The planning committee has identified two related projects that would complement the redesigned ESTC and could be started during the course of the redesign.
1) Browser-based Matching: a Zotero-like tool, users could install this application in their browsers and use it to link digitized works in collections like Google Books to ESTC records. Ben Pauley’s Eighteenth Century Booktracker is a model for this application.
2) Linked Curation Tool: a web-based program that partner projects could install on their sites that would allow researchers to link ESTC bibliographical information to digital objects and curate ESTC data from within the host site. ESTC data could then be shared with the partner projects.
