The field of digital humanities has transformed the ways in which researchers look at manuscripts and letters: online editions are now accompanied by rich metadata, which facilitates research; digitised images mean that users can zoom in on details that previously needed good eyesight and a magnifying glass; and crowdsourcing ensures that collaborative work not only involves academics working amongst themselves, but that it also inclusively embraces the knowledge and the enthusiasm of members of the general public.
