Soft Launch of the DLL Catalog

We're doing a "soft launch" of our catalog site over the next several weeks. We've loaded a bunch of author and work authority records, and we'll be adding lots of records of individual items from HathiTrust, the Internet Archive, and other sites in the coming days and weeks. In the meantime, there is a lot of information about the catalog, and you can get a taste of what's to come at https://catalog.digitallatin.org. As always, we welcome your feedback.

Setting up Atom for Editing Texts for the Digital Latin Library

By Andrew Dunning

The Digital Latin Library is opening the doors to publishing your critical editions. The Society for Classical Studies and Mediaeval Academy of America have published their submission process, and one from the Renaissance Society of America is coming soon. For the first time, scholars will be able to publish peer-reviewed editions of primary sources that are universally accessible to both researchers and the general public, including readers with print disabilities.

DLL Seminar Summary

On June 25 and 26, 2015, the DLL convened an international seminar on Latin textual criticism in the digital age on the campus of the University of Oklahoma, in the Peggy V. Helmerich Collaborative Learning Center inside of Bizzell Library.

Participants came from Germany, Italy, Ireland, Canada, and the United States to talk about about various aspects of textual criticism, from technical standards for encoding critical editions to more philosophical papers about what digital critical editions are and/or should be.
