CERL Internship and Placement Grant 2017

This year, CERL has allocated three 2017 Internship and Placement Grants, to the value of 1,000 Euros each, which allow qualified librarians or scholars to work on CERL projects in CERL libraries, and to be trained on CERL databases, generally for a period of one month. This year, all recipients of the Grant are hosted by the Koninklijke Bibliotheek, the Royal Library of the Netherlands in The Hague.

The KB preserves more than 2,200 incunabula; 900 from the Low Countries. All incunabula are described in the OPAC using OCLC. Descriptions are based on ISTC. All desctiptions contain the ISTC number in a separate field, and the GW number in the bibliographical field together with other bibliographical references. All provenances are researched and described. A number of incunabula were included in the Illustrated ISTC with their keypages.

Ruben Celani (Italy), Judit Kolumban (Rumania) en Maria O'Shea (Ireland), as well as the recipient of the Gerard van Thienen Grant, Lauren Leenders (Netherlands) will expand the existing incunable descriptions (in many case prepared by Gerard van Thienen himself) with data required by MEI (geographical and chronological markers) and provenance information. The team is supervised by Dr Marieke van Delft, Curator Early Printed Collections of the Koninklijke Bibliotheek.
