Editorial Transformations and Minimal Computing at the Melville Electronic Library

The Melville Electronic Library was established in 2009 after receiving a digital humanities start-up grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities, and then received additional NEH scholarly editions grants until 2017. But when the project had exhausted its grant funding, it still had much editorial work to do, so the editorial team worked with its technical partners to transform the entire project into a static site using minimal computing principles. This seminar will outline the transformations undertaken by the project, and how the minimal approach revealed the affordances of sustainable computing for humanities projects.
