Editors' Notes is an open-source, web-based tool for recording, organizing, preserving, and opening access to research notes, built with the needs of documentary editing projects, archives, and library special collections in mind.

Project that work closely with documents—researching, contextualizing, and ordering them—invariably produce massive amounts of thorough research notes which are too often locked away in filing cabinets or the minds of editors and curators, never to be seen by anyone. The Editors' Notes project is a collaboration between the editors of the Stanton-Anthony Papers, the Emma Goldman Papers, the Margaret Sanger Papers, and the Labadie Collection which aims to preserve those research notes in a way that makes them useful to future scholars and interested minds.

This project has been made possible by a generous grant from the Mellon Foundation. For more information, visit this project's page on the Electronic Cultural Atlas Initiative website.
