Abstract

Open Greek and Latin: Digital Humanities in an Open Collaboration with Pedagogy

This paper outlines and describes the work flow used to create the First Thousand Years of Greek component of the Open Greek and Latin project. Open Greek and Latin (OGL) is an international collaborative consortium of librarians, faculty and researchers committed to creating an Open Educational Resource (OER) featuring a corpus of digital texts, deep-reading tools, and open-source software. The consortium is working to free researchers (and library resources) from dependence on commercialized data and addresses the growing need for open textual corpora to support new forms of born-digital annotation, advanced reading practices, and expanded audiences for pre-modern Greek and Latin. The authors include two use cases for the open access collection and suggest expanded research opportunities as it grows to include multilingual translations and editions. They describe the challenges and opportunities encountered in the process and propose ways in which this international collaboration can grow via distributed teams of librarians, faculty, students, and researchers.
