The aim of the project entitled “Computerized Historical Linguistic Database of Latin Inscriptions of the Imperial Age” (
) is to develop and digitally publish a fundamental computerized historical linguistic database that incorporates and treats the Vulgar Latin material of the Latin inscriptions from a specific group of the European provinces of the Roman Empire in the first phase. This will, on the one hand, allow for a more thorough study of the regional changes and the diversity of the Latin language of the Imperial Age. On the other hand, it could also serve as a basis for subsequent international co-operation, in the course of which further work on the computerized historical linguistic database may be executed. This paper intends to present the past and the present, as well as the future possibilities of this Database.

The application of online analytical processing (OLAP) technology to bibliographic databases is addressed. We show that OLAP
tools can be used by librarians for periodic and ad hoc reporting, quality assurance, and data integrity checking, as well
as by research policy makers for monitoring the development of science and evaluating or comparing disciplines, fields or
research groups. It is argued that traditional relational database management systems, used mainly for day-to-day data storage
and transactional processing, are not appropriate for performing such tasks on a regular basis. For the purpose, a fully functional
OLAP solution has been implemented on Biomedicina Slovenica, a Slovenian national bibliographic database. We demonstrate the system's usefulness by extracting data for studying a selection
of scientometric issues: changes in the number of published papers, citations and pure citations over time, their dependence
on the number of co-operating authors and on the number of organisations the authors are affiliated to, and time-patterns
of citations. Hardware, software and feasibility considerations are discussed and the phases of the process of developing
bibliographic OLAP applications are outlined.
The CANTUS database provides indices of chant manuscripts for the Office in both electronic and printed formats. The database was developed in the 1980s at the Catholic University of America under the leadership of Ruth Steiner. The goals and basic structure of the project remain true to the vision of its founder; however, since the move to Canada there have been some changes in format and presentation of the data. This progress report is the first official presentation of these alterations. Seventy-one liturgical books have been indexed. The centre of distribution is the project's website at http://publish.uwo.ca/~cantus/. The database consists of indices that indicate the actual contents of individual sources. The project has proven useful in a variety of fields including liturgical chant, early music, medieval liturgy, hagiography, and ecclesiastical history.
