OLAC - Open Language Archives Community


"The Open Language Archives Community, or OLAC, is an international partnership of institutions and individuals who are creating a worldwide virtual library of language resources by: (i) developing consensus on best current practice for the digital archiving of language resources, and (ii) developing a network of interoperating repositories and services for housing and accessing such resources. OLAC was founded at the Workshop on Web-Based Language Documentation and Description, held in Philadelphia in December 2000.
A language resource is any kind of DATA, TOOL or ADVICE pertaining to the documentation, description or analysis of a human language. Texts, recordings, dictionaries, annotations, field notebooks, software, protocols, data models, file formats, newsgroup archives and web indexes are some examples of such resources. OLAC metadata can be used to describe any kind of language resource. Language resources may be digital or non-digital, published or restricted. A language archive is any collection of language resources and their resource descriptions.
The most familiar methods for language resource discovery are mailing lists, web indexes, and the catalogs of archives and publishers. Users of these methods typically experience low precision and recall?one has to wade through many irrelevant resources, and relevant resources are easily overlooked. OLAC seeks to improve that situation by developing an infrasturcture for language resource discovery. A key part of that infrastructure is a metadata set that is specialized for language resource description." (cit. dal web propr. 17/1/05)

"The Projet Volterra is one of the British Academy's Research Projects funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Board and currently based in the History Department of University College London. The «Projet Volterra» was established in honour of the memory of the distinguished Roman Lawyer Edoardo Volterra (1904-1987), whose widow left his substantial and rich collection of Roman law books to the École Française de Rome. The general aims of the Projet Volterra are to promote the study of Roman legislation in its full social, political and legal context. As part of this, the area of Roman imperial legal pronouncements was identified as one in which current scholarship was less than adequately served in terms of Regesten, repertoria and bibliographical aids. Within this field the area of later imperial legislation was felt to be particularly poorly exploited by scholars in general. It was decided that access to the material would be most satisfactorily facilitated by the production of a database in an electronic medium which would act not only as a Regest but also contain the basic texts of imperial legal pronouncements (where the ipsissima verba of the issuer(s) survive) from whatever provenance, be it an epigraphic, papyrological, juristic or literary source, details relating to each text's transmission (including their fate during successive codifications), the texts of ancient scholia upon them and an annotated bibliography of relevant modern scholarly output. While in no sense providing entirely new editions, the text of laws included in the database are critical, including the checking of original manuscript readings where appropriate." (cit. dal web propr. 24/1/05)




"This database, initiated and run by Peter M. Lefferts (School of Music, University of Nebraska--Lincoln), is designed to extend the Thesaurus Musicarum Latinarum and to continue the endeavor of capturing all texts on music theory and aesthetics in electronic form. Texts on Music in English focuses on major treatises written in English, allowing them to be downloaded and browsed. The database will eventually comprise all relevant manuscript and printed materials written in English from the Middle Ages through the seventeenth century. The TME has been designed for quick and easy access in many ways. In the short range, the TME allows scholars to locate and display in a matter of seconds on their personal computers every occurrence of a particular term, a phrase or passage, or a group of terms in close proximity in any text contained in the TME's database. The database can be tailored to each subscriber's interests; any part will run separately (text without graphics, graphics without text, or text and graphics), all or any part may be downloaded to an individual's machine, and all text and graphics can be viewed online."

"For the past three years, the Egyptian Center for Documentation of Cultural and Natural Heritage (CultNat) and IBM have been working to bring the awe-inspiring experience of Egypt to the world through a project known as the Eternal Egypt. With the help of a $2.5 million grant of technology and expertise from IBM, the Eternal Egypt represents a unique partnership to use innovative IBM technologies and services to create an interactive, multimedia experience of Egyptian cultural artifacts, places and history for a global audience.
A little over one year since the 100th anniversary of the Egyptian Museum in Cairo, anyone with access to the internet is now able to enter a three-dimensional reconstruction of Tutankhamun's tomb. The experience is only one small part of Eternal Egypt, which is accessible by handheld digital guides in the Egyptian Museum in Cairo, by cell phone for visitors to the pyramids at Giza or the Luxor Temple in Upper Egypt, or through the Eternal Egypt web site.
The Eternal Egypt web site includes an unprecedented experience of high-resolution images, three-dimensional reconstructions of Egyptian monuments and antiquities, as well as virtually-reconstructed environments, panoramic images, and panoramic views of present-day Egypt captured by robotic cameras located from the top of Karnak Temple to the streets of Old Cairo. An innovative, interactive map and timeline will guide Eternal Egypt visitors through Egypt's cultural heritage, while a "context navigator" presents the complex relationships between objects, places and personalities of Egypt's past in a unique, web-like display."

"Supported by a small grant awarded by the Five Colleges of Ohio Foreign Language and Technology Project, this site focuses on Medieval Women who wrote in Latin and French. The purpos e of the project is to incorporate texts by Medieval women writers into elementary through intermediate Latin or French classes. Since most Latin and French textbooks do not include works by Medieval women or materials related to the Middle Ages, developing primary texts for this particular student audience is innovative. This WEB-based project will include Hrotsvit of Gandersheim, Medieval Latin poems, an excerpt from Itinerarium Egeriae, Christine de Pizan, excerpts from Medieval French and Occitan women writers, an annotated Vulgar Latin Grammar, selected songs of the trobaritz, and Marie de France among other texts. This project will include as much as possible relevant links to various sites, images, audio recordings of music and readings. There will also be study questions and exercises."

"Ancient Greek is a fascinating language both because of its intrinsic beauty and  kaleidoscopic variety of expression and because of its vast literature: even when we exclude the Byzantine period it spans thirteen centuries from Homer (8th century BC) to Nonnos of Panopolis (6th century AD), embracing both the origins of Western philosophy and science and the birth of Christianity. Understanding ancient Greek means being able to delve into the roots of Western civilization and to apply Greek critical thinking to our present day culture.
However, learning as well as teaching ancient Greek remains to some extent a strenuous job demanding much training and discipline. Fortunately, nowadays the Web is offering some relief, as you can see on this web page: here I give a listing of web sites on ancient Greek language and grammar, combined with a description of the contents and a personal appreciation (: excellent, : very good, : good). Apart from being inevitably somewhat subjective, this appreciation is given from a scholarly as well as a didactic point of view. Students should know that some sites contain information that cannot be trusted and are to be consulted for fun and amusement only, whereas others offer unique and accurate tools for the study of the language."

CEDOPAL - Centre de Documentation de Papyrologie Littéraire


Il Centro dell'Università di Liegi ospita  il catalogo dei papiri letterari  Mertens-Pack: oltre 8.000 papiri greci e romani collezionati in trent'anni di cui 6.000 già disponibili.
"Le projet d'informatisation du fichier Mertens-Pack3 a débuté en 1999 et se déroule sous la coordination de Marie-Hélène Marganne, du Centre de Documentation de Papyrologie Littéraire. Sa réalisation est prise en charge par Denis Renard, au Centre Informatique de Philosophie et Lettres (CIPL) de l'Université de Liège. Le but de cette collaboration est de concevoir un logiciel qui permette de stocker et d'exploiter les riches informations réunies depuis une trentaine d'années pour la troisième édition du Catalogue des papyrus littéraires grecs et latins ou Mertens-Pack3...
...Chaque enregistrement Pack se définit entre autres par :
-un numéro de notice unique, qui au moyen d'un système à décimales, respecte la numérotation initiale et l'agencement du Pack2 ;
-une datation (sous la forme d'un intervalle) ;
-la langue (grec, latin, autre) ;
-l'auteur ;
-le titre ;
-le genre (prose/poésie, genre littéraire) ;
-l'orientation des fibres ;
-le réemploi (est-ce un cartonnage de momie ?) ;
-le support (volumen ou codex de papyrus ou de parchemin, tablette enduite de cire, ...) ;
-l'existence d'une reproduction à Liège ou ailleurs ;
-le lieu et les circonstances de la découverte ou de la première mention. (exemples : découverte - Fayoum ; achat - Caire)." (cit. dal web propr. 8/2/05)

"Omniglot is a fascinating Web resource devoted to written language in all its forms. Compiled by a seasoned language learner, the site presents information about over 150 different writing systems. For each system featured, users will find a full illustration a brief history of its origins and usage; details of its notable features; and a list of the languages written in the system. In addition, the site offers a sample text written in each system and useful links to related Web resources. The writing systems are organized on the site according to type, which include abjads (or consonent alphabets) such as Arabic and Hebrew; phonemic alphabets such as Cyrillic, Runic or Gothic; syllabic alphabets (alphasyllabaries or abugidas) such as Tibetan and Thai; syllabaries, such as Hiragana and Katakana (Japanese); and complex writing systems such as Chinese and Vietnamese (Mayan is also included here). An index of all the writing systems and languages featured will allow for easy location of material of interest.
Further features of the site include reasons and tips for learning languages and a list of useful foreign phrases, in an impressive number of different languages (this section also features tongue twisters, idioms, and some humorous suggestions as to what may be a 'useful' phrase). Together with an introduction to multilingual computing (with guidelines for entering accented characters), links to language related sites, and language puzzles submitted by users, this is an excellent, comprehensive and well-presented site that will appeal to anyone with an interest in languages."

" El Portal Luis G. Berlanga de la Biblioteca Virtual Miguel de Cervantes está dedicado a la divulgación e investigación relacionadas con la historia del cine español y tiene como objetivo la edición digital de materiales bibliográficos y gráficos que son puestos libremente a disposición de los investigadores y los aficionados al cine en general.
Dentro de los diferentes apartados, está prevista la elaboración de bibliotecas de autor como las de Rafael Azcona y Luis G. Berlanga que permitan disponer de una amplia información sobre la trayectoria de destacados cineastas españoles. Se recuperarán mediante ediciones digitales revistas históricas como Cinema Universitario, Nuestro cine, Film Ideal..., para que puedan ser consultadas por los especialistas sin ninguna dificultad. Asimismo, pretendemos recopilar todas las tesis doctorales relacionadas con la historia del cine español para que sus resultados puedan ser conocidos y compartidos por quienes realizan trabajos de investigación. También tenemos el objetivo de recuperar mediante ediciones digitales aquellos libros descatalogados que son fundamentales para la historia del cine español y ofrecemos la posibilidad de editar las actas, tanto en internet como en formato CD, de los seminarios y congresos relacionados con dicha temática. Asimismo, consideramos que se debe recurir a la edición digital para aquellas obras que como los catálogos, bibliografías o similares implican la necesidad de una continua revisión en contacto con los especialistas. Por último, ofrecemos nuestro portal a los cineastas y productores para que nos anuncien sus proyectos incluyendo la edición de los guiones y aquellos materiales que permitan un mejor conocimiento de las películas que pretenden realizar."

"Archaeological visualization can be valuable to archaeologists if it includes analytical possibilities and solutions to methodological problems that confront them (e.g., faster data sharing). In this study of methods, non-metric and metric analyses were carried out on images (taken using a digital camera) of 8 two-dimensional views of each of 30 projectile points. Metric analysis included the invention of programs that produce grids as measuring devices that adjust to the length of a centimeter scale in an image. Portability of data and speed of data communication are explored in this project, especially in the creation of this website because the data can be shared very quickly with other archaeologists, and the project can be transferred somewhat easily to a CD-ROM to avoid problems associated with obtaining the information from the internet (e.g., slow connections). Issues associated with the use of these statistically valid results are also discussed." (cit. dal web propr. 24/1/05)

"DDM-Online is an international database of bibliographic records for completed dissertations and new dissertation topics in the fields of musicology, music theory, and ethnomusicology, as well as in related musical, scientific, and humanistic disciplines. Containing more than 12,000 records, including the contents of the earlier printed editions of Doctoral Dissertations in Musicology (still available for sale) and supplements contributed from musicological centers throughout the world, DDM-Online is browsable, just as was possible in the earlier printed editions, but it is also fully searchable by author and or by as many as three simultaneous keywords in any part of the record. The pages of DDM-Online are updated periodically throughout the academic year. Since its opening to the public in September 1996, DDM-Online has responded to more than 4,700,000 searches of its data." (cit. dal web propr. 24/1/05)

"This website presents the current research on the geography of Roman Gaul, in particular on the south-west of the region, by Ralph Mathisen of the University of South Carolina. Locations are listed alphabetically, by ancient Roman province and modern Department, and by site type (such as settlements, sanctuaries, cemeteries, mines and quarries, bridges, aqueducts and roads etc), stages on ancient route maps such as the Antonine Itinerary, the Bordeaux Pilgrim and the Peutinger Table. Full bibliographic citations of the city are also provided. The site is still under construction (though last updated in 2002) and lacks a map of the region which reduces its utility to less experienced learners such as undergraduates, though this resource will benefit more knowledgeable researchers in the field of ancient history and classical archaeology." (cit. da: Humbul  30/1/05)

"A useful collection of Roman laws (Latin texts and translations), with some accompanying commentary and background information, assembled by Alexandr Koptov with the collaboration of Yves Lassard of the Faculty of Law of Grenoble University. The wide range of texts is presented thematically, covering areas such as laws, imperial judgements, senatorial decrees, magisterial edicts, legal judgements, contracts, the Corpus Iuris Civili, and laws relating to non-Romans. The accompanying links to articles in Smith's Classical Dictionary of 1875 are useful but obviously dated and readers will also have to make use of more up-to-date reference material. The project is in progress at the time of writing and translations for many of the texts have yet to be added, so at present this will limit its use to the more experience student or researcher in classics, ancient history and various legal disciplines. The introductions to each section are in French, English and Spanish versions. The bibliography is complemented by an extensive series of links to bibliographic websites, while the links page itself is useful both for Roman law and more general topics relating to the period."

"...Searching the Location Register will enable researchers to access a database which includes all of the 20th-century literary material, combining updated versions of the records published in 1988 with all the new records in the 2003 Supplement.
The Location Register has become established as a standard reference source for the study of English literature. It includes information about the manuscript holdings of repositories of all sizes, from the British Library to small-town museums, and about literary authors of all genres, from major poets to minor science fiction writers and romantic novelists. Marie Corelli and Ruby M. Ayres are included in the same way as Virginia Woolf and Dorothy M. Richardson.
The work on the Supplement covers new accessions to British and Irish repositories from 1988 to 2003, and it is pleasing to report that many institutions have made major extensions to their collections in that period. The research has been conducted from Reading, and funded by charitable and cultural bodies including the Strachey Trust, the British Library, the British Academy, the Arts Council, the Royal Literary Fund, the Newby Trust and the Royal Society of Literature. A new grant from the LASER Foundation will make possible updating and maintenance of the database into the future." (cit. dal web propr. 30/1/05)

ATHENA - Ausgewählte Tools und Hinweise zur EDV- Nutzung in der Altphilologie
Una guida pratica all'uso del computer nella didattica, con particolare attenzione all'insegnamento della lingua greca. Prodotta dal Seminar für Klassische Philologie della Georg-August Universität Göttingen, aiuta a capire come adoperare i programmi per impostare lezioni ed esercizi, sia spiegando l'uso di programmi "normali" tipo Word, sia illustrando programmi creati ad hoc. In tedesco.

Un utilissimo strumento di ricerca per questo fondamentale repertorio bibliografico. E' un vero e proprio motore che permette di interrogare l'indice dei volumi pubblicati (<II.37.3) per parole chiave: consente il troncamento mediante asterisco e l'uso di operatori booleani. Per alcune lingue (italiano, inglese, francese, tedesco) esistono indici alfabetici per autore già predisposti (ma non vengono aggiornati in tempo reale).

"Text World Theory is a cognitive-linguistic model of human discourse processing. Its theoretical origins can be traced to a number of diverse academic disciplines, including cognitive psychology, possible worlds theory, cognitive linguistics and literary theory.
The basic premise of Text World Theory is that human beings process and understand all discourse by constructing mental representations of it in their minds. Text World Theory aims to provide the methodological tools necessary for the systematic examination and discussion of these mental representations, or text worlds
Text World Theory was originally developed by Professor Paul Werth at the University of Amsterdam during the 1980s and 1990s. Werth provided a detailed account of the fundamental workings of the text-world framework in his monograph Text Worlds: Representing Conceptual Space in Discourse, which was published posthumously in 1999.
Werth claimed to have devised a methodological framework capable of accounting for the cognitive processes behind the production and interpretation of all forms of human communication; from telephone conversations to dramatic performance, from church sermons to newspaper reports. These ambitious objectives, coupled with Werth's infectious enthusiasm and inspiring prose, have continued to generate great interest in Text World Theory in the years since their author's death.
Text World Theory in the 21st Century is one of the most dynamic and influential areas of current cognitive study." (cit. dal web propr. 7/2/05)

Loxias - Littératures française et comparée
"La revue Loxias est publiée par le CTEL, Centre Transdisciplinaire d'Epistémologie de la Littérature, qui réunit des chercheurs, des enseignants-chercheurs et des doctorants des Départements de Lettres Modernes, d'Italien, d'Allemand et de Langue d'Oc de la faculté des lettres de Nice. Elle accueille aussi les contributions de spécialistes extérieurs.
Loxias, l' « Oblique », est le surnom d'Apollon à cause de la teneur polysémique de ses oracles. C'est sous le signe de ses rayons obliques que le CTEL place sa revue, puisque c'est obliquement qu'il entend accomplir le passage des frontières, dans la polysémie qu'engendre toute pratique interdisciplinaire.

IV Centenario de Don Quijote de la Mancha (1605-2005)
"En vísperas de la celebración del IV Centenario de Don Quijote de la Mancha (1605-2005), la Fundación Biblioteca Virtual Miguel de Cervantes presenta este portal que aspira a convertirse en punto de encuentro, referencia y comunicación para la comunidad universitaria, cultural y científica del mundo hispánico.
El portal nace con una vocación claramente informativa que combinará con la oferta de distintos contenidos sobre la colosal obra de Cervantes. Las secciones de Actualidad y Actividades ofrecerán, puestas al día de manera constante, cuantas noticias genere la celebración desde las instituciones culturales, académicas y políticas nacionales e internacionales: convocatorias, actividades, cursos, concursos, congresos, representaciones...
El espacio destinado a la publicación de Contenidos brindará, por su parte, una colección de "nuevos documentos" de sentido claramente cervantino y quijotesco, valioso complemento de la ya rica y significativa Biblioteca de Autor que la Biblioteca Virtual Miguel de Cervantes dedica al genial novelista de Alcalá. En la actualidad, es ya posible encontrar un apartado que engloba distintas ediciones facsímiles de versiones a otras lenguas del Quijote, así como enlaces a algunas traducciones electrónicas (la de Edoardo Perino al italiano y la de Thomas Shelton al inglés). Las reproducciones facsímiles que podrán encontrar van desde el alemán al mallorquín (realizada por Ildefonso Rullán, publicada en 1905), pasando por el francés (Cesar Oudin: París, 1614), el catalán (Eduard Tàmaro: Barcelona, 1882) y el inglés (Tobias George Smollett, 1782)...
...En definitiva, se trata de poner a disposición de los usuarios un espacio que aglutine el máximo de información sobre la importante efemérides; información en constante renovación y complementada por documentos acerca de Cervantes y Don Quijote de la Mancha en cuantos formatos nos permitan publicar las nuevas tecnologías. El resultado final, una vez concluida la conmemoración, servirá como banco de documentación imprescindible que, además, ofrecerá provechosos aportes para futuras investigaciones sobre una de las altas cimas, si no la que más, de la Historia de la Literatura."

Celtic Cultural Studies - An interdisciplinary online journal
"Celtic Cultural Studies is an independently published and peer-reviewed interdisciplinary academic journal.  Its aim is to publish papers on diverse subjects relating to all cultures from the Celtic territories and their diasporas, from all historical periods and geographical locations, within a broadly Cultural Studies perspective.  As such, the journal does not limit itself to traditions specifically associated with Celtic languages per se, but embraces consideration of issues in Scottish Studies, Cornish Studies, Irish Studies, and so forth."

e-Keltoi - Journal of Interdisciplinary Celtic Studies
"The Center for Celtic Studies at University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee publishes the electronic journal e-Keltoi: Journal of Interdisciplinary Celtic Studies. The journal is an integral part of the Center's mission to promote and disseminate research and communication related to Celtic cultures, past and present, in the academic arena as well as for the general public. Web resources on Celtic Culture that are content-rich, reliable and current are rare, and are very much in demand. The journal provides free access to cutting-edge, peer-reviewed articles solicited to address specific themes from a range of cross-disciplinary and international perspectives. The goal is to make full use of the electronic medium in a way that cannot be equalled by print journals due to cost or formatting constraints: numerous full-color images per article; video and audio clips; links to other sites embedded in the text; etc. The Celtic world is an especially rich source of graphic images, material culture, and oral as well as performative traditions, all of which can be presented especially effectively in an electronic format."

Beccàti a leggere!
"“Beccàti a leggere!” (Get Caught Reading) è una campagna europea di sensibilizzazione per incoraggiare e sostenere la lettura e la diffusione dei libri principalmente attraverso i mass media e durante eventi ad alto impatto comunicativo. Il grande pubblico dispone, oggi, di molti modi “alternativi” per occupare il tempo libero: lo scopo della campagna è ricordare a tutti quanto possa essere piacevole, invece, passeggiare tra i volumi di una libreria, tenere un libro tra le mani e soprattutto perdersi tra le sue pagine, scoprendo gli innumerevoli viaggi virtuali che esse possono contenere.
Già promosso negli USA, in Canada e in Gran Bretagna, il progetto vuole sottolineare l’aspetto piacevole e quasi ludico della lettura, coinvolgendo personaggi noti dello sport, della politica, del cinema, della musica e dell’economia, fotografati mentre sono intenti a leggere (appunto “Beccati a leggere!”).
L’intera campagna si basa sugli scatti fotografici che verranno diffusi su riviste, quotidiani, televisione, siti internet e ad eventi di varia natura.
Inserito nell’ambito del programma della Commissione Europea Cultura 2000, questo progetto verrà promosso in tutti i Paesi membri dell’UE. L’intenzione dei promotori è di creare una quantità importante di materiale informativo utilizzabile anche dopo il termine della campagna che, vista la semplicità del messaggio veicolato - leggere è divertente e piacevole - può essere eventualmente promossa anche da altri soggetti."

World Archaeological Congress
"The World Archaeological Congress (WAC) is a non-governmental, not-for-profit organization and is the only representative world-wide body of practising archaeologists. WAC seeks to promote interest in the past in all countries, to encourage the development of regionally-based histories and to foster international academic interaction. Its aims are based on the need to recognise the historical and social roles as well as the political context of archaeology, and the need to make archaeological studies relevant to the wider community.
WAC is an international forum for discussion for anyone who is concerned with the study of the past. WAC holds an international Congress every four years to promote: the exchange of results from archaeological research; professional training and public education for disadvantaged nations, groups and communities; the empowerment and support of Indigenous groups and First Nations peoples; and the conservation of archaeological sites.
Previous WAC Congresses have been held in England, Venezuela, India, South Africa and the United States. Patrons for these events have included Prince Charles (WAC-1), Nelson Mandela (WAC-4) and Harriet Fulbright (WAC-5)." (cit. dal web propr. 23/1/05)

Linguistic Politeness Research Group
"This group was established in 1998 in order to bring together scholars working in the area of linguistic politeness.  There are two groups - a wider mailing list group which is informed of conferences, meetings, minutes of meetings and new publications on the subject of linguistic politeness, and a smaller group which meets in one of the Midlands universities once a semester.  This group functions in a number of different ways: 1) as a reading group, we discuss articles and book extracts which relate to the subject of linguistic politeness; 2) we occasionally invite visiting speakers; 3) we jointly work on publications: we have recently published a series of paper on politeness and context in the e-journal series, Working Papers on the Web, vol.3, 2002; 4) we organise conferences - papers from the 2002 Politeness and Power Conference are to be published in a special double issue of Multilingua Volume 23 1&2 2004;  5) members of the group are on the editorial board of the Journal of Politeness Research - a new journal to be launched in January 2005 by Mouton de Gruyter." (cit. dal web propr. 7/2/05)

The Electronic British Library Journal
"The eBLJ is the journal of scholarly research into the contents and history of the British Library and its collections. It is the successor to the British Library Journal, which appeared in twenty-five volumes between 1975 and 1999. It is available free to all users of the BL Website." (cit. dal web propr. 7/2/05)

The Dictionary of the Scots Language
"The Dictionary of the Scots Language (DSL) comprises electronic editions of the two major historical dictionaries of the Scots language: the Dictionary of the Older Scottish Tongue (DOST) and the Scottish National Dictionary (SND). DOST contains information about Scots words in use from the twelfth to the end of the seventeenth centuries (Older Scots); and SND contains information about Scots words in use from the eighteenth century to the present day (modern Scots). These are the most comprehensive dictionaries available for, respectively, Older Scots and modern Scots, and are therefore essential research tools for anyone interested in the history of either Scots or English language, and for historical or literary scholars whose sources are written in Scots or may contain Scots usages." (cit. dal web propr. 7/2/05)

Center for Hellenic Studies
"The Center was founded in 1961 and designed to rediscover, in the words of the founders, the humanism of Hellenic civilization. New initiatives will expand beyond the Washington, DC campus the CHS mission to bring together a variety of research and teaching interests centering on Hellenic civilization.
These initiatives include web-based publications; on-line research and discussion projects; an interactive multitext of Homer; and a collection of Greek tragedy in translation." (cit. dal web propr. 8/2/05)

B-GREEK - The Biblical Greek Mailing List
B-Greek is a mailing list for scholars and students of Biblical Greek. Our main focus is upon understanding the Greek text of the Bible. Discussion topics include scholarly study of the Greek Bible and related Jewish and Christian Greek texts, tools for beginning and advanced students of Biblical Greek such as textbooks, reference works, bibliography and research tools, and linguistic topics such as morphology, lexicography, syntax,and discourse analysis...
..Anyone interested in New Testament Studies is invited to subscribe, but list-members will be assumed to have at least a working knowledge of Biblical Greek.
While "lurkers" are welcome to receive and read list correspondence, posts to the list are expected to pose questions about Biblical Greek, not general questions or opinions about doctrine or the meaning of the English text. Even basic questions are welcome, provided they are really about the meaning of the Greek text. This is not a general discussion list for Biblical matters. While one need not be a Greek scholar to subscribe, one should at least be taking the first serious steps in the study of Biblical Greek." (cit. dal web propr. 8/2/05)

Strumenti, tecniche e suggerimenti per la ricerca

"Yahoo! stà portando a compimento la sua metamorfosi, l'ultima modifica dell'home page è un ulteriore passo avanti. Ormai è realmente difficile determinare la natura di questo sito dall'home page, che assomiglia sempre più ai portali generalisti di una volta, con il campo SEARCH in bella mostra nella parte alta e qualche ultimo frammento di directory nella parte bassa, con 12 piccoli link raccolti in un riquadro di colore neutro. Non solo...a complicare le cose si aggiunge anche l'assoluta somiglianza delle pagine dei risultati con quelle di Google." (fonte: MotoriDiRicerca.IT  30/01/05)
