|Abstract:||The Shakespeare and Company Project: Lending Library Events dataset includes information about approximately 35,000 lending library events including membership activities such as subscriptions, renewals and reimbursements and book-related activities such as borrowing and purchasing. For events related to lending library cards that are available as digital surrogates, IIIF links are provided.|
|Description:||All data is related to the Shakespeare and Company bookshop and lending library opened and operated by Sylvia Beach in Paris, 1919–1962. Version 1.1 adds two new fields and 1,290 events. Mistakes have been corrected and missing dates have been added. The two new fields provide the duration of borrowing events in days (when possible) and the source type or types of every event: lending library cards, logbooks, address books. To represent events that have multiple sources, three fields are now multivalued: source_citation, source_manifest, source_image. See ScoData_events_v1.1_changelog.txt for more information.|
