Enhancements to an integrated information system of papyri collections with access to catalog records, texts, images, and a bibliography, a new user interface, and better integration with related scholarly databases, and expansion of the digital repository.

The Advanced Papyrological Information System (APIS) is one of the primary research databases in ancient and classical studies. The Duke Databank of Documentary Papyri (DDbDP) and the Heidelberger Gesamtverzeichnis (HGV) have now partnered with APIS to create a powerful access and research tool, the "Papyrological Navigator." This Phase 6 proposal seeks two-year funding to extend APIS within the context of the new DDbDP / APIS partnership by: further developing the Papyrological Navigator into a stable, robust production-oriented system; conducting formal usability testing and making improvements to the system based on the results; revising portions of the current APIS infrastructure to allow for better integration with the Papyrological Navigator and interoperability with other scholarly databases; continuing to load collection-based cataloging and images from new and existing partner institutions; and continuing to expand the APIS long-term digital preservation repository.
