Siguiendo con los rizos...

Encontré un montón de referencias como esta, mas todas, absolutamente todas, limitaban el acceso a la database, permitiendo única y exclusivamente a los alumnos y maestros consultar dichos datos.

Muchos sitios hacían algo peor: dejaban buscar, consultar a los estudiantes y profesores, pero sin poder guardar ABSOLUTAMENTE NADA.

Para ejemplo, este texto:

Search results

Search results are displayed in summary form, organized by print volume and further subdivided by author. PLD defines a "match" as a text having at least one occurrence of the search criteria. PLD defines a "hit" to be the number of occurrences of the search criteria found in a text. Thus, one will usually have more hits than matches. To the right of each summary is a number indicating the times within each author's work the search criteria were found. Clicking on the table of contents icon () to the right of the search results will take you to the table of contents of the specific print volume. Clicking on any of the summaries will take you to the full text. For texts greater than two hundred kilobytes, a warning screen will appear, notifying the user that large texts take a long time to download. Within the full text your search criteria are noted by an orange icon bullet () preceding the search term(s).

Migne's printed edition of the Patrologia Latina is divided into columns, two to a printed page. Most columns are further divided into A, B, C or D, representing divisions down the columns. Since a column of text is displayed as a full screen, column numbers have been added to the text to show where the divisions in the original printed edition occur. In addition, each document has a column number reference. Column numbers appear in bold and within square brackets, for example "[Col. 0967A]." Moreover, references to books of the Bible and to other Patristic or Classical works appear in bold and in brackets, for example "(Luca, I, 36)." The references are standardized and changes of rendition are ignored. There is no online index for these references.

Searching the keyword phrase "praeses consilii" demonstrates both the display of images and the display of Greek text. Greek text is incorporated into the Latin text. Images are noted by the figure icon (). Clicking on the icon will retrieve the image. Clicking on the text only icon () on the top of the page will remove from the screen all icons and notes which appear in the text. Clicking on the text with notes icon () removes from the screen all icons, but leaves any notes. One drawback of the PLD web version is that Greek text, Hebrew text, and image files are not searchable.

Additional icons that will appear within search results:

  • previous hit icon () scrolls directly to the previous hit
  • next hit icon () scrolls directly to the next hit
  • cross reference icon () takes you directly to the relevant point in the database
  • apparatus icon () opens an apparatus page of marginalia or editorial notes
  • variant readings icon () opens an apparatus page containing alternative readings.

Finally, the current web version does not offer features to save search strategies, save results, and e-mail or download results.
