Significant progress in the DCLP

From ISAW website
"Significant progress has been made. Teams at Heidelberg and Leuven University's Trismegistos project have worked together to create descriptive records for over 14,000 literary and sub-literary papyri, drawing on data from the Leuven Database of Ancient Books and other resources. The W├╝rzburg team has concentrated its efforts on the Herculaneum papyri, creating additional descriptive records for over 250 of these uniquely complex and difficult objects. These teams have also been working together to prepare texts, of which nearly 200 have been prepared, including 99 of the Herculaneum papyri."
