The first publication of Inscriptions of Roman Tripolitania, which appeared in 1952, has long been out of print. Produced in post-war conditions, it only included illustrations of a few inscriptions, although very many of them had been photographed; and it only offered limited geographic information.

==Description==
  
The purposes of this enhanced reissue are, therefore, to make the original material available again, and to provide the full photographic record, together with geographical data linking the inscriptions to maps and gazetteers, and so to other resources. Electronic publication makes this possible, and also allows us to offer greater functionality, such as free text searches. We have included the material from the supplement which contained further texts, numbered in the same sequence (973-996): 'Inscriptions of Roman Tripolitania: a supplement', published in PBSR 23 (1955), 124-147, and we have incorporated corrections and emendations made in that article; but we have not attempted to alter or emend any item otherwise.

For the epigraphic editions, IRT employs the same formats, software and tooling as IAph2007 and IRCyr, with the addition of Atom feeds containing geographical information in the form of links to the Pleiades Project. The texts will be released under a Creative Commons license, as were the previous publications. IRT2009 was published in September 2009.

Description

From the project website (accessed 2014-07-15):

This online publication is an enhanced electronic reissue, published in 2009, of The Inscriptions of Roman Tripolitania, by J. M. Reynolds and J. B. Ward-Perkins in collaboration with Salvatore Aurigemma, Renato Bartoccini, Giacomo Caputo, Richard Goodchild and Pietro Romanelli, Published for the British School at Rome in 1952. Inscriptions of Roman Tripolitania 2009 was prepared by Gabriel Bodard and Charlotte Roueché, with new translations by Joyce Reynolds, maps by Hafed Walda and full illustration from the Ward-Perkins photographic archive of the British School at Rome.

The website includes all introductory material, texts, and discussion from the original publication, with addenda and corrigenda from 1955 completely incorporated; supporting materials including descriptions and historical records are enhanced and expanded for a more general audience. Photographs (previously available only by visiting the library of the British School in Rome) have been included, completely new translations added, and multiple indexes and tables of content generated from the digitally encoded content. (These replace, and should be thought of as an alternative, arguably better, representation to the hand-collated indices of the print edition.)

The edition is enhanced with digital maps (the contents of a geodatabase viewed through Google Maps) and a search engine, both of which were not possible on paper or in the 1950s, and therefore are completely new. The representations of the individual texts also take advantage of the latest techniques in epigraphic encoding (EpiDoc) and rendering (dynamic, multiple views, hyperlinked internal notes and cross-references to other online materials), providing a very different experience from a printed book, much more in-line with what people expect from a publication of this kind in the 21st century.
