Explore | The Financial Papers
An early goal of The Washington Papers was to make George Washington’s business and household records accessible. Given the complexity of these documents and the means of publication available at that time, very little was done: Several cash accounts from the ledgers were published in print during the 1980s as part of the Colonial Series of The Papers of George Washington, and others have been published occasionally as standalone documents or used in annotations. As the digital edition of the letterpress volumes moved forward, solutions for the financial papers began to emerge as well. These solutions have continued to evolve in step with exciting and ongoing advances in the field of digital humanities.

Ontologie historischer, deutschsprachiger Berufs- und Amtsbezeichnungen
Berufsbezeichnungen sind eine der häufigsten Angaben von individualspezifischen Quellen. Besonders in den Sozial- und Politikwissenschaften, den Geisteswissenschaften und einigen naturwissenschaftlichen Disziplinen (Sozialtopografie, Medizin, Arbeitsmedizin, Epidemiologie etc.) bieten Berufsbezeichnungen daher einen wichtigen Bezugspunkt sozialstruktureller Analysen. Dazu kommen verschiedene Formen von Berufsklassifikationen zum Einsatz. Sie lassen sich ganz allgemein in drei große Schemata einteilen. Es werden Modelle verwendet, die

(a) Tätigkeitsprofile und Branchen systematisieren, die
(b) Anforderungsniveaus, Bildungs- und Qualifikationsaspekte charakterisieren oder
(c) soziales Prestige und Sozialstrukturen messen (vgl. FDZ Metadatenportal-Klassifikationen 2016).

Digital Prosopography of the Roman Republic | DPRR
The Digital Prosopography of the Roman Republic (DPRR) is the result of a three-year, AHRC-funded project based at the Department of Classics and the Department of Digital Humanities at King’s College London. The primary objective of the project is to facilitate prosopographical research into the elite of the Roman Republic, its structure, scale and changes in composition over time. To that end a comprehensive, searchable database of all known members of the upper strata Roman society has been established, which brings together information about individual careers, office holdings, personal status, life dates and family relationships.

You can also upload your own list of key terms for automated tagging. You can then read a document while checking a range of reference works at the same time, or compare passages in which the same names or keywords appear. Or, you can extract the information you have tagged and use it for further analysis in our visualization platform and other tools.
