[October 26, 2000] "The Perseus Project is an evolving digital library of resources for the study of the ancient world and beyond." The project began in 1985 under the direction of Gregory Crane, producing heterogeneous collection of materials, textual and visual, on the Archaic and Classical Greek world.
We describe a generalized toolset developed by the Perseus Project to manage XML documents in the context of a large, heterogeneous digital library.
The Perseus digital library project has developed a generalizable toolset to manage XML (Extensible Markup Language) documents of varying DTDs (Document Type Definitions); to extract structural and descriptive metadata from these documents and deliver document fragments on demand; and to support other tools that analyze linguistic and conceptual features and manage document layout.

 Symposium 2: Mylonas   (Site not responding. Last check: )
Perseus is also one of the larger projects of its kind, and exceptional in that it may be used by a broad range of disciplines.
Although the data in the distributed Perseus is in a relatively impoverished format, the data from which this version is derived is extremely rich, and has the potential to be put to other uses, and distributed in different forms.
In Perseus 2.0, all she has to do is type the word, then press Return, and she will see a list of all valid categories of information that are relevant to that word.

 The Perseus Project: Learning and Teaching
An examination of the Perseus Project, an interactive multi-media library of primary source materials of Archaic and Classical Greece, shows that it is educationally founded in a cognitive perspective of learning in which the user constructs knowledge for herself.
Perseus was designed with this intention in mind, as Crane and Mylonas explain, "A wide spectrum of disciplines ranging from classics and western civilization to political science, art, and philosophy will be able to incorporate Perseus into their curricula" (Crane and Mylonas, 1988).
Perseus allows students to locate information related to their topic and add it to their paths, but does not assure that the information found will be comprehensive or of the highest relevance, let alone well annotated and sequenced.

 Smith
The Perseus Project was envisioned from the beginning as a multifaceted library that could have a breadth of material suitable for students of all ages and a depth of material suitable for scholars at any level.
Perseus hopes eventually to have reconstructions of the spatial and architectural complexes in which many of the sculptures in our catalog were originally found, starting with the Apollo sanctuary at Delphi, discussed in Tom Milbank’s contribution to this conference.
A more ambitious future project that involves the relation of copies to originals, and of separated fragments to each other is the implementation of 3-D scanning technology to create digital images of existing copies or fragments and subsequent reconstructions of the original sculptural works on which they were based or to which they belonged.

 Cultivate Interactive Issue 2: The Symbiosis Between Content and Technology in the Perseus Digital Library   (Site not responding. Last check: )
Mutual enrichment is the focus of the project in another way as well, in that, unlike many digital libraries, it is built on the notion that its content will be continually deepened by the commentaries of scholars working on the texts in the corpus.
Projects such as ARCHEOGUIDE [13] push such limits of interactive technology; current bandwidth limitations with the WWW make the large-scale superimposition of 3D images on top of 3D reconstructions impossible.
While all these projects differ substantially, they are united by our consistent effort to study the ways in which documents which are distinct in print libraries begin to merge with one another in a digital library, dissolving their individual structures and supporting new patterns of intellectual inquiry.

 Internet Archaeol 3. Reviews. Eiteljorg. Perseus 2.0
Perseus 2.0 is very much enlarged from the first version, and it now fills four CDs (and there is a Concise Edition which consists of only a single CD; about one-quarter of the images are on that single CD).
I am assuming that the readers here are scholars who would use Perseus in one of two ways: as a resource for texts or images of objects and sites (assuming that they have less need for the descriptive materials) or as a place to begin research on something outside their normal reach.
Examples of those may be found at the Perseus Web site (see a photo of the steps of the North Porch of the Erechthem and a view of the ceiling of the North Porch).

 The Romulus Project: An Electronic Library of Latin Literature With Virtual Commentary
The Perseus Latin Project has put online the Lewis- Short Latin Dictionary, which derived from Andrews revision of excellent Germa n compilations of A through D early in the 19 th century, but failed to keep the level of work up to the original mark.
The ROMULUS PROJECT proposes a new series of Latin texts encompassing the body of the humanist, literary authors, with language notes for intermediate students as well as sensitive commentary on the text as literature, accompanie d by a selection of scholarly detail culled from two centuries of philological research.
The present project plans to work with the basic level of the program, the electronic infrastructure, which we feel we can extend to t he PC and more critically to the net level, in the course of one year.

 The Chronicle: Daily news: 07/14/2000 -- 02
The Perseus Project, a digital library housed at Tufts University, brings classicists and ancient-history buffs one step closer to tasting his defeat through views from the vantage of the commander.
Nicholas Gresens worked on the project last year as a graduate research fellow, and he sees the library enabling the survival of what is, to many people, archaic knowledge.
The latest CD-ROM version of the Perseus Project, "Perseus 2.0" for both Macintosh and Windows users, was released by Yale University Press this year.

 Workshop on Electronic Texts--Session II
In addition to these primary materials, the Perseus Project has been building tools for using them, making access and navigation easier, the goal being to build part of the electronic environment discussed earlier in the morning in which students or scholars can work with their sources.
Perseus has not been used so much for classics education as for general education, where it seemed to have an impact on the students in the core course at Harvard (a general required course that students must take in certain areas).
Perseus is very popular, and anecdotal evidence indicates that it is having an effect at places other than Harvard, for example, test sites at Ball State University, Drury College, and numerous small places where opportunities to use vast amounts of primary data may not exist.

 Navigating Ancient Worlds
The Perseus project at Tufts University is a digital library that provides its users with the winged sandals of technology to aid them in their pursuit of knowledge.
"Perseus is like a library that belongs to all of us, to students and faculty and to scholars and students who are not affiliated with any university," says Laura Gibbs, assistant professor of classics and letters at the University of Oklahoma.
Students of many disciplines are using the Perseus project as a guide through the vast maze of information about the ancient world, much like Theseus, who threaded a ball of string behind him as he wandered the labyrinth in search of the Minotaur.

 DIDASKALIA: Ancient Theater Today
Perseus, it could be said, serves not only the serious researcher, but the simply curious bystander interested in classical culture.
Strong as Perseus is in its classical collections, it has ventured in recent years into areas other than the ancient world, the most prominent of which is the Renaissance and the appearance on line of the complete works of Christopher Marlowe in both contemporary printings and significant modern editions.
In short, the Perseus Project is a major source of classical research material immediate to hand, frequently vast in its scope, and highly useable in its manner of presentation.

 PERSEUS:Portal-enabled resource via Shibbolized end-user security home
PERSEUS (Portal-Enabled Resources via Shibbolized End-User Security) addressed the key challenge of Shibboleth-based access management to information resources via an institutional portal, using the uPortal Open Source portal toolkit.
The project's aim was to deliver a generalised campus architecture for adoption by FE and HE institutions, supported by documentation at conceptual and technical levels, and reusable software components available as Open Source.
In particular, the system initially developed at Stanford University under the Stanford Authority Project is favoured for further development by NMI-EDIT, and is now the subject of the Signet Project.

 The PERSEUS Security Framework
PERSEUS is a trustworthy computing framework that aims at establishing an open security architecture by efficiently combining existing applications, modern operating system solutions and security technology.
Based on the well-approved idea of a security kernel, it solves the problem of the ever increasing complexity and insecurity of commonly used operating systems to build a trustworthy computing base that is secure enough to realise new and innovative business models, particulary in the area of privacy protection and Digital Rights Management (DRM).
The modular design of the PERSEUS framework allows the realization of a wide variety of security and functional requirements for desktop systems and servers as well as mobile devices.

 An Accessible Perseus   (Site not responding. Last check: )
Today, numerous features of the Perseus Project are inaccessible to a variety of end users.
If Perseus' code complies with a DTD such as HTML 4.01 Transitional or XHTML 1.0 Strict, Perseus will be accessible to both existing and yet-to-be-developed user agents.
Thus, whether Perseus' pages should be changed from table-based layout to CSS-based layout requires analysis of which browsers end users use to access the site, and one must weigh the benefits of an easy-to-manage, faster-to-load, and more accessible site with the costs of possible inconsistencies in presentation among various user agents.
