Cuneiform Digital Library Initiative Framework Update

An infrastructure update of the established Cuneiform Digital Library Initiative that focuses on improving sustainability and enhancing accessibility for both new users and the existing user community.

The Cuneiform Digital Library Initiative (CDLI) is a 20-year strong international digital humanities project curating data and maintaining the largest database of artifacts inscribed with cuneiform writing from ancient Iraq and adjacent regions. The CDLI Framework Update is a consolidation project aimed at ensuring both the longevity of the CDLI data and interface, and at increasing access, usability, and accessibility to the information it curates. As part of numerous sub-projects, a wide array of technologies to provide software support have been used through the years. The CDLI Framework Update will consolidate actual features into a framework structure and prepare new data displays, including machine readable outputs, to enhance information diffusion. This update will strengthen digital structure of CDLI, facilitating maintenance and future developments, and increasing access to information about ancient cultures to actual and prospective audiences, including the disabled.
