Wednesday Nite @ The Lab
"The Stained Book Project" by Heather Wacha, Information School
Wednesday, April 25, 2018
The Library of Stains project is a pilot study that uses multispectral imaging to gather scientific data from stains found on parchment, paper, and bindings. This provides new ways for researchers, librarians, & the public to approach/access info concerning the makeup of medieval manuscripts and their environment. This talk will trace the project from its beginnings, its conception, the imaging process, data analysis, & a set of results that reveal new info about the stains found in manuscripts.
