Digital Media Technology
Group Project

As was the case in the first research seminar, this group assignment concentrates on bibliographic data exported from the Short Title Catalogue of the Netherlands (STCN). The data have been captured in a relational database. For each book, you can find information about authors, the full title, the date of publication, the subjects, the language of the publication. Using this information, you can try to answer a number of questions about the history of specific publishing companies: The questions above are only meant get you started; if you want to focus on other questions in this seminar, this is of course encouraged.

The full database can be queried in MySQL.

During the hackathon, the three teams may choose to concentrate on different groups of printers:

Team 1

Team 2

Team 3
