This article considers a multiple–layered approach to the digital encoding of manuscript and rare print materials related to the colonial period in Latin America. I explain my adoption of this method, describe its technical implementation, and consider its benefits from editorial and pedagogical standpoints. By way of example, I examine the specific implementation of this model on three projects I have undertaken in collaboration with students at the University of North Florida. In preparing this study, I seek to contribute to emerging conversations about how we understand, practice and teach the ideas and methods that underlie the transmission today of written materials related to colonial Latin America, and more broadly, the Early Modern Iberian world. I aim, as well, to add to efforts to advance the presence of these fields within larger interdisciplinary conversations around editorial theory and practice in a digital age.
