Subject: new project

This is to announce a new project launched by the "Centro
Linceo Interdisciplinare" of the "Accademia Nazionale dei
Lincei" [via della Lungara, 10 - 00165 Roma]

The project, named "Archivio Testuale Multimediale" (ARTEM),
will pursue three main goals:

1) To build a repository of electronic texts in Italian language,
selected on the basis of the best editorial reliability, and
fully encoded according to the best standards available.
The repository will be freely accessible in www network.

2) To link the repository to other similar ones, offering
the same scientific reliability.

3) To build a catalogue of existing electronic texts in
Italian language, providing a statement of their editorial
reliability and encoding methodology, and stating if and how
they are available.

Special attention is devoted to the problems of encoding,
following the SGML procedures, according to the standards
proposed by TEI. The previous analysis of textual features,
to obtain the full list of elements to encode, will be
declared and discussed.

Collaboration is evisaged with the Oxford Text Archive,
Princeton's CETH, the Tr<e'>sor de la Langue Fran<c,>aise,
the Institut f<u:>r deutsche Sprache of Mannheim, and all
academic Institutions dealing with electronic texts and
interested in this project.

All those interested in the project, and especially those
who can provide information on existing e-texts in Italian, may
contact the following e-address:
