    I am developing an online database of the visual culture of the Spanish masterpiece Celestina (1499). At the moment, everything is in Spanish, but a programmer is helping me to develop the English version (we are using Omeka).  I am trying to strike a balance between scholarly thoroughness and accessibility for the average users since there are materials in the database that can be used by stage directors, plastics artists, etc., not only by scholars.  So far, most of the input I have received came from the scholarly use, and they tend to be very conservative in their opinions, putting most emphasis on the bibliographic aspects of the database.

    I would appreciate any input regarding this issue from people interested in visual studies per se. Please have a look at the project at
