Cataloging of the PHI online Latin texts

The cataloging of the PHI online Latin texts project, undertaken by Blake Landor in 2012 at the George A. Smathers Libraries, University of Florida, produced a MARC record for each of the Latin texts served  by Classical Latin Texts, a resource prepared by The Packard Humanities Institute. 

Institutions are free to download these records to their online catalogs.  If you want to preview these records, go to UF’s catalog and type “Packard Humanities Institute” in the “anywhere” field. 

The records are public domain with unrestricted downstream use for any purpose. The University of Florida Smathers Libraries welcomes and encourages their re-use. If you wish to have these in your own library catalog you are welcome to upload them.  Please bring this notice to the attention of your librarians.

n.b.:  The Classical Latin Texts Database Records will be permanently available in the George A. Smathers Libraries section of the Institutional Repository at the University of Florida. 

Online Orbis latinus (Großausgabe, 1972)

[First posted in AWOL 13 August 2011. Updated 23 March 2017]

Orbis latinus (Großausgabe, 1972)
Orbis latinus: Titelblatt des ersten Bandes der Großausgabe (1972) 

In seiner fast 150-jährigen Publikationsgeschichte hat sich der Orbis latinus über den Verlauf von vier Auflagen hinweg zum umfassendsten Verzeichnis lateinischer Ortsbezeichnungen von der Antike bis zur Neuzeit entwickelt. Vor allem die von Helmut Plechl (geb. 1920) erarbeitete Großausgabe der 4. Auflage, die in drei Bänden 1972 erschien, vervielfachte den Wortbestand und etablierte das Werk als unverzichtbares Nachschlagewerk für die Geschichtswissenschaft.

Das seit langem vergriffene Werk online bereitzustellen war ein Desideratum der Geschichtswissenschaft, dem durch das freundliche Entgegenkommen der Rechteinhaberin nun entsprochen werden konnt.

Open Access Journal: eTopoi. Journal for Ancient Studies

[First posted in AWOL 23 May 2011. Updated 22 March 2017]

eTopoi. Journal for Ancient Studies
ISSN 2192-2608
eTopoi is a bilingual magazine which is published by the Excellence Cluster Topoi. It is an open access periodical, and all articles are available as PDF documents free of charge. eTopoi provides a forum of exchange between all disciplines in the area of classical and ancient studies, from pre- and early history to Egyptology and Near Eastern studies, to classical archaeology, classical philosophy, linguistics, literary studies, theories of science, and theology, and extending to other disciplines as well.
Envisioned for inclusion in particular are articles dealing with the shaping and transformation of spatial structures and knowledge systems in ancient societies, as well as with perceptions of and reflections on these phenomena. The focus is on innovative forms of interdisciplinary collaboration, including geoscientific-archaeological projects and ones in computational archaeology, in the history of knowledge, and in historical geography. The magazine hence mirrors the orientations of both research institutes, the disciplines they represent, and the networks of partner institutions with which they are affiliated. It is available as a platform to all interested researchers worldwide.

Starting in 2004, the Oriental Institute committed to digitizing all of its publications and making them available online, without charge. The minimum for each volume, old and new, current and forthcoming, will be a Portable Document Format (PDF) version following current resolution standards. New publications appear online at or near the time they appear in print. Older publications will be processed as time and funding permits. Several hundred volumes are now online.
