CEMROL Collecting Epistolary Metadata of the Republic of Letters

CEMROL for SKILLNET. A Crowdsourcing-platform  to harvest the metadata of letters from printed editions of early modern letters. Skillnet conducts research into the ideal of sharing knowledge within early modern scholarly networks in Europe by applying social network analysis and text mining techniques to the metadata and full-text data of large quantities of manuscript and printed letters from the period 1500-1800. CEMROL was built by Sheean Spoel for the applicant prof. dr. Dirk van Miert.
