notetaking in Harvard University Collections
TakeNote is a virtual exhibition of historical notes--and note-like things--found in the collections of 13 Harvard University libraries, curated by leading scholars in the history of the book, and sponsored by the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study. The exhibition itself--available in a grid or sortable view--features downloadable high-resolution images, commenting, and tagging. There is also a selection of interpretive itineraries through the exhibit, written by experts in the field (excepting myself), and a bibliography of links and sources related to notetaking. The project is linked to the Take Note Conference, due to take place at Radcliffe (in Cambridge, Mass.) on Nov. 1st and 2nd.

Some of the exhibit's gems: And, of course, much, much more!
Role: Curator and coordinator

This is so, so cool. I've been fascinated by marginalia and always wanted to start some sort of project related thereto. Mad props.
