Checklist 2.0:

Checklist of Editions of Greek, Latin, Demotic, and Coptic Papyri, Ostraca, and Tablets
Founding Editors: John F. Oates and William H. Willis 

Message from Josh Sosin 
Colleagues:  I announced some time ago our intention to revive and refactor the Checklist. Please find the first steps in that effort at http://papyri.info/docs/checklist. Eventually the site will be more tightly integrated with the PN/PE. 
 The new instance differs in some ways. Section VII 'Information on Publishers' does not appear; such information is discoverable online, and we aim to embed links to WorldCat records or the like, so that users can locate volumes with relative ease. Section VIII 'List by year of publication' is also omitted. We may later be able to generate this dynamically, if there is strong demand. The appendix of 'Other citations' is likewise omitted here. This information will be integrated with citation information in the PN so that it will be discoverable by simple lookup. The most important difference is that we are now updating it fairly quickly. Special thanks here go to Robert Maxwell of BYU, who has very generously volunteered his time and careful eye. All best, josh --  Associate Professor, Classical Studies, Duke University Duke Collaboratory for Classics Computing Greek, Roman and Byzantine Studies Duke Data Bank of Documentary Papyri
