IMHM -Institute of Microfilmed Hebrew Manuscript


"The Is (IMHM) has undertaken the task of collecting microfilm copies of all Hebrew manuscripts extant in public and private collections. Over 70,000 reels, representing more than 90% of known Hebrew manuscripts are available for the use of scholars and interested laymen. The IMHM located in the Jewish National and University Library offers scholars a unique facility to study, compare and collate Hebrew manuscripts found in distant locations on different continents. All the vast printed resources of Hebraica and Judaica are available in the same building. Adjoining the IMHM are the Department of Manuscripts of the JNUL housing 10,000 original MSS and the Hebrew Palaeography Project which is conducting research on the codicology and palaeography of medieval dated Hebrew MSS."

SUDA ON LINE - Byzantine Lexicography


"Certain fundamental sources for the study of the ancient world are currently accessible only to a few specially trained researchers because they have never been provided with a sufficiently convenient interpretive apparatus or, in some cases, even translated into modern languages. The Suda On Line project attacks that inaccessibility by engaging the efforts of scholars world-wide in the translation and annotation of a substantial text that is being made available exclusively through the internet. We have chosen to begin with the Byzantine encyclopedia known as the Suda, a 10th century CE compilation of material on ancient literature, history, and biography. A massive work of about 30,000 entries, and written in sometimes dense Byzantine Greek prose, the Suda is an invaluable source for many details that would otherwise be unknown to us about Greek and Roman antiquity, as well as an important text for the study of Byzantine intellectual history.
Begun in January of 1998, the Suda On Line (SOL) already involves the efforts of over one hundred scholars throughout the world. The goal of the project is to assemble an xml-encoded database, searchable and browsable on the web, with continuously improved annotations, bibliographies and hypertextual links to other electronic resources in addition to the core translation of entries in the Suda...
...But finally, what is the Suda? It is a succession of some thousands of items, their extent varying from a single word to a page or more. In it we find the explanation of a difficult form... or of a rare word... a grammatical point... elucidations of words with several meanings... as well as notes on people, places and institutions and on concepts (kosmos, nous, physis). It is essentially an historical and literary encyclopedia, but it is also a collection of proverbs and a kind of dictionary of quotations. We might say that it is a 'dictionary of conversation' for the use of 'cultured' people: in this respect it is a reflection of the culture and of the ideal of culture for an era."

"This machine, icon.stoa.org, is a dedicated image-server maintained by the Stoa Consortium for the use of scholars who would like to share, on an Open Access basis, their digital photographs and digital videos related to Classics, Classical Archaeology, and the classical tradition. To that end we have installed Gallery image-management software. "With Gallery you can easily create and maintain albums of photos via an intuitive interface. Photo management includes automatic thumbnail creation, image resizing, rotation, ordering, captioning, searching and more. Albums can have read, write and caption permissions per individual authenticated user for an additional level of privacy." The web interface is extremely simple and offers numerous alternative methods for uploading images and videos, including direct exports to Gallery albums from within OS X iPhoto or from a Windows XP album."

GERRITSEN COLLECTION - Women's History Online 1543-1945


"In the late 1800's, Dutch physician and feminist Aletta Jacobs and her husband C.V. Gerritsen began collecting books, pamphlets and periodicals reflecting the revolution of a feminist consciousness and the movement for women's rights. By the time their successors finished their work in 1945, the Gerritsen Collection was the greatest single source for the study of women's history in the world, with materials spanning four centuries and 15 languages...
...Now in Digital Format - Newly Accessible to Researchers to All Levels
Gerritsen Online finally brings this rich resource to the Web, with a search interface so easy to use that even undergraduates can conduct cross-cultural research in depth. Created from the full UMI® microform collection and developed by the Chadwyck-Healey online resources group, it delivers all 2,000,000 page images exactly as they appeared in the original printed works...The Gerritsen curators gathered more than 4,700 publications from continental Europe, the U.S., the United Kingdom, Canada, and New Zealand, dating from 1543-1945. The anti-feminist case is presented as well as the pro-feminist; many other titles present a purely objective record of the condition of women at a given time.
The broad scope of Gerritsen Online allows scholars to trace the evolution of feminism within a single country, as well as the impact of one country's movement on those of the others. In many cases, it also provides easy access to primary sources otherwise available only in a few rare book rooms. Gerritsen Online consists of two segments: the Periodical Series and the Monograph Language Series." (cit.dal web propr. 25/8/2004)




"This database provides you with information on taxonomic groups, geographic-, geologic-, chrono- and lithostratigraphical units, references, and status and repository of animal and plant fossils found in Austria and the surrounding area. Austrofossil includes the following information, underlined sections are searchable:
taxonomic data (generic name including subgenus; species name including subspecies; author(s) of the species name; taxonomic group), geographic and stratigraphic data (geographic unit; geologic unit; chronostratigraphic unit; lithostratigraphic unit), reference (reference; depository).
The chronostratigraphic unit means the geological system. A search of series and/or stages is possible in the text box. The combination of more fields in one search run is possible. At the moment the database includes 50.000 datasets as well as a register of 3954 species published in the Catalogus Fossilium Austriae...
...Austrofossil is based on the evaluation of more than 1180 publications including descriptions or citations of fossils from Austrian (and some Italian, Slovenian and Bavarian localities) as well as the fossils of the twenty numbers of Catalogus Fossilium Austriae. Syntypes (holotypes, paratypes etc.) are marked by STYP.
Austrofossil is supported by the Austrian Academy of Sciences." (cit.dal web propr. 26/8/2004)




"Though John Donne is known to his twenty-first century reader primarily as a poet, it is as a preacher that he reached his highest fame during his lifetime, and for his sermons that he expected to be remembered. From his first extant sermon in April 1615, delivered before Queen Anne when Donne was a newly-minted clergyman, to his famous last sermon Death's Duell , Donne's homiletic work displays a remarkable range of learning and interest. At the heart of Donne's sermons lies an energy of mind that exhorts its audience to attend, to reflect, and even to wrestle with God after the example of Donne himself. Though Donne's seventeenth-century biographer, Izaak Walton, viewed the poet-preacher as a contemporary version of Augustine, a sinner who cast aside his rakish youth and submitted his will to God, the sermons suggest that spiritual anxiety and uncertainty continued to be a hallmark of Donne's religious observance. The sermons sound heights of spiritual rapture as well as plumbing the depths of existential and eschatological doubt. He uses the public pulpit to puzzle over the difficulties of his personal faith, collapsing the space between speaker and audience and giving voice to a multiplicity of experiences. His sentences are marked by a syntactic richness gained from fluency in Latin and Hebrew, and his meditations—far from the plain speech prized by radical religious reformers—are crammed with figuration..."

"Il Discorso sulla dignità dell'uomo di Pico della Mirandola (1463-1494) è considerato il «Manifesto del Rinascimento»...Il Discorso ci parla da un mondo assai diverso dal nostro. Pico non conobbe la Riforma protestante, e non conobbe il Nuovo Mondo, era per certi versi un uomo dell'«Età di mezzo». Aveva conoscenze vastissime, anche linguistiche, ma il suo modo di attingere alle fonti è molto diverso dalla filologia moderna. La lingua del Discorso è il raffinato latino umanistico. Di qui la difficoltà della lettura del Discorso.
Il Progetto-Pico/Pico-Project si offre a tutti come uno strumento integrale di lettura e di interpretazione del testo del Discorso nel suo contesto, dal primo accostamento sino al contatto diretto con il testo originale rappresentato dalla prima edizione a stampa (Bologna 1496) del Discorso, di cui non vi sono manoscritti.
Il supporto elettronico consente un passo ulteriore, oltre la stampa, verso la realizzazione più compiuta di quella istanza anti-esoterica che già indusse il giovane Pico a pubblicare le sue 900 tesi proponendole alla comune discussione.
Anche la comunità di lavoro internazionale, basato sull'Università di Bologna e sulla Brown University, si situa sul prolungamento di questo ideale umanistico, con il suo metodo di lavoro, non basato sullo specialismo, ma sulla cura di tutti gli aspetti dell'edizione da parte di ciascuno degli incaricati di una sezione del testo."

AER Project - Proyecto de Archivos Españoles en Red


"The AER Project (Proyecto de Archivos Españoles en Red, Spanish Archives on the Net) is a worldwide pioneering project whose fundamental purpose is to make the content of Spanish Archives available over the Internet, incorporating both descriptions and digitised images of documents kept in the main Spanish Archives.
The AER project was developed by the Spanish State Archives Bureau of the Ministry of Education, Culture and Sport in response to the need to tackle the challenges to archives presented by new information technologies. The objectives of the AER project are very clear:
1 to provide instant free access to the Spanish Archives for the international research community and members of the general public;
2 to facilitate and promote research work;
3 to bring the Archives closer to members of the public so that they can better defend their rights;
4 to disseminate its high-quality cultural content over the Internet in the Spanish language;
5 to better preserve and disseminate the content of the Archives through digitisation.
AER is giving enormous visibility to the documentary heritage housed in Spanish Archives over the Internet. Of the various ‘memory’ institutions, archives are perhaps the least well represented on the Internet and the least likely to make use of the new possibilities offered by Internet technology. Archives must accept new challenges, play a more active role in the dissemination of information, and respond to ever more demanding and qualified user demands. The AER platform makes standardised pre-existing State Archive databases available over the Internet and links archival descriptions to a digital image of the document. AER provides instant, free access to over 15 million images of documents and descriptions from anywhere in the world, 24 hours a day." (cit.dal web propr. 16/9/2004)

"La mancanza di un dizionaro inverso con tutti i lemmi dell’italiano moderno è inspiegabile – soprattutto se si tiene conto del fatto che il lessico della nostra lingua, rispetto alle altre europee, è ‘catalogato’ in un numero invidiabile di dizionari e la maggior parte di questi è corredata di CD [12].
E dopo queste premesse eccovi la novità: sfruttando le potenzialità di Culturitalia, che già mette a disposizione ca. 100.000 pagine ricercabili di letteratura italiana (V. LiberLiber / Progetto Manuzio) nonché le registrazioni dei commenti a tutta la Divina Commedia (V. Lectura Dantis Turicensis), è ora in linea il maggior DIZIONARIO ITALIANO INVERSO di cui disponga l’italianistica: esso conta 123.291 lemmi tratti, eliminando le polisemie, dai 129.432 del De Mauro [13].

RAMBI - The Index of Articles on Jewish Studies
"...is a selective bibliography of articles in the various fields of Jewish studies and in the study of Eretz Israel. Material listed in Rambi is compiled from thousands of periodicals and from collections of articles - in Hebrew, Yiddish, and European languages- mainly from the holdings of the Jewish National and University Library, a world center for research on the Jewish people and Eretz Israel. The main criterion for inclusion in the bibliography is that the article be based on scientific research, or contain important information for such research. Since the inception of this bibliographic project in 1966, the editorial board has striven to include in it all of the important articles published throughout the world in the field of Judaica. Therefore, it includes offprints of articles from journals or collections not on order to the Library. Rambi also lists articles from secondary sources...
...A typical record contains the following information: author(s); article title; abbreviated source name; citation (volume, issue, year, pages); narrow and broad subject classifications; full source name, including place of publication; year of publication; language of article. Every record in the Rambi database contains two distinct subject classification fields: a general classification field (e.g. Bible; Diaspora; Philosophy), and specific subject headings (e.g. Genesis: 1; USA: education; Maimonides: Moreh Nevukhim). Attempts are made to utilize the two fields in tandem to provide maximum subject descriptions of the articles." (cit.dal web propr. 23/8/2004)

"The Paleobiology Database is a public resource for the scientific community. It has been organized and operated by a multi-disciplinary, multi-institutional, international group of paleobiological researchers. Its purpose is to provide global, collection-based occurrence and taxonomic data for marine and terrestrial animals and plants of any geological age, as well as web-based software for statistical analysis of the data...The Database currently includes six main tables: references, taxonomic names, taxonomic opinions, primary collection data, taxonomic occurrences, and reidentifications of occurrences. The tables are tied together relationally with record ID numbers. Most tables are relatively simple; the collection table has many fields that are described on a separate database structure page. We are working to add tables that will handle taxonomic authority information and taxonomic opinions (e.g., synonymies). At a later date we will add tables to handle phylogenetic relationships, ecomorphological attributes, stratigraphic sections, radioisotopic age estimates, and other data."

CRITICAL READING - An introduction to literary theory and criticism
"This guide attempts to introduce literary theory and criticism to an undergraduate or otherwise uninitiated audience. As an introduction, what I offer is admittedly reductive. The issues, concepts, and practices are far more complex than I can describe here (and I continue to learn, too). I assume that readers are keenly aware that they should read primary texts as well as the critical commentary I cannot provide here. My experience tells me that one just needs to take a step in any direction. My goal is not to provide in-depth coverage; instead, I want to offer a framework that will help readers use different theories and reading practices while also inviting them to learn more. Each page is divided into three main sections that attempt to answer three questions suggested by David Richter's anthology Falling Into Theory:
Why Do We Read?
What Do We Read?
How Do We Read?
You will also find some writing suggestions that accompany each reading strategy as well as outside resources." (cit.dal web propr. 31/8/2004)

"I Parchi Letterari® è il nome del progetto nazionale ideato da Stanislao Nievo e gestito da alcuni anni dalla Fondazione Ippolito Nievo. Il progetto è patrocinato dall’Unesco. I Parchi Letterari® sono i luoghi dell’ispirazione di grandi autori della letteratura italiana, luoghi ancora oggi esistenti e visitabili. La rilettura di un territorio, attraverso l’opera di poeti e scrittori, consente infatti di scoprire veri e propri itinerari culturali da conservare e tutelare.
I Parchi Letterari®, celebrando nel modo più suggestivo il rapporto fra uomo e natura, divengono occasione per una crescita economica che nasce da spunti antichi e innovativi allo stesso tempo. La memoria dei luoghi diviene sviluppo e si proietta nel futuro. Le comunità locali, rafforzate così nell’identità e nell’orgoglio hanno l’opportunità di promuovere nuove attività economiche legate al turismo, all’ambiente ed ai beni culturali. I giovani, in particolare, coniugando tradizione e innovazione, vocazione naturale e spirito imprenditoriale, possono diventare i protagonisti di uno sviluppo compatibile, diffuso e diversificato.
Eventi speciali, teatro, visite, accoglienza, eno-gastronomia, artigianato, questi ed altri motivi che scaturiscono dalle idee più creative, sono gli elementi di economia applicati alla cultura, le basi sulle quali costruire imprese innovative." (cit.dal web propr. 31/8/2004)

"Throughout the world, wherever Jews have lived, they have spoken and/or written differently from the non-Jews around them. Their languages have differed by as little as a few embedded Hebrew words or by as much as a highly variant grammar. A good deal of research has been devoted to a number of Jewish languages, including Yiddish, Judeo-Spanish, Judeo-Arabic, Judeo-Italian, Jewish English, and Jewish Neo-Aramaic. This website displays information about several Jewish languages, as well as about some of the researchers who have written about them. The Jewish Language Research Website has three goals:
-To serve as a resource for the field of Jewish linguistics - the study of Jewish languages on an individual and comparative basis - encouraging collaboration among scholars of various Jewish languages
-To provide information and bibliographic references for linguists and Jewish studies scholars who wish to incorporate Jewish languages into their research
-To provide an introduction to Jewish languages for the general public."  (cit. dal web propr. 16/9/04)

"On this site you will find the British Library’s 93 copies of the 21 plays by Shakespeare printed in quarto before the theatres were closed in 1642. Why are the quartos important? None of Shakespeare’s manuscripts survive, so the printed texts of his plays are our only source for what he originally wrote. The quarto editions are the texts closest to Shakespeare’s time. Some are thought to preserve either his working drafts (his foul papers) or his fair copies. Others are thought to record versions remembered by actors who performed the plays, providing information about staging practices in Shakespeare’s day."  (cit. dal web propr. 16/9/04)

"Con la aplicación de metodología de la Geografía Lingüística se ha conseguido realizar un estudio completo de Extremadura para extraer conclusiones válidas sobre la distribución de las variedades léxicas, la repartición de isoglosas fonéticas o la propia naturaleza de las hablas extremeñas.
La investigación se ha llevado a cabo en 58 localidades (30 pertenecientes a la provincia de Cáceres y 28 a la de Badajoz) de acuerdo con un cuestionario de 567 preguntas.
La tesis se articula en cuatro volúmenes estructurados de la siguiente forma: en el primero se ofrece una introducción al marco geográfico, histórico, folclórico y lingüistico de la región donde se desarrolló el trabajo, así como los aspectos metodológicos más destacados (red de puntos, cuestionario, informantes, encuesta, transcripción fonética, etc.) y un apartado de anexos (cuestionario de preguntas, cuestionarios de Ahigal y La Codosera, y cuadernos de formas). En los volúmenes segundo y tercero se recoge la cartografia propiamente dicha; consta de 418 mapas lingüisticos y etnográficos, a los que se añaden láminas de información adicional, dibujos y fotografías. El cuarto volumen es un estudio de los mapas que integran la muestra cartográfica; se completa con un epílogo sobre la naturaleza de las hablas extremeñas y una selección de textos populares de los municipios visitados.
Las conclusiones de la investigación se organizan en varios bloques: rasgos fonéticos del extremeño, áreas léxicas del dominio lingüístico y fuentes del vocabulario popular de Extremadura." (cit. dal web propr. 16/9/04)

ODLIS - Online Dictionary for Library and Information Science
"ODLIS is designed to be a hypertext reference resource for library and information science professionals, university students and faculty, and users of all types of libraries. The primary criterion for including a term is whether a librarian or other information professional might reasonably be expected to encounter it at some point in his (or her) professional career, or be required to know its meaning in the course of executing his or her duties and responsibilities as a librarian. A newly coined term is added when, in the author's judgment, it seems likely to become a permanent addition to the lexicon of library and information science. Since the author's professional training occurred in the United States, the dictionary reflects North American practice. However, because the dictionary was first developed as an online resource available worldwide, with an e-mail contact address for feedback, users from many countries have contributed to its growth, often suggesting additional terms and commenting on existing definitions. Expansion of the dictionary is an ongoing process.
Broad in scope, ODLIS includes not only the terminology of the various specializations within library science and information studies but also the vocabulary of publishing, printing, binding, the book trade, graphic arts, book history, literature, bibliography, telecommunications, and computer science when, in the author's judgment, a definition might prove helpful to librarians and information specialists in their work. Entries are descriptive, with examples provided in boldface when appropriate. The definitions of terms used in Anglo-American Cataloging Rules follow AACR2 closely and are therefore intended to be prescriptive. The dictionary includes some slang terms and idioms, and a few obsolete terms, often as See references to the term in current use. When the meaning of a term varies according to the field in which it is used, priority is given to the definition that applies within the field with which it is most closely associated. Definitions unrelated to library and information science are generally omitted. As a rule, definition is given under an acronym only when the full term is rarely used. Alphabetization is letter-by-letter. The authority for spelling and hyphenation is Webster's New World Dictionary of the American Language (College Edition).

Babelteka - Biblioteca pubblica distribuita
"Un progetto ancora in fase sperimentale è stato lanciato per riproporre anche in Italia quel Distributed Library Project che da molti mesi si va affermando negli Stati Uniti. Un progetto teso alla condivisione di opere tra utenti. Il sottotitolo, Biblioteca pubblica distribuita, dice già molto del singolare funzionamento di Babelteka, strumento che consente, a chi partecipa, da un lato di porre in condivisione la lista delle opere musicali, audiovisive o letterarie di cui dispone e dall'altro di chiedere in prestito ad altri utenti un'opera di proprio interesse...Sul piano pratico, il funzionamento di Babelteka è piuttosto semplice. Quando si individua nella lista di un utente un'opera di proprio interesse lo si segnala attraverso il sito al proprietario dell'opera. Se questi può e vuole prestare l'opera, può mettersi in contatto diretto con il richiedente e predisporre le modalità di consegna dell'opera in prestito. Dopodiché il proprietario indica su Babelteka l'avvenuto prestito e il periodo di durata del prestito stesso: a quel punto sulla lista delle opere quel titolo verrà segnato come non disponibile."  (cit. da: Punto informatico)

High-tech tool saves archaeological treasures
"Gli scienziati dell'Idaho National Engineering and Environmental Laboratory (INEEL) del Dipartimento dell'Energia degli Stati Uniti hanno sviluppato un sistema geografico informatizzato che sfrutta i dati provenienti da diverse fonti per aiutare gli archeologi a individuare e a tracciare le mappe dei siti. Il sistema potrebbe far risparmiare agli archeologi molto tempo, denaro e fatica." (cit. da: Le Scienze on line)

New Readings
"New Readings is a scholarly, peer-reviewed, electronic journal from the University of Cardiff, which is devoted primarily to nineteenth and twentieth century European history, literature and cultural studies. Based upon the work of a research seminar founded in 1995 in Cardiff's School of European Studies, the journal makes available online a selection of contributions by postgraduates and new lecturers in the fields of French, German, Italian and Spanish."

Strumenti, tecniche e suggerimenti per la ricerca

Se non trovo con i grandi motori
Può capitare di aver scandagliato la rete con i principali strumenti di ricerca e non aver trovato ciò che si cerca: magari perchè è una cosa molto particolare, legata ad un territorio e di cui non sappiamo nemmeno bene la denominazione. Ci sono numerosissimi motori di ricerca e portali a specializzazione territoriale che varrebbe la bena di adoperare in questi casi. Big Search Engine Index,  A directory of Search Engines and Directories,  ne elenca centinaia e centinaia suddivisi in 200 nazioni.
