Meagan Ayer (PhD University of Buffalo '13) is putting the finishing touches on our new version of Allen & Greenough's New Latin Grammar (sample). Kaylin Bednarz (Dickinson '15) spent about 8 hours per week in AY '13-'14 editing the XML provided by Perseus, doing a fresh scan of the pages, digitizing the index (which was absent from the Perseus XML), and creating new html pages that combine a nice visual presentation, a link to the XML, and a page image. Meagan is editing those html pages. Ryan  Burke created the menus. After the html is done, the plan is to put it into Drupal to facilitate linking from our notes fields.

Bret Mulligan, Assoc. Prof. of Classics at Haverford College and editor of the DCC edition of Nepos' Life of Hannibal, is busy with his students improving the Nepos site. In the introduction there is a newly reorganized page called vocabulary, text, and maps, which consolidates the wonderful resources that Bret has created. More to come on that front.

Chris Francese and Ryan Burke created a new metadata scheme for image assets on the site which will make images much for organized and findable (sample). Based on VRA Core, it imitates some museum sites, such as the Walters Gallery, but is adapted to our needs. In its current look it has a tab for descriptive information "properties," as well as a tab for scholarly discussions, "annotations." These latter will include both the professionally written descriptions from museum web sites we borrow from, and our own annotations that relate the particular image to a particualr text on our site. And there is an easy linking feature to texts, so you can see what texts are relevant to a particular image.

Open Access Monograph Series: IBAES: Internet-Beiträge zur Ägyptologie und Sudanarchäologie

IBAES: Internet-Beiträge zur Ägyptologie und Sudanarchäologie
Die IBAES wurden 1998 als erste deutschsprachige ägyptologisch-sudanarchäologische Reihe gegründet, die im Internet veröffentlicht wird. Herausgeber sind Martin Fitzenreiter, Steffen Kirchner und Olaf Kriseleit. IBAES-Bände erscheinen unregelmäßig, aber möglichst kurzfristig nach Manuskripteingang.

IBAES soll eine zeitgemäße Form wissenschaftlichen Publizierens in der Altertumskunde sein. Ziel ist es, in möglichst kurzer Zeit und zu geringen Kosten Forschungsergebnisse aus der Ägyptologie, der Sudanarchäologie und benachbarten Fächern zu publizieren. Im Internet publizierte Ansichten und Daten sind außerdem mit verhältnismäßig geringem Aufwand überall reproduzierbar, was für traditionelle Publikationen aufgrund ihrer Verwahrung in Bibliotheken nicht immer zutrifft.

Die Publikationsform in IBAES orientiert sich an der in Printmedien. Die Referenz-Version des jeweiligen Textes ist im Format PDF (Portable Document Formate) in einem traditionellen Layout abgespeichert. Diese Version enthält Seitenzahlen, Abbildungen, Fußnoten und Literaturverzeichnisse wie in Printmedien üblich und kann nicht nachträglich verändert werden. Zusätzlich können Hilfsmittel eingefügt werden, die nur in elektronischen Medien möglich sind, wie die Verknüpfung von Textstellen mit Abbildungen, Einträgen in Belegtabellen oder mit anderen Websites. Außerdem können Texte oder Zusammenfassungen in HTML-Versionen abgespeichert werden, was einen schnellen Überblick im Browser ermöglicht.

Die im Format PDF abgespeicherte Version ist die Referenz-Version der Publikation, auf die in jedem Fall zu verweisen ist. Textversionen in HTML, Ausdrucke auf Papier oder Abspeicherungen auf anderen Speichermedien (Diskette, CD etc.) sind nur Kopien, denen nicht der Rang der Originalpublikation zukommt. Die Herausgeber bürgen dafür, daß an der Referenz-Version keine späteren Veränderungen vorgenommen werden, so daß die hier niedergelegten Daten Dokumentencharakter besitzen.
Volumes I-XIV are available online

    Méditerranée
    eISSN: 1760-8538
    La revue Méditerranée a été créée en 1960 par Hildebert Isnard, directeur de l’institut de géographie de la faculté des lettres d’Aix-en-Provence avec l’appui de Jules Blache, recteur de l’université et Gaston Berger, directeur de l’enseignement supérieur au ministère de l’éducation nationale. Les objectifs sont définis dans la préface de J. Blache du premier numéro de 1960. Il s’agit de publier les études géographiques émanant des universités et des chercheurs aixois et de l’ensemble de la Méditerranée, de multiplier les relations avec les chercheurs des universités méditerranéennes. La revue a été conçue dès le départ comme une revue internationale et fédératrice avec pour ambition d’être un trait d’union scientifique entre les diverses rives de la Méditerranée comme en témoigne son comité de patronage en 1960 et actuellement son conseil scientifique.

    The Journal of the Evangelical Theological Society
    ISSN: 0360-8808
    http://www.etsjets.org/files/graphics/Logos/JETS_Logo.jpg

    The Journal of the Evangelical Theological Society commenced publication in 1958 as the Bulletin of the Evangelical Theological Society. The first issue was just 20 pages in length and contained only one article. But that article by Ned B. Stonehouse of Westminster Theological Seminary, was titled "The Infallibility of Scripture and Evangelical Progress." It was Stonehouse's presidential address to the society. Only 47 persons were in attendance at the Annual Meeting when Stonehouse gave his address.

    From that small beginning, under the editorship of Steven Barabas of Wheaton College, the journal has grown remarkably in size, and the contributions are recognized worldwide for their penetrating scholarship and insightful handling of the Scriptures. BETS became JETS in 1969 with volume 12. When JETS celebrated its 25th anniversary in 1982 under the editorship of Ronald Youngblood, each issue was 128 pages in length. During 2007, the readers of JETS receive the four handsome gold colored issues of the 50th anniversary volume, each of which contains 224 pages of astute refereed articles and scholarly reviews. Dr. Andreas Köstenberger now serves as the editor.

    Nearly all past issues of JETS is now available on our web site for our readers' use and enjoyment. Our search engine, nearly complete, allows researchers to find items of interest quickly and easily. More than 4,000 copies of JETS are printed and distributed each quarter, and the journal goes into every part of the world bringing advanced scholarly writing from a conservative Bible-believing position that holds the Bible to be the verbally inspired and inerrant Word of God.

    The Florida State University Digital Library: Cuneiform Tablet Collection
    While excavating in Babylonia (present-day Iraq) for the University of Chicago in 1903-1904, archeologist Dr. Edgar J. Banks (1866 –1945) acquired a magnificent collection of ancient inscribed Babylonian clay tablets which illustrate the oldest of writings. They are mostly temple records and business documents dating from over 4000 years ago.

    In 1922, Dr. Josiah Bethea Game (1869-1935) negotiated the purchase of twenty-five tablets for the Florida State College for Women (FSCW). The tablets range in size from one to two square inches, and are square, rounded and cone shaped.

    Among the cuneiform artifacts are a ritual tablet from Warka dated 2100 BC; a memorandum from Senkereh, the ancient Larsa, 22 BC; a temple record, sealed with the royal seal of the King of Ur of the Chaldees, 2350 BC; sundried business contract, 220 BC; sundried exercise tablet, 2200 BC; butchers bill for four sheep, 2150 BC; a votive cone, King of Amanu, from the temple of the goddess Ishtar, which he built in the royal residence of his kingdom 2100 BC; a tax bill, 2350 BC; and a business contract dated in Nebuchadnezzar’s reign.

    This selection of our cuneiform collection was digitized and translated as part of a project in 2008

    Al Mashriq - The Levant: Cultural Riches from the Countries of the Eastern Mediterranean
    http://almashriq.hiof.no/sys/almashriq-cover-arwad-2.gif
    Al-Mashriq is a non-political, non-secterian, non-commercial webserver. Any opinions expressed are those of the authors and in no way reflect the views of the maintainer of the server. Its purpose is to gather information that reflects the culture and ways of life of Lebanon and the Levant and was started as guide and entry point to the life and history of the region for the benefit of expatriates of the Levant.
    Al-Mashriq is a repository for cultural multimedia information from the Levant (Al-Mashriq) in general and Lebanon in particular. As of October 2010 it contains over 245000 documents and is still growing. It was started as an initiative by Berthe Choueiry (now associate professor at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln) and myself in 1993 and was for a while an ftp-server at the Ecole Polytechnic Federal de Lausanne. It was moved in 1994 to become a World-Wide Web server at the Østfold University College, Halden (Norway) where it now resides and is maintained by myself and an occasional team of students.
    Contributions that fall within the scope of the server are received with gratitude. Material must contain correct bibliographic references to source and must not be in violation of copyright. The editors of Al-Mashriq retain the sole right to accept or refuse material.

    Institut des Sources Chrétiennes : base de données des auteurs patristiques
    http://www.sources-chretiennes.mom.fr/img/accueil/couv9069g_260.jpg
    Base de données éditée par l’Institut des Sources Chrétiennes (HISOMA - UMR 5189).

    Cette base recense
    tous les auteurs anciens édités dans la collection Sources Chrétiennes ou susceptibles de l’être : il s’agit essentiellement de Pères de l’Église. Elle est régulièrement alimentée par tous les membres de l’équipe Sources Chrétiennes au fur et à mesure de la gestion des projets éditoriaux ; elle peut l’être également par toute personne désireuse d’enrichir la page d’un auteur qu’elle connaît bien. Elle permet de connaître de façon fine le contenu des volumes déjà parus, de ceux en cours de préparation, mais elle a aussi une finalité prospective, puisqu’elle indique les textes que Sources Chrétiennes souhaiterait éditer dans les années à venir et pour lesquels l’Institut cherche des collaborateurs.
    Vous y trouverez notamment :

    -
     des informations sur l’état d’avancement des éditions, sur les colloques ou journées d’étude consacrés aux Pères
    - des éléments biographiques et bibliographiques, des liens vers des sites dédiés.

    Ride: A review journal for digital editions and resources
    http://ride.i-d-e.de/wp-content/uploads/logo-ide-crop1.png
    RIDE is a review journal dedicated to digital editions and resources. RIDE aims to direct attention to digital editions and to provide a forum in which expert peers criticise and discuss the efforts of digital editors in order to improve current practices and advance future developments. It will do so by asking its reviewers to pay attention not only to the traditional virtues and vices of any edition, but also to the progressing methodology and its technical implications. Read more about RIDE in our editorial.
