Digital Corpus of Sanskrit (DCS)

Digital Corpus of Sanskrit (DCS)
The Digital Corpus of Sanskrit (DCS) is a corpus of Sanskrit texts with resolved Sandhis and full morphological and lexical analysis.
The DCS is designed for text-historical research in Sanskrit linguistics and philology. Users can search for lexical units (words) and their collocations in a corpus of about 4.000.000 manually tagged words in 560.000 sentences or text lines.
The DCS offers two main entry points for research:
  1. Words can be retrieved from the dictionary through a simple query or a dictionary page. For each lexical unit contained in the corpus, DCS provides the complete set of occurrences and a statistical evaluation based on historical principles.
  2. The text interface shows all contained texts along with their interlinear lexical and morphological analysis.
Version 2.0., June 2016 - Contact, copyright, disclaimer The DCS is hosted by the Cluster of Excellence Asia and Europe in a Global Context.

Deir el-Medina Database

[First posted in AWOL 2 Jyly 2012, updated 18 March 2019]

Deir el-Medina Database
Deir el-Medina is the modern name of an ancient Egyptian village situated on the west bank of the Nile opposite Luxor, the site of ancient Thebes. The village was inhabited by workmen who were responsible for the construction and decoration of the royal tombs from the New Kingdom. The exploration of Deir el-Medina has yielded a huge quantity of artefacts and texts written on ostraca or papyri, which offer a unique view into the daily life of an ancient Egyptian community. 

The Deir el-Medina Database is meant to be an intermediate presentation of the ongoing research project A Survey of the New Kingdom Non-literary Texts from Deir el-Medina of Leiden University. The database is a search tool enabling the user to retrieve the documents relevant to his/her research activities from the corpus of non-literary texts from Deir el-Medina.

BIBP: La Base d'Information Bibliographique en Patristique

 [First posted in AWOL 29 January 2014, updated 18 March 2019]

BIBP: La Base d'Information Bibliographique en Patristique
[English introduction]
La Base d'Information Bibliographique en Patristique est un système documentaire spécialisé en patristique. Même si la littérature patristique est son principal objet, la BIBP couvre l'ensemble des disciplines étudiant le christianisme patristique. La priorité est désormais donnée à l'information courante des revues scientifiques. 

Le présent site permet d'utiliser les services bibliographiques de la BIBP. Plus de 64 000 notices, issues de plus de 1 750 périodiques, peuvent actuellement être interrogées. L'interrogation en français permet d'accéder à l’information dans toutes les langues de publication. Chacune des langues peut cependant être interrogée directement. Les techniques d’indexation utilisées permettront éventuellement une interrogation universelle dans les principales langues d’indexation. Pour de plus amples renseignements, communiquez avec (Laboratoire BIBP, Faculté de théologie et de sciences religieuses, Université Laval. Québec. Qc. Canada. G1V 0A6).
La réalisation de la BIBP implique une normalisation technique de la nomenclature patristique. Les principaux index de la BIBP sont disponibles en version PDF :
Les services de la BIBP sont gratuits.
Toute collaboration est bienvenue. Une invitation particulière est faite aux auteurs pour l'analyse de leurs propres publications. Contactez le professeur René-Michel Roberge à l'adresse ci-haut mentionnée.
