Perhaps it would be good to back up slightly and look at a real critical apparatus first. I’m going to use as my core example a poem by the Roman poet Sextus Propertius.

Hickey URL http://journal.code4lib.org/articles/9607 Issue 26 Publication The Code4Lib Journal ISSN 1940-5758 Date 2014-10-21 Accessed 2014-10-21 21:08:42 Library Catalog Code4Lib Journal Abstract The Virtual International Authority File (OCLC Online Computer Library Center 2013) http://viaf.org is built from dozens of authority files with tens of millions of names in more than 150 million authority and bibliographic records expressed in multiple languages, scripts and formats. One of the main tasks in VIAF is to bring together personal names which may have various dates associated with them, such as birth, death or when they were active. These dates can be quite complicated with ranges, approximations, BCE dates, different scripts, and even different calendars. Analysis of the nearly 400,000 unique date strings in VIAF led us to a parsing technique that relies on only a few basic patterns for them. Our goal is to correctly interpret at least 99% of all the dates we find in each of VIAF’s authority files and to use the dates to facilitate matches between authority records., Python source code for the process described here is available at https://github.com/OCLC-Developer-Network/viaf-dates.

Type Web Page Author Lorenzo D'Alfonso URL http://www.kinikhoyuk.org/index.html Date 2014 Accessed 2014-10-17 18:49:04 Abstract The site of Kınık Höyük lies in the southern fringes of ancient Cappadocia, in the modern province of Niğde. In ancient times Southern Cappadocia represented the main intersection of the roads to the Taurus passes, which connected the Central Anatolian plateau to the Mediterranean Sea and the Northern Levant. Given this strategic position, the region was continuously occupied and traversed since Prehistory, becoming especially crucial to the history of Hittite, Neo-Hittite, Persian, Hellenistic, Roman and Medieval periods. During the Middle Iron Age (9th-8th BCE), believed to be the height of the activity at Kınık Höyük, the settlement was located at the heart of the kingdom of Tuwana, a poorly understood Neo-Hittite polity documented so far by monumental inscriptions in Southern Cappadocia and some references in contemporary Assyrian records. The particular position of Kınık also makes it a potentially attractive stop on modern tourist itineraries. In fact, just to the north are found the most traditional destinations of Cappadocia; e.g. Göreme, Avanos, Üçhisar and the Underground Cities. Despite such a high potential from both a historical and cultural point of view, Southern Cappadocia was still an underexplored region until the 2011, when a joint American, Italian and Turkish excavation project started at Kınık Höyük. In the three years since, the potential of the site has been realized and the team's initial findings have proven very promising for better understanding this crucial region.

With theoretically limitless space, what resources should scholars provide for readers, and how are they to be presented? Many innovative approaches are currently being tried, from treebanking, to hyper-linked vocabulary, automatic grammatical analysis tools, video read-throughs, crowd-sourced commentary, and text visualization. I would like to argue for the importance of two specific elements that have so far not been the focus either of established projects like Perseus Digital Library, or of other emerging modes of digital edition of classical texts: author-specific lexica, and direct linking by humans to grammatical reference works.

Type Web Page Author Chris Weaver URL http://www.cs.ou.edu/~weaver/improvise/ Rights cc-by-sa Accessed 2014-09-19 14:31:05 Abstract Exploratory visualization based on multiple coordinated views is a rapidly growing area of information visualization. Ideally, users would be able to explore their data by switching freely between building and browsing in a flexible, integrated, interactive graphical environment that requires little or no programming skill to use. However, the possibilities for displaying data across multiple views depends on the flexibility of coordination, the expressiveness of graphical encoding, and the ability of users to comprehend the structure of their visualizations as they work. As a result, exploration has been limited in practice to a small fraction of useful visualizations. Improvise is a fully-implemented Java software architecture and user interface that enables users to build and browse highly-coordinated visualizations interactively. By coupling a shared-object coordination model with a declarative visual query language, users gain precise control over how navigation and selection affects the appearance of data across multiple views, using a potentially infinite number of variations on well-known coordination patterns such as synchronized scrolling, overview+detail, brushing, drill-down, and semantic zoom. Improvise has been used to build numerous visualizations for exploring information including election results, particle trajectories, network loads, music collections, the chemical elements, and even the dynamic coordination structure of its own visualizations in situ. This last technique—integrated metavisualization—is unique to Improvise.

EAGLE will thus provide access to the majority of the surviving inscriptions of the Greco-Roman world -- a massive resource and a veritable pillar of European culture, made accessible for the first time to everyone, from the curious to the scholar.

Type Web Page URL http://iiif.io/ Accessed 2014-09-18 19:23:31 Abstract Access to image-based resources is fundamental to research, scholarship and the transmission of cultural knowledge. Digital images are a container for much of the information content in the Web-based delivery of images, books, newspapers, manuscripts, maps, scrolls, single sheet collections, and archival materials. Yet much of the Internet’s image-based resources are locked up in silos, with access restricted to bespoke, locally built applications. A growing community of the world’s leading research libraries and image repositories have embarked on an effort to collaboratively produce an interoperable technology and community framework for image delivery. IIIF (International Image Interoperability Framework) has the following goals: To give scholars an unprecedented level of uniform and rich access to image-based resources hosted around the world. To define a set of common application programming interfaces that support interoperability between image repositories. To develop, cultivate and document shared technologies, such as image servers and web clients, that provide a world-class user experience in viewing, comparing, manipulating and annotating images.

Type Web Page Author Center for Digital Humanities, Saint Louis University URL http://www.slu.edu/x73358.xml Accessed 2014-09-18 14:55:28 Abstract The Center for Digital Humanities is developing and will implement a web-based application called Tradamus. This application will assist scholars in the creation and publication of scholarly digital editions. It builds upon the CDH‘s successful transcription tool, T-PEN. Moreover, this new application is interoperable: it allows users to draw data from existing tools and resources and also expose their own scholarly editions to (future) interoperable applications. Tradamus will assist scholars by providing tools for use in the five main editing methods in use in the scholarly editing of pre-modern texts. It will permit them to create transcriptions on the fly, import existing transcriptions of manuscripts, collate those witnesses, create the apparatus criticus and other apparatus, attach annotation or commentary (and even translations) to the edition, and assist in the proof-reading of the final product. The publishing component will support static e-editions (for both e-readers, web-pages and to assist in peer review of print publications), dynamic web-based editions and serialization of the edition using RDF technologies. Tradamus will ensure that all these tools will conform to current editorial practice though five use cases. Website Title College of Arts and Sciences, Saint Louis University
Type Web Page Author The Interedition Development Group URL http://collatex.net/ Date 2010- Accessed 2014-09-18 14:52:58 Abstract CollateX is a software to read multiple (≥ 2) versions of a text, splitting each version into parts (tokens) to be compared, identify similarities of and differences between the versions (including moved/transposed segments) by aligning tokens, and output the alignment results in a variety of formats for further processing, for instance to support the production of a critical apparatus or the stemmatical analysis of a text's genesis. It resembles software used to compute differences between files (e.g. diff) or tools for sequence alignment which are commonly used in Bioinformatics. While CollateX shares some of the techniques and algorithms with those tools, it mainly aims for a flexible and configurable approach to the problem of finding similarities and differences in texts, sometimes trading computational soundness or complexity for the user's ability to influence results. As such it is primarily designed for use cases in disciplines like Philology or – more specifically – the field of Textual Criticism where the assessment of findings is based on interpretation and therefore can be supported by computational means but is not necessarily computable.
