From the announcement:
The Tropy team is surveying humanities scholars to identify various academic research practices for the collection and management of archival images. Tropy is a major new RRCHNM initiative led by Sean Takats and Stephen Robertson. Thanks to the generous support of theAndrew W. Mellon Foundation, Tropy will fill a crucial need in the initial phase of the research process: where humanities researchers organize and analyze their vast and rapidly growing personal collections of digital images collected in the archives.
Please help us identify various academic research practices for the collection and management of archival images. We’ll take your responses into account as we build the software.
