Every year the Victorine van Schaickfonds awards articles in the field of library and information. In his prize-winning publication, Cornelis van Lit makes a plea for the emancipated humanities scholar. In other words, the researcher who can independently find and use the digital tools that help him in his research. By publishing both the chapters and the resources of the book Open Access, it is a textbook example of open knowledge sharing. The chapters and resources are available in the corresponding repository.
In the FUSUS project, Cornelis van Lit and Dirk Roorda work together on all the problems that arise when classic Arabic books in printed form are transformed into structured text.
