Breton songs on popular prints Broadsheets database
The team working on the research, the database and the website is unpaid. It is composed of:
Patrick Malrieu researched the collections, scanned the Broadsheets, typed the data in the database, completed the abstracts and indexed the keywords.
Didier Bécam designed the structure of the database on the Broadsheets and ensures the consistency of the data. He looked after the formatting of the PDF files of the Broadsheets from the original scans. He indexed the place names.
Nolwenn Morvan has developed this website, which is the interface between the database and the user.br/>
