Repertoire International de Litterature Musicale (UK operations)

Posted by arts-humanities.net on March 29, 2015

Compilation of bibliographical information and abstracts of all scholarly writings on music published in all formats in the UK. These are sent electronically to RILM head quarters in New York to be added to the international database available by subscription to institutions and individuals. This phase of the project (RILM-UK 1999-2004) has brought the UK coverage of monographs up to date, thereby ensuring that a great part of the strengths and diversity of UK musicology is properly represented within, and made available to, the national and international community.

The Canterbury Tales Project

Posted by arts-humanities.net on March 29, 2015

The Canterbury Tales Project aims to investigate the textual tradition of Geoffrey Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales to achieve a better understanding of the history of its composition and publication before 1500. Here is how we work:

We have established a system of transcription for all the manuscripts and early printed books of the Canterbury Tales into computer-readable form.

We transcribe the manuscripts using this system.

We compare all the manuscripts, creating a record of their agreements and disagreements with a computer collation program (Collate).
