    "Colloquia familiaria: a selection" is a digital archive consisting of
    several colloquia by Erasmus with introductory essays, interpretive
    questions, notes, as well as a brief discussion of current standards in
    electronic publication. Created by Jennifer Nelson, a University of
    Kentucky graduate student in Classics and Library and Information
    Science, this publication was intended to serve a number of purposes:
    first and foremost, we wanted to introduce intermediate Latin students
    to Erasmus' colloquia. Beyond that, the goal was to showcase TEI-XML as
    a text-encoding practice that can increase the likelihood of long-term
    preservation of digital documents in the humanities, and that can
    accommodate the high standards of resource description found in library
    MARC (machine-readable cataloging) records. At present, this collection
    includes an excerpt from the initial "Formulae," plus "A Lesson in
    Manners," "The Girl with No Interest in Marriage," "Inns," and "The
    Abbot and the Learned Lady". We do invite submissions, however, as we
    hope that this archive will continue to grow through the contributions
    of other Erasmus enthusiasts. This project was completed under the
    editorial supervision of Jane Phillips and Ross Scaife (Classics,
    University of Kentucky), with additional technical advising from Joseph
    B. Miller (Library and Information Science, University of Kentucky).
    All of these materials reside in a single TEI-conformant XML file whose
    presentation on the web in HTML format has been effected via TEI-XSL
    (release 3.0).
