PhiloBiblon: Primary Sources for the Study of the Literature and Culture of Medieval and Early Modern Iberia

Updating PhiloBiblon, a bio-bibliographical database of texts written in the vernacular Romance languages of medieval and early modern Iberia-Portuguese, Castilian, Catalan, and Galician. The project would enhance the project's software and would incorporate 7,000 15th-century Spanish lyrics.

The goal of this eighteen-month project is to take steps to provide for the sustainability of PhiloBiblon, which serves as a vehicle for four major bio-bibliographical databases on the Romance vernacular cultures (Castilian, Portuguese, Galician, Catalan) of medieval and early modern Iberia (containing a total of almost 315,000 records). Succession planning is under way for staff and host institutions, but we must also ensure that both the database application software and the web-hosting software will remain viable vehicles for the dissemination of materials critical for the study of medieval and early modern Iberia, and, more importantly, that the data themselves remain available for the foreseeable future.
