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
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!
