Database of Latin Dictionaries: Important update

We are glad to announce that the Database of Latin Dictionaries‘ new interface has been launched. This change of interface not only allows for more advanced search options (including, for instance, the possibility to look for phrases rather than just single headwords), but it also includes a first version of the Brepolis Latin lemmas, prepared by the Centre ‘Traditio Litterarum Occidentalium’ in order to strengthen the link between dictionaries and attestations in the full-text databases.

If you are already a DLD user and want to know what are the main differences between the old and the new search interface, we invite you to have a look at this short video:

Update Sources Chrétiennes Online

The Sources Chrétiennes Online (SCO) database was updated. It now provides source texts and French translations from 456 of the 625 printed volumes. Some notable additions are Origen’s Contra Celsum, the Rule of St Benedict, and William of St-Thierry’s Mirror of Faith.

By 2025, the SCO database will cover all volumes by then published in print in the long-running Sources Chrétiennes edition project. In this latest update, historical authors have also been provided with links to external authority files (to be expanded), and it has become possible to click on to the corresponding headwords in the Database of Latin Dictionaries through the short definitions for Latin words in the Instrumenta pop-up.

Webinaire Database of Latin Dictionaries

Nous avons le plaisir de vous annoncer qu’un webinaire sur la Database of Latin Dictionaries (DLD) sera organisé ce 9 février à 11h du matin.

La Database of Latin Dictionaries constitue une base de données comprenant un grand nombre de dictionnaires latins mis en ligne au bénéfice des chercheurs et des étudiants. Cette base de données est progressivement amplifiée et elle comprend différents types de dictionnaires: dictionnaires bilingues ou plurilingues qui proposent les traductions des mots latins dans les langues vernaculaires, dictionnaires de recherche de haut niveau, dictionnaires historiques.

Ce mercredi 9 février à 11 h, nous donnerons une courte présentation en ligne de cette base de données en français.

Cette présentation est destinée aux bibliothécaires, aux chercheurs et aux étudiants.

Il n’est nul besoin d’installer un programme spécifique (la présentation se déroule via Microsoft Teams). Il suffit d’avoir accès à un ordinateur avec une connexion internet, et d’activer le son. Nous vous recommandons de couper le son de votre micro durant la présentation afin d’éviter les bruits de fond dérangeants.

  • Quand? Le mercredi 9 février à 11h.
  • Durée: environ 15 min.
  • Contenu: Une présentation de la base de données « Database of Latin Dictionaries » suivie d’une session de Questions/Réponses
