Technology behind The Letters of 1916 project

The Letters of 1916 project is a crowd-sourcing project and follows a very similar approach as the famous UCL Transcribe Bentham. The website is a based on a number of different technologies. A WordPress blog is used for the homepage, description and project detail pages. For the letter upload, display and transcription functionality Omeka is used with Scripto plugin and MediaWiki at the back-end. The Transcription interface is based on the DIYHistory project of the University of Iowa and uses the Transcription Toolbar from the Transcribe Bentham project. The website was developed and maintained by the team of Trinity College Dublin High Performance Computing, especially Juliusz Filipowski, Paddy Doyle and Dermot Frost, and designed by Karolina Badzmierowska, PhD candidate in the Digital Arts and Humanities at Trinity College Dublin.
