The ARTFL Project is pleased to announce a new, full-text version of Pierre Bayle's monumental Dictionnaire historique et critique (5th Edition, 1740). Currently there are two Alpha versions of the database running (see the Project Caveats for more information). We expect several more versions of the database to be available in the coming months after our corrections project is underway. (12/05)
A new ARTFL endeavor for subscribers: The Journal de Trévoux, ou Mémoires pour l'Histoire des Sciences & des Beaux-Arts. Currently, we have the volumes from 1751 to 1757 and hope to release more in the coming year (12/05).
The ARTFL Project has released an open source version of PhiloLogic version 3. This version is a significant rewrite of PhiloLogic v2 and supports many new search and reporting features, including NOT searching and searching on nested text objects (such as letters and speeches). It is known to support very large collections of TEI (Text Encoding Initiative) XML and SGML encoded documents on a number of Linux, Solaris, and Macintosh OS-X platforms. Please consult philologic.uchicago.edu for further details, including a number of demonstration databases, and downloads. We will be rebuilding all ARTFL databases under the new system in the near future (10/05).
The ARTFL Encyclopédie Corrections Project has recently included more than 30,000 hand corrections into the lastest version of the Encyclopédie Database. Currently, 7 volumes of text (vols. 1, 3, 4, 8, 12, 13 & 16) and 1 volume of plate-legend text (vol. 19) have been corrected (5/05).
