These are a series of axioms I've come up with, based on some guiding principles I wrote down when beginning my virtual archive, Minor Works of John Lydgate. I believe that anyone who is working in digital humanities should have a similar set of guidelines -- if not expressly articulated, then floating around in the back of their head. Comments can be added via the Hypothes.is plugin. Simply highlight the section you want to comment on and select "annotate" to add a comment. click again to remove the plugin. One caveat -- you need to have an account to comment, so if you're worried about that please let me know via and I'll explore other options.

I'll be adding to this as time goes on, I work on more projects, and I run into issues. This is meant to be an organic document rather than some sort of totalizing theory of digital humanities work; I may someday write something along those lines, but I doubt people want to hear it from me right now and to be frank I'm not sure many are interested in what I have to say in that regard. For that reason, these are mostly in place to help keep me honest.
