Abstract

This chapter charts and interrogates the tasks involved in constructing digital resources and interpreting the results they present. Considering one digital resource – the Reading Experience Database – as an example within the larger movement towards the digitisation of historical sources, the authors argue that better understanding of the complex processes involved in the organisation of data is necessary if historians and other users are to make the most of the plethora of digital resources now available to them.
