Abstract
“Prozhito” (prozhito.org) is the first online database of private diaries, tied to a chronological line, representing personal narratives from the 19th — 20th centuries in Russian and Ukrainian. “Prozhito“ interface allows user work not only with particular texts but with the whole collection of diary entries, building complex search queries by specifying author’s gender and age, journal types (f.e, war, tourist, dream etc.) and filtering results by exact dates and places of records. In this paper we reflect on our general experience of curating personal writings, including collection and publication techniques, principles of managing different types of diary texts, interacting with the volunteer community and with the owners of diaries.
