With gratitude

In our initial year of development, we were greatly assisted by a number of people, who, although no longer actively participating in the project, provided essential support in helping us get to our feet. Our TEI P5 schema was initially developed and tested by Dot Porter and Linda Cantara, who also taught us how to encode our files. Our first, faltering steps to assemble texts and put together our first website were aided by our research assistants, Jim Cousins, Julie Fox, Jordan Dongell, and Casey Carmichael. Janette Whitford became our prime foot-soldier in the encoding wars, and for that, as well as for her continued dedication to the project, webmastery, spirit of invention, good cheer, and useful insights, we thank her. We also thank Ryan Baumann of the Center for Visualization and Virtual Environments (University of Kentucky), who did the initial programming for the CCL search engine. Clemens Radl listened to our plans and made wise suggestions. We would also like to acknowledge the inspiration we continue to draw from Dr. Linda Fowler-Magerl’s Clavis Canonum: Selected Canon Law Collections Before 1140 (see now http://www.mgh.de/ext/clavis/search.php?lang=en) -- Access with data processing (Monumenta Germaniae Historica, Hilfsmittel 21), as well as other digital projects in the field that we try to note in our Links page. Let us know what we’re missing!

During 2010-2011, development of the CCL was greatly advanced with the generous support of an NEH Digital Humanities Start-up Grant (Level 2), an ACLS Digital Humanities Innovation Fellowship, funding from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, and contributions from the University of Kentucky College of Arts and Sciences, the Graduate School, and Research for Computing in the Humanities.
