Dear All,

BT Archives have started a New Connections digitisation project partnered with Coventry University and The National Archives in the UK.


New Connections, which will be launched online next year, will cover many aspects of telecommunications history, and will be a portal to hundreds of thousands of documents and images from the BT Archives collections which are currently being scanned.

We’ve set up a survey to assess what people would like to see on the website, and we’re keen to get as much academic input as possible.  It’s a very short survey and there’s £50 of Amazon vouchers up for grabs, so please tell us what you most want to see from the new BT e-Archive and spread the word to as many colleagues as possible.  

The survey is accessed from BT Archives catalogue www.bt.com/archivesonline

Many thanks.

*Corpus Inscriptionum Latinarum: Digital CIL
 http://arachne.uni-koeln.de/drupal/?q=en/node/291 *

** **

This site provides online access to the volumes currently out of copyright
of *Corpus Inscriptionum Latinarum (CIL)*, the corpus of ancient Roman
inscriptions. This digitized version of the *CIL* will initially comprise
the more than 50 parts (vols. I-XVI + auctaria and v. I, editio altera)
published before 1940 and be made accessible in *Arachne*, the central
object database of the German Archaeological Institute and the
Archaeological Institute of the University of Cologne.

** **

The pages of text and inscriptions can be searched via imperfect OCR
recognition.  We hope to make the retrieval of inscription and page numbers
as well as titles more precise as the work progresses. To learn more and to
access the resource, please consult the *Arachne *database (
http://arachne.uni-koeln.de/drupal/?q=en/node/291).* Digital CIL* is a
joint project of the American Academy in Rome, l’École française de Rome,
and das Deutsches Archäologisches Institut.****
