Dear Colleagues,

The Royal Irish Academy's Foclóir Stairiúil na Gaeilge (Historical
Dictionary of Irish) project has launched the* Historical Corpus of Irish
1600 - 1926* (http://corpus.ria.ie).  This online corpus makes 19 million
words of Irish, from over 3000 printed texts, freely available to read and
search.  Search for a headword (lemma), for a standardised version, or for
an exact match of your search term.  Results are displayed in context along
with historical variations charting the word's evolution.  In addition,
results can be viewed in their original text which can be downloaded in a
variety of useful formats, such as TEI, ebooks, etc..

This publication represents an important milestone in the development of
the Historical Dictionary of Irish.  Please visit http://corpas.ria.ie for
more information.

Best regards,

Niall O'Leary

happening in scientific communication and in research infrastructures.

Umanistica Digitale is a scientific journal targeted at a specific

        Subject: Redesigned eScholarship Site Launches

The Publishing group at the California Digital Library is pleased to announce the launch of a major redesign of the eScholarship repository and publishing platform. 

eScholarship<https://escholarship.org> serves as the Open Access repository for the University of California system, offering tools and services to help UC scholars and researchers openly share the full range of their scholarly work. eScholarship also provides a comprehensive Open Access publishing program, currently publishing over 70 academic journals across academic disciplines.

The eScholarship redesign represents a significant departure from previous technology approaches to the site: the development team has consciously moved away from custom builds and toward more widely adopted, open source technology solutions and strategies used frequently both inside and outside the academic library domain.  Selected highlights include:

*        A server built with Sinatra + Sequel

*        Isomorphic JavaScript via node.js for server-side prerendering

*        A "single-page" application built with React and various plugins

With this release, eScholarship now offers a robust consortial model: a single aggregated repository with custom access layers and a strong brand identity for each of our ten UC campus sub-repositories. The site is designed to meet the WCAG 2.0 AA standard for ADA accessibility, scales automatically for mobile and tablet devices, and features a flexible, modular design throughout the site that allows for multiple content display options and customizable landing pages through a lightweight, extensible and integrated CMS. Post-release, the team will turn its attention to creating a public API.

To learn more, visit the eScholarship redesign forum <http://help.escholarship.org/support/discussions/9000052123>, read about the site's technical infrastructure <https://help.escholarship.org/support/solutions/articles/9000134074-escholarship-technical-infrastructure> at our Help Center, look at our code repository <https://github.com/eScholarship/jschol>, see our feature list <https://help.escholarship.org/support/discussions/topics/9000037642>, or sign up for project updates <http://cdlib.us8.list-manage2.com/subscribe?u=24434714c6556f731c446acf7&id=8a9ad1a72c>.

It is our hope that this new model will be of interest to the community. Please visit the new eScholarship site and feel free to be in touch with any questions and feedback that you may have.
