This presentation focuses on The Archaeology of Reading in Early Modern Europe (AOR, www.bookwheel.org), a large-scale, international digital humanities collaboration between between the Centre for Editing Lives and Letter (CELL) at University College London, the Sheridan Libraries and Digital Research and Curation Center at Johns Hopkins University, and Princeton University Library, funded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. The primary scholarly research focus of AOR is the history of reading, specifically examining the marginal notes left in the pages of books owned and annotated by Elizabethan scholars such as John Dee and Gabriel Harvey. However, the adoption of IIIF as has not only shaped the project's online outputs, the representation of our research materials as digital images of early modern printed books, it has also allowed us an opportunity to rethink how scholarly research is shaped by the infrastructures of the digital archive. This paper examines the ways in which both the practicalities and possibilities presented by IIIF have fed back into the research project, shaping methodologies and interpretation in the history of the renaissance.
