        Subject: Distant Reading Novel Collections Released in ELTeC Version 0.5.0

One of the principal aims of COST Action Distant Reading for European Literary
History is to build a multilingual European Literary Text Collection (ELTeC),
ultimately containing around 2,500 full-text novels in at least 10 different
languages. Today, we are pleased to announce the first public release of ELTeC,
with nine language collections included!

The ultimate aim is for ELTeC is to provide multiple collections of 100 novels
published between 1840 and 1920 in their original language. Work to add more
novels to ELTeC is ongoing, as we aim to build a corpus which will aid us in our
task to develop the resources necessary to change the way European literary
history is written. Progress towards our goal and current statistics about the
collections can be found on this ELTeC Summary page:

Language collections in this first release are in German, English, French,
Italian, Norwegian (Bokmål and Nynorsk), Portuguese, Romanian, Serbian, and
Slovenian. The collections can be downloaded here:

Each novel is encoded in compliance with the guidelines of the Text Encoding
Initiative (TEI), and we have published details about the criteria for corpus
composition and encoding guidelines here: https://distantreading.github.io/, and
about our TEI schemas here: https://github.com/COST-

As work progresses on ELTeC, we invite you to use our collections. Feedback from
the community would be very welcome as we improve our collections and work
towards future releases. Please feel free to write to
me or Action Chair, Christof
Schöch with your comments. If you are interested in
becoming a member of our Action, find out more here: https://www.distant-

Thanks to all of our colleagues from across Europe (and beyond) who have helped
us to reach this important milestone!
