    Abstract:
    Single author works do not properly represent the multifaceted collaboration that goes into a digital humanities project. At the Lazarus Project, a multispectral imaging initiative based out of the University of Rochester, we are experimenting with new modes of collaborative publishing. Furthermore, as a multispectral imaging project, we recover damaged, faded or otherwise illegible texts. As we move damaged manuscripts into the digital realm and process images, the Lazarus Project must address issues of image rights, digital work and intellectual property. This paper examines questions of the collaborative work that underlies digital humanities projects focusing on issues of ownership and credit in newly recovered textual material.
