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 1.2 adds 492 events, corrects errors, supplies missing dates and footnotes, and revises two fields. The event type “Separate Deposit” has been renamed “Separate Payment.” The subscription category “Professor” has been renamed “Professor / Teacher,” and three new subscription categories have been added: “Day by Day,” “Free,” and “Reading Room.” See ScoData_events_v1.2_changelog.txt for more information.
