The James Catalogue was digitized then marked up following the TEI P5 Guidelines. The customized model was provided by Giuliano Di Bacco, stored in an ODD file (parkerweb.xml): the latter was written by GDB using ROMA vers. 2.x, with manual adaptations. The ODD file is used as a source to compile the actual schema used to validate the xml: it is advisable to compile it in RelaxNG sintax (parkerweb.rnc) through ROMA.

On f. 8v a Note by Thomas Baker applying to the Liber privilegiorum, known as “Hare's book” , in the Registry:
Hic liber continet Collectiones Tho. Markaunt Antiquarii peritissimi et inter nostros primi.
Hunc librum per incuriam et custodum negligentiam longo spatio amissum, et in partibus longinquis existentem, fecit Mag. Robertus Hare ad Universitatem Cantebrigiensem restitui a.d. 1594.
Hic Liber bis amissus erat et toties restitutus ac juxta Fullerum tertio amissus nulla aut spe levi restitutionis. Ego tamen rimando archiva nostra feliciter inveni, nec tam amissum puto quam turpiter neglectum aut nomine carentem minus observatum. Tho. Baker Coll. Jo. Soc.
