  1. Old Russian Texts and Computer-Controlled Lexicography

    Dietze, Joachim
    Dietze outlines the importance of computer encoding of Old Russian manuscripts for linguistic analysis.

  2. Some Methodological Problems in Describing Old East Slavic Cyrillic Manuscripts and Printed Books

    Mathiesen, Robert
    Mathiesen emphasizes the importance of bibliographical description, particularly of Old Cyrillic manuscripts and printed books. He describes the "individual components of an ideal synchronic description of a codex-form book" into a "formal" part of the description and the "textual" part as a recommendation of the structure of manuscript and old printed book descriptions.

  3. A propos de l'exégèse des manuscrits en Tchécoslovaquie

    Havlikova, Lubomira
    A brief list is given of the repositories in Czechoslovakia that contain manuscripts and any inventories or catalogs of these manuscripts are noted. A selected bibliography of print catalogs is included.

  4. The Mount Athos Manuscripts and their Cataloguing

    Litsas, Efthymios K.
    The libraries within the monastic republic of Mount Athos contain about 14,500 Greek manuscripts at the present day. Taken as a whole they constitute the largest single collection of Greek manuscripts in the world. This enormous body of material, amassed during the course of ten centuries, cannot be properly studied until it is fully and satisfactorily catalogued. Yet, as anybody can see, the cataloguing of so many thousands of codices is a very difficult undertaking. This problem of cataloguing the manuscripts of Mount Athos is in fact a question that merits discussion. The possibility of solving the problem by new...

  5. Definition of Textological Data for Coptic Texts

    Orlandi, Tito
    Orlandi discusses the problems and proposed solutions regarding the computer encoding of Coptic texts. A sample text is provided.

  6. The Old Norse Computer Tape Bank at Copenhagen

    van Arkel-de Leeuw van Weenen, Andrea
    The aim of the Old Norse Computer Tape Bank is to establish a collection of machine readable texts based directly on manuscripts, or on reliable diplomatic editions (of which, however, regrettably few exist). Through standardization of transcribing methods and methods of encoding transcriptions we hope in time to establish a database of Old Norse rather than a mere collection of texts. Polata 17-18: 88.

  7. CIP und ISBN Codes zur Erfassung von Manuskripten?

    Miklas, Heinz
    The article discusses the possible assignment of ISBN or CIP* unique numbers to manuscripts in addition to the manuscript siglum, which is typically composed of the Fond + Ms. number. *(Cataloging in Publication record number issued by the Library of Congress for books that have not yet been published.)

  8. How Much Description Does a Manuscript Need?

    Marti, Roland
    Marti poses the question in his title regarding the amount of description desirable for a manuscript. He compares manuscript descriptions to conventional bibliography, concluding that descriptions are problematic as they are neither "'user-oriented' nor computerised" (Polata 17-18: 76), and offers a solution in "the concept of 'structured expandable manuscript description on two levels' (SEM). The ultimate goal of SEM is to have a complete description of all mss., a description covering all aspects with equal thoroughness. The minimal requirement for the implementation of SEM is a description of the inventory type. The features of SEM allow the description to grow,...

  9. Data for Database as a General Manuscript Index

    Hamer, Richard
    There is an obvious place for a comprehensive "union catalogue" database available to all researchers and covering the main categories of manuscript study. Such a database should complement but in no way be a substitute for more specialised database projects, such as those already in existence or in process of creation, just as none of these should become a substitute for the conventional scholarly manuscript catalogue in book form. This paper contains some thoughts resulting from the author’s own attempt to devise a relational database for use as a general index, whose objects are to facilitate location or listing of manuscripts...

  10. Medium - Conception, réalisation et exploitation d'une base de données

    Guillaumont, Agnes; Minel, Jean-Luc
    In the face of the explosion of material available on millions of microfiche, microfilm, etc., this article briefly summarizes a project of the Institut de recherche et d'histoire des textes in Paris to create a relational database to aid in the study and analysis of manuscripts.

  11. Sharing Codicological Resources through Bibliographic Networks and Utilities

    McCrank, Lawrence J.
    The long established procedures for preparing a manuscript census and distributing information on holdings has been costly, labor intensive, and inefficient. Medievalist are now using computers increasingly to prepare inventories and even more complex descriptions, but they are mechanizing previous manual processes rather than taking full advantage of automation, the recent development of information systems, and of bibliographic utilities and networks. There have been some interesting applications in computer-generated conventional reference tools for access to manuscript resources, which point to the development of interactive data bases capable of access in machine-readable form through established library and archival information systems. The...

  12. Codicography and Computer

    Geurts, A. J.; Gruijs, A.; Veder, William R.; van Krieken, J.
    On 1 August 1980, a research team was formed at the Catholic University (Nijmegen) to create a system for description and cataloguing of manuscripts, the PCC (= Producing Codicological Catalogues with the Aid of Computers) project under the direction of professors Albert Gruijs (Ancillary Historical Disciplines) and Cees Koster (Informatics); at the end of 1981, they were joined by professor William Veder (Slavic Philology). They reviewed all extant methods of manuscript description and cataloguing including all experiences in electronic recording and processing of the relevant data, and decided to create a comprehensive system that would satisfy certain requirements.... At the end...

  13. A Message from Your Editors

    Veder, William R.; Capaldo, Mario
    This "Message from Your Editors" explains that the contents of Polata Knigopisnaia 17-18 are papers presented at a conference "International Data Bases for Medieval Manuscript Studies" at the Catholic University (Katholieke Universiteit), Nijmegen, September 1987. It is also noted that the Catholic University, previously the publishing site of Polata knigopisnaia, "decided in 1987 to end all formal activities in the field of palaeography, codicology and textology, except within the realm of Dutch studies." Revisions to the journal are also discussed.
