Digital Archiving

One of the most fundamental functions of digital work being done in the humanities today is the creation (and maintenance) of archives. The possibility of translations in the twenty-first century depends, at least in part, on the existence of textual databases online. In the work I do concerning late antiquity, for example, I’d be relatively lost without Brepols’ CETEDOC and the Library of Latin Texts. Digital archiving can do much more than provide fodder for translations, of course, and so here you’ll find a selection of resources aiming to provide a broader overview of the archival landscape.
