Supporting source access and improving source availability
Important materials, from obscure publications to unpublished correspondences and notebooks, are as yet inaccessible to the international research community. In many cases, available sources are in languages which are of limited international currency and thus unusable by outside scholars for comparative purposes. SPIN wishes to facilitate the availability and international-comparative usage of these sources and will therefore offer funding for
- – source research to make archival material, or published material in a lesser-used language, available to the international research community, by means of inventories, translations or digests;
- – publishing, in book form or on the web, transnational anthologies and readers of relevant material in English translation or in English digest;
- – digitizing and web-publishing important printed sources.
