Evaluating the Practices and Legacy of the Enlightenment on 19th Century Print Culture | ARTFL Project Research Blog
While the ARTFL Project had built text alignment packages in the past, this system was not built for very large-scale comparisons -- 100,000+ document ranges. As such, we wanted to create a new software package that could retain the strengths of PhiloLine while addressing the problem of scalability. via Pocket

Explore | The Financial Papers
An early goal of The Washington Papers was to make George Washington’s business and household records accessible. Given the complexity of these documents and the means of publication available at that time, very little was done: Several cash accounts from the ledgers were published in print during the 1980s as part of the Colonial Series of The Papers of George Washington, and others have been published occasionally as standalone documents or used in annotations. As the digital edition of the letterpress volumes moved forward, solutions for the financial papers began to emerge as well. These solutions have continued to evolve in step with exciting and ongoing advances in the field of digital humanities.

Scholarly reference works like encyclopediae, glossars, or catalogs function as guides to a scholarly domain and as anchor points and manifestations of scholarly work. On the web of Linked Data, they can take on a key function to interlink resources related to the described concepts. JudaicaLink provides support to publish and interlink existing reference works of the Jewish culture and history as Linked Data. We are currently in the planning phase with several maintainers and publishers of such reference works. Stay tuned for further information.
