Using this feature, a number of groups and individuals started publishing their own versions of al-Maktaba al-Shamila with many additional texts (e.g. the augmented Shamela collection of Islamport.com contained 3,300 books already in September 2006 and more than 5,000 books in March 2007; al-Maktaba al-Shamila al-Dhahabiyya contained 29,000 books in 2019). A number of these apocryphal shamela collections were created by groups from minority (non-Sunni) Islamic communities (e.g., al-Maktaba al-Zaydiyya al-Shamila, al-Maktaba al-Shamila al-Ibadiyya) whose books were not represented in the main Shamela collection. We will discuss these unofficial shamela collections in a later blog.
The handlists that were produced for the digitized materials often omit the whereabouts of the original manuscripts, which is a major hurdle for the accurate scholarly usage of the material and subsequent scholarly communication about the manuscripts, as well as for future efforts to digitize additional private collections. Generally, the cataloguing of the holdings of the libraries of Yemen, especially the private ones, is in a very poor state and their history has not been studied up until now. Moreover, as a result of the political vicissitudes of Yemen during the twentieth and twenty-first centuries, and the fact that most private libraries are in family ownership, those libraries are subject to constant change, and it is often unclear whether a library, quoted for example in a handlist created by Egyptian scholars in the 1960s, still exists, and, if so, under which name.
'Kissing, Joseph, is but a Prologue to a Play. Can I believe a young Fellow of your Age and Complexion will be content with Kissing?'Joseph Andrews, Henry Fielding's first full-length novel, depicts the many colourful and often hilarious adventures of a comically chaste servant. After being sacked for spurning the lascivious Lady Booby, Joseph takes to the road, accompanied by his beloved Fanny Goodwill, a much-put-upon foundling girl, and Parson Adams, a man often duped and humiliated, but still a model of Christian charity. In the boisterous short tale Shamela, a brilliant parody of Richardson's Pamela, the spirited and sexually honest heroine uses coyness and mock modesty to catch herself a rich husband. Together these works anticipate Fielding's great comic epic Tom Jones, with their amiable good humour and pointed social satire.Judith Hawley's introduction compares the works of Fielding and Richardson, and discusses sex and class relations, and the literary and political world of the time. This volume also includes a chronology and suggestions for further reading. ...read more Format ebook

The JRL Turkish manuscripts collection consists of 195 items, dating from the fifteenth century to the nineteenth century. Most manuscripts are in Ottoman Turkish, but twelve of them are written in Çağatay and one is a Latin transcription of a compilation of Turkish and Armenian texts. J. Schmidt published a catalog of the entire collection in 2011, which details the wide range of subjects that it contains, including anthologies of poetry, narrative poetry, guides for dervish novices, fables and stories, commentaries, grammar books, letters (among which, a number of Ottoman official documents), biographies and biographical dictionaries, dictionaries and vocabulary lexicons, travelogues, library catalogs, texts on religious ethics, jurisprudence (fiqh), history, medicine, geography, cosmography, astronomy, mathematics, and music.
The archives are open to researchers from Monday to Friday, between 9:00 and 15:00, except all official holidays of the Greek state. The archive is wheelchair accessible via a special entrance from a side-road, while a special lift facilitates access to the library room on the first floor.
Users of the OpenITI corpus will find the corpus in two key locations:GitHub( )and Zenodo (links for specific releases given below). The first is the activeversion of the corpus, and the second keeps snapshots of the corpus ata given time, for citation purposes.
For this reason we release the corpus regularly onto Zenodo. This is aplatform that allows for the archiving of data that can be linkedthroughout time without any risk of change. The corpus is released ontoZenodo with a specific version number (based on the date of therelease). A full record of the releases is foundhere.See also the list of releases below:
When publishing research, it is important to refer to the exact releasenumber that was used for the research project. For example, if onedownloaded the 2019.1.1 version of the corpus from Zenodo and did textmining using that corpus, one should cite 2019.1.1 in the paper. Thisallows other readers to repeat results. It also allows us to associateanalysis of the full corpus with a release number (for example passimruns are always associated with a particular Zenodo release).
The latest release of OpenITI contains 10,202 text files, each of whichcontains the full text of a work (whether it is a single-volume ormulti-volume work). For some works, the corpus contains multipleversions (digitizations of distinct paper editions, distinctdigitizations of the same edition, identical digitizations of the sameedition). The 10,202 text files represent 6,236 distinct works, by 2,582distinct authors.
OpenITI releases are published under the CC BY-NC-SA4.0license. Our files are based firstly on existing open digital libraries,which we acknowledge in our URIs. Please, do cite URIs of specific filesif you use them in your research. To cite the entire corpus, pleasecheck the release version which you would like to cite and use thecitation information from our GitHub repository( ).OpenITI releases are freely available to download, in their entirety atthe above link and Zenodo.
