Data description & contribution
How the data is collected and organised in the Catalogue
The Catalogue of Digital Editions is continuously updated with new digital editions and the latest information pertaining to the previously processed entries. All of the data is collected in a single comma separated value (.csv) file. Updates to the .csv file are regularly synced with the Catalogue of Digital Editions Web App.
The .csv file contains a header row with numerous fields, each addressing a particular aspect or feature of digital editions. Each digital edition occupies a row in the .csv file and should provide information for all the fields listed in the header row. No cell should be left empty. Having said that, the Catalogue today does contain many empty cells - this is the result of previous developments but efforts are being made to correct the issue.
This repository contains two .csv files:
digEds_cat.csv: this is the complete Catalogue and the file you'll want to download, reuse or contribute to.
institutions_places_enriched.csv: this file collects the coordinates of geographical locations mentioned in the Catalogue for their display in the web application.
