International collaboration for the digitization of pre-Islamic Arabian epigraphs

 
The collaboration between DASI project and the European centres for the study of Arabia goes on.
 
After the meeting organized in May 2013 with the representatives of the OCIANA project, new agreements for the interaction of the two archives have been set up during a meeting in Pisa in April 2014.
The teams of the Universities of Pisa and Oxford, are working on a common search tool, which will retrieve results from both archives on the text of the inscriptions and on selected metadata regarding the epigraphic items.
 
Moreover, in April 2014 the cataloguing of the Nabataean inscriptions in DASI,  under the supervision of Dr. Laila Nehm√© of the CNRS- UMR 8167 (Paris), has begun.
