Open Access Journal: Cuneiform Digital Library Bulletin

[First posted in AWOL 31 August 2009.  Most recently updated 19 January 2015]

Cuneiform Digital Library Bulletin
ISSN: 1540-8760
The Cuneiform Digital Library Bulletin is an electronic journal constituted in conjunction with the organization and work of the Cuneiform Digital Library Initiative to afford contributors to that effort the opportunity to make known to an international community the results of their research into topics related to those of the CDLI. 

The CDLB is a refereed e-journal for Assyriology and is conceived as a sister publication of the Cuneiform Digital Library Journal. While the latter journal seeks substantive contributions dealing with the major themes of the Cuneiform Digital Library Initiative, that is, with text analyses of 4th and 3rd millennium documents (incorporating text, photographs, data, drawings, interpretations), early language, writing, paleography, administrative history, mathematics, metrology, and the technology of modern cuneiform editing are welcome, articles in the Bulletin should be short notes of at most five pages that deal with specific topics, collations, etc., and do not attempt to offer synthetic treatments of complex subjects.

The editorial board of the Cuneiform Digital Library Bulletin consists of representatives from leading universities, research institutions and museums around the world, including the Max Planck Institute for the History of Science, Berlin, the CNRS, Paris, the CSIS, Madrid, the Hermitage, St. Petersburg, the Johns Hopkins University, the University of Michigan, Cornell University, UC Berkeley and UCLA. The Journal is hosted by the Cuneiform Digital Library Initiative, LA/Berlin, and is managed by Robert K. Englund, and maintained by Madeleine Fitzgerald. Without the guidance and support of a number of other people, it is unlikely that the journal would be in its present form. We should mention particularly Judith Winters, chief editor of Internet Archaeology, for her kind permission allowing us to "lift" from her site many of the policy and guideline statements now a part of these pages.

Help sought with Metadata for the Open Patrologia Graeca Online

Help sought with Metadata for the Open Patrologia Graeca Online
[draft -- January 19, 2015]
Gregory Crane
Perseus Project and the Open Philology Project
The University of Leipzig and Tufts University

We are looking for help in preparing metadata for the Patrologia Graeca (PG) component of what we are calling the Open Migne Project, an attempt to make the most useful possible transcripts of the full Patrologia Graeca and Patrologia Latina freely available. Help can consist of proofreading, additional tagging, and checking the volume/column references to the actual PG. In particular, we would welcome seeing this data converted into a dynamic index into online copies of the PG in Archive.org, the HathiTrust, Google Books, or Europeana. For now, we make the working XML metadata document available on an as-is basis.

Nick White (normally at Durham in the UK but at the time at Tufts) trained and ran the Tesseract OCR engine and Bruce Robertson (Mount Allison University, Canada) the OCRopus OCR engine on scans of multiple copies of each volume of the Patrologia Graeca. The resulting OCR runs contain among them a very very high percentage of the correct readings and we will be able to support very useful searching, as well as text mining with this corpus.

To support this larger effort, we are working on Metadata for the collection. We have OCRd and begun editing the core index at columns 13-114 of Cavallera’s 1912 index to the PG (which Roger Pearse cites at http://www.roger-pearse.com/weblog/patrologia-graeca-pg-pdfs/). A working TEI XML transcription, which has begun capturing the data within the print source, is available for inspection at: https://www.dropbox.com/s/mldhu4okpq4i7r8/pg_index2.xml.

This XML file will be used to expand the data in the Perseus Catalog (https://github.com/PerseusDL/catalog_data) and the coverage (as well as the rapidly evolving functionality) of the Perseus Catalog (http://catalog.perseus.org/).

All figures are preliminary and subject to modification (that is one motivation for posting this call for help), but we do not expect that the figures will change much at this point. At present, we have identified 658 authors and 4,287 works. The PG contains extensive introductions, essays, indices etc. and we have tried to separate these out by scanning for keywords (e.g., praefatio, monitum, notitia, index). We estimate that there are 204,129 columns of source text and 21,369 columns of secondary sources, representing roughly 90% and 10% respectively. Since a column in Migne contains about 500 words and since the Greek texts (almost) always have accompanying Latin translations, the PG contains up to 50 million words of Greek text but many authors have extensive Latin notes and in some cases no Greek text. We will have better figures on the amount of Greek when we have analyzed the OCR-generated text for various copies of the PG.

The PG was a vast enterprise that built upon centuries of work and cites c. 180 different editions, with work of Andrea Gallandi (1709-1779), Angelo Mai (1782-1854), François Combefis (1605-1679), Giovanni Domenico Mansi (1692-1769), and Leo Allatius (1586-1669) as the most frequently cited sources.

We have focused on the following tasks. For details of the TEI XML tagging, you can consult the XML file:
  1. We have provided VIAF IDs for many ancient authors and modern editors.
  2. Each author has been given its own ID# in the form of MPG + a 3 digit number.
  3. We have tried to distinguish primary sources from the many secondary sources (commentaries, essays, introductions) that the PG contains.
  4. Each primary source has a work ID of the form MPG + a 4 digit number. Together with the author ID, these allow us to define URNs according to the Canonical Text Services/CITE Architecture.
  5. Secondary sources have an ID of the form SSID + 4 digits. Secondary sources are numbered sequentially through the PG index. The main goal here is to distinguish them from the original source texts.
  6. The 56 editors whose names show up three or more times surrounded by parentheses haves been given a VIAF number and tagged.
  7. The headers for each new author normally contain a date, most commonly the century of main activity recorded as a roman numeral but occasionally as an arabic number date range. We have tried to capture and encode these.
  8. We have scanned for references in the form of “volume, column1-column2.” Where the index leaves out the volume number, we assume that we are still using the last recognized volume.
  9. The index commonly truncates number ranges: e.g., 1235-54 instead of 1235-1254. We have tried to expand the truncated numbers and checked to make sure that the resulting ranges are increasing (e.g., column2 does not occur before column1).

Ma'agarim: The Historical Dictionary of the Hebrew Language

Ma'agarim: The Historical Dictionary of the Hebrew Language

The paramount project of the Academy of the Hebrew Language is the Historical Dictionary; the creation of this enormous and most important enterprise was decided upon shortly after the Academy was established in 1953.

The aim of a historical dictionary is to relate the history of the words of a language by answering questions such as: When did the word first enter the language, and is it still in use? What were the word’s original form and meaning and how did they change over time?

Good answers to such questions require a large database of texts of the different historical language strata, set in a concordance form, i.e. each word is linked to its relevant dictionary-entry.

The Historical Dictionary Project has accumulated texts of all the extant Hebrew compositions from the time of the canonization of the Hebrew Bible until the end of the Geonic period, and large selections of Hebrew literature from the mid-18-th century until the founding of the State of Israel. In recent years medieval compositions have begun to be processed into the database.

After over fifty years of scholarly work done by scores of experts in Hebrew linguistics, literature and other Judaic Studies, there has emerged a unique treasure of scholarly concordances to Hebrew Literature, in the form of the present database offered to the public in this site.

News from Cuneiform Digital Library Notes (CDLN)

We are pleased to announce the publication of several new contributions to the Cuneiform Digital Library Notes (CDLN):

CDLN 2015:001
Klaus Wagensonner, On an alternative way of capturing RTI images with the camera dome

CDLN 2015:002
Strahil V. Panayotov and Kostadin Kissiov, An administrative tablet from Puzriš-Dagān in Plovdiv, Bulgaria

CDLN 2015:003
Klaus Wagensonner, Turning the Laws of Ur-Namma

We would like to take this opportunity to thank all contributors to CDLN for their support and would like to encourage scholars to contribute to the Notes in future as well.

References and bibliographies:
As of now all bibliographical information is drawn directly from a MySQL database. It is therefore not necessary anymore to send fully formatted bibliographies along with submitted contributions. For all references that are included among the latest available bibliographies on KeiBi Online it is possible to save references and export them into the BibTeX format and send this document along. A full bibliography was added on CDLN, which contains all references used in the various contributions. Clicking on a year leads to the respective contribution(s), where the chosen reference is used. Vice versa, each reference list links back to the full bibliography.

As a test run the “Abbreviations for Assyriology” maintained by CDLI:wiki have been imported into the database as well. By hovering over abbreviations in the bibliographies the full form and additional information is given. Further features such as indices of texts mentioned are in preparation.

We do hope that these changes will increase the efficiency of CDLN and are therefore happy to receive contributions for the next publication of Notes on April 1, 2015.

Submitted contributions are preferably made available as text files or in the RTF format. If the contribution contains tables, word or pages documents may be submitted as well. Please note that in order to aid the editing process, please be so kind to provide all images in separate files and not embedded in the submitted documents.

The CDLN, together with its sister publications Cuneiform Digital Library Bulletin (CDLB) and Cuneiform Digital Library Journal (CDLJ), are peer-reviewed publications that offer a persistent web presence under the auspices of the University of California system. As e-journals, the delay between submission and publication is well below that of academic print journals, while the interaction with cuneiform artifacts documented in the CDLI database offers obvious strengths for an interactive discourse. Authors should expect a two to four month interval between submission of a draft text with illustrations and its publication for substantive contributions to the CDLJ, at most two months for those made to the Bulletin, and approximately two weeks for the Notes that are conceived as an online venue for NABU-style communications that can include short philological or lexicographical contributions as well as regular updates of a more substantial nature describing the background or progress of, in particular, web-based research efforts. For submission guidelines including technicalities regarding bibliographical citations etc. please consult the information at <http://cdli.ucla.edu/?q=about-cdln>.

New submissions will appear in preprint status four times a year (January 1, April 1, July 1, and October 1; notices of new submissions will be made to this list) and are clearly marked as such. During the preprint period, authors will be able to make small, non-substantive changes (e.g., typographical errors) to their submissions. After two weeks, these submissions are then archived.

Scholars are encouraged to send contributions to the CDLN at <klaus.wagensonner@orinst.ox.ac.uk>.

Open Access Journal: Hadashot Arkheologiyot - Excavations and Survey in Israel

[First posted in AWOL 23 October 2009. Updated 23 January 2015]

Hadashot Arkheologiyot - Excavations and Survey in Israel
ISSN: 1565-5334
Hadashot Arkheologiyot – Excavations and Surveys in Israel (HA-ESI) has been published in print since 1961 by the Israel Department of Antiquities and Museums (IDAM) and since 1990 by the Israel Antiquities Authority (IAA). The journal contains preliminary reports of excavations and surveys in Israel, as well as final reports of small-scale excavations and surveys; it also publishes archaeological finds recorded during inspection activities. The journal is bilingual, Hebrew and English; reports submitted in English are translated into Hebrew and vice versa.
 The e-journal www.hadashot-esi.org.il is the digital format of HA-ESI, replacing the printed version. The first digital publication of the journal (No. 116, 2004) is a reflection of the last printed volume. From 2005 onward, the journal will be published on-line only – each year will receive a volume number, continuing the numbering of the printed journal (e.g., No. 117 = 2005, No. 118 = 2006, etc.). The e-journal is an unlimited data base of archeological reports, including photographs, maps, plans and pottery figures. The reports can be searched by keywords or by means of an interactive map. The results of both types of searches can be printed.
 The reports submitted to the e-journal will be edited in the same manner as in the printed journal (see Guide to Contributors). They will be published on-line with the completion of their editing and translation, and will be ascribed to a specific issue according to the year of publication (issue no. = year of publication). A final excavation report is marked with as asterix*. Announcements of new publications will appear on the Home Page of the e-journal. Prints of reports are available from the web site for personal and educational use only.

    Open Access Digital Library: Bibliothek Goussen

    Bibliothek Goussen

    The Goussen library collection is a specialist library for oriental church history. It contains prints in Western classical and modern languages, but predominantly prints in oriental languages such as Syrian, Coptic, Ethiopian, Arabic, Armenian and Georgian languages from the 16th to the 20th century (the focus is on the 18th and the 19th century). The former owner Heinrich Goussen (1863 – 1927) collected nearly every print within the language groups that had ever been published about the subject. The collection contains numerous rare or valuable oriental prints. There could hardly a collection be put together as completely as here, not even from the holdings of large European libraries.
