Hey, the more preservation projects the better, I feel; there’s so much to do! I know there’s projects out there, and, of course, I consider Hermetic Library to be one. If you ever wanted to collaborate with me on preserving & presenting the contents of your library or other materials, let me know!
Generally, I’m open to people helping with material that interests them; that they are motivated and curious about themselves. And, I’m especially interested in material that isn’t currently available elsewhere; but there’s a whole lot of important material related to the subject matter of Hermetic Library that could be on the site, that supports and enhances the existing material. I’ve written before about ideas I have for how to help
and that Hermetic Library is seeking others
, and I’ve occasionally posted more specific ideas about research topics
not currently on the site that would be great to explore.
But, there’s plenty of room for people to work on other things they find interesting, and that would improve the site and make more information available to the community, that I haven’t thought of doing, or have time and energy to do myself! I mean, let’s face it, I can only do so much even though I try to do as much as I can!
Over the years I’ve also put ideas out there that I haven’t been able to do much on.
I’d still love to work with people on Occult ’Zine, Journal and Ephemera Preservation
but also, anyone with a library that wants to work on digitally preserving & presenting the contents (presuming out of copyright or proper permissions) …
Also, if you, or someone in your community has a corpus, even if not large, of important esotericist and classicist research and practice in need of a home? Let’s talk about becoming a new Fellow
Keep in mind that “a corpus” could also be just a few documents. Furthermore, the subject matter possible at the library may be broader than you think it is, so new Fellows need not be limited to a particular predetermined or presumed narrow scope.
(I mean, fewer than, say, 5 might not be enough to make a Fellows section per se, but there could also be ways to collect together disparate materials with others into new or existing Forms
But, one of the greatest opportunities for Fellows is to present material of related interest across the town-gown-tau spectrum or thoughts about the existing materials that that isn’t already presented on the site!
