Update on the OGLP
|November 9, 2015||Posted by admin under Uncategorized||
On November 19-20, the Center for Hellenic Studies will host a meeting to address the goals of the Open Greek and Latin Project (OGLP) and outline a workflow for libraries to contribute materials. The meeting will be run by Greg Crane, the Editor-in-Chief of Perseus and the Humboldt Professor of Computer Science at the University of Leipzig, who is the head of the OGLP. Project staff as well as librarians from Harvard, Johns Hopkins, Mount Allison, UVA, and Yale will attend.
The major goal of the meeting is to identify practical steps that libraries can undertake to increase the number of available open Greek and Latin texts by using the infrastructure already in place. Additional topics on the agenda include larger scholarly-political discussions and a review of funding options.
The outcomes of the meeting will be shared on this blog in late November.
