Creating an Online Digital Library of Cuneiform Tablets from circa 3000 BC to the 1st Century AD

The creation of a digital library of cuneiform tablets dating from the beginning of writing, ca. 3200 B.C until the dawn of the Christian era and the development of online tools for broad access to the textual data.

The CDLI is an international collaboration between UCLA, the German Max Planck Society, and other US and international cultural institutions and universities. We are requesting $247,059 over two years to develop on-line tools to allow broad access to the digital library of cuneiform tablets. Specifically, to create an interactive concordance system containing tools for both lexemic and grammatical analysis of Sumerian and Akkadian; implementation of an image-based paleography; and a systematic training program for humanities students and scholars in using the tools. Dissemination will occur through our website, on-line journals, CD and DVD, and presentation at international conferences.
