Old DNB online

ちょっと日本語訳しているヒマはないですが、ビックリしたニュースを転載します。H-Albion で流れてきました。Oxford DNB online は来年3月に利用を更新しないといけません。けっして安くはないので、悩みは大きい。


Subject: Old DNB coming online

The new Oxford Dictionary of National Biography (ODNB) is a wonderful though expensive online resource: http://www.oxforddnb.com/

Good news for researchers who can still use the old DNB is that volumes are gradually coming online via a scanning project at the Million Books Project, accessible at Internet Archive:
http://www.archive.org/details/texts

Search results page for the DBN volumes:
http://www.archive.org/search.php?query=National%20Biography%20AND%20mediatype%3Atexts%20AND%20collection%3Amillionbooks
(or http://tinyurl.com/cfwf4).

Seven volumes are available now in DjVu format. The filesizes are large--40MB or so; the DjVu document reader plugin is free from LizardTech:

DjVu files can also be viewed with an integrated online applet.

As well, the 1903 Index and Epitome volume, ed. Sidney Lee, is online at the Perseus Project:
http://nils.lib.tufts.edu/cgi-bin/ptext?doc=Perseus%3Atext%3A4000.01.0016

The summary bios are accessible only one at a time by searching or browsing, and the Perseus search engine can be cranky.

どなたか、ダウンロードしてみます? いわゆる人柱ですね。
