CDL Cataloguing Conventions

There are currently two catalogue databases used by the Cuneiform Digital Library projects (CDLI, PSD, and DCCLT), the exemplar text catalogue, and the composite text catalogue. Both are currenlty maintained using FileMaker Pro 6.

You may download the current public version of the individual texts catalogue in FileMaker format or tab-delimited text format. Partners and associates of CDL projects may find it useful to download and use the FileMaker database for data-entry purposes. Updates and additions to the catalogue will be incorporated by CDLI staff in Los Angeles.

A preliminary documentation of the catalogues is now available (work in progress).

For comments and questions or to submit catalogue updates, please contact Madeleine Fitzgerald.
