On 5th August Neel Smith and Chris Blackwell from Holy Cross College and Furman University gave us a presentation on the CTS/CITE Architecture they jointly developed to create comprehensive and searchable digital scholarly editions. Their work allows users to query textual data in the form of canonical citations, thus preserving humanistic tradition within emerging digital publication environments.
The infinite possibilities and flexibility of this architecture make CTS and CITE an ideal publication standard for the Open Philology Project which is currently preparing the infrastructure required to encode and query all the Ancient Greek and Latin content it will make available under its Scaife Digital Library.
For a quick guide on how to install the CTS/CITE Architecture on your machine, check out the instructions our student visitors from Croatia put together whilst in Leipzig. Thank you guys!
