A Collaborative Environment for Digital Epigraphy
Epigraphy.info is an international open community pursuing a collaborative environment for digital epigraphy, which facilitates scholarly communication and interaction. We apply FAIR principles to epigraphic information in order to efficiently create, use and share it among researchers, students and enthusiasts around the globe. The Epigraphy.info community works to gather and enhance the many existing epigraphic efforts, and serves as a landing point for digital tools, practices and methodologies for managing collections of inscriptions.
Key concerns include:
- Identification, creation, and dissemination of agreed-upon guidelines, standards, and best practices;
- Preservation, reuse, and update of existing and emerging datasets providing the most up-to-date versions of inscriptions;
- Providing a toolset for searching, analyzing and editing inscriptions and their metadata by both human and machine;
- Services for citation, revision and exchange.
Epigraphy.info will not replace existing digital resources; it intends to be a hub for a fruitful exchange of epigraphic data and digital solutions that will benefit all epigraphers.
The 1st Epigraphy.info workshop took place at the Heidelberg Academy of Sciences and Humanities (21st - 23rd March 2018). It brought together leading experts in the field of digital epigraphy to discuss ideas for the creation of an open collaborative platform for Greek and Latin epigraphy.
The 2nd Epigraphy.info workshop took place in Zadar (14th - 16th December 2018). A preliminary mission statement was defined here.
The 3rd Epigraphy.info workshop took place in Vienna (30th May – 1st June 2019). The mission statement was approved by the community and preliminary working groups were formed to manage the tasks discussed here.
The 4th Epigraphy.info workshop will take place in Hamburg (19th - 21st February 2020). It will be preceded by a TEI/EpiDoc training (17th-19th February 2020).
