Systematik der Forschungsbibliothek des Herder-Instituts

"Die erste Fassung dieser Systematik entstand kurz nach der Gründung der Bibliothek im Jahr 1950. Sie war geprägt durch die unmittelbare Nachkriegszeit. Seither ist sie laufend den aktuellen historischen und wissenschaftspolitischen Veränderungen angepasst worden. Die grundlegende geografisch-regionale Gliederung, die auf den Grenzen von 1937 beruht, ist jedoch aus rein praktischen Erwägungen beibehalten worden."

EAGLE Vocabulary - Dating Criteria

"The common use among Members of the BPN is to insert, when this information is available two dates. A 'Not before' and 'Not after' dates. This is still a best practice and has been preserved as such in any encoding. There are nevertheless divergences on historical periods and indeed in the way computations are done. In many cases only a generic date is possible.

EAGLE Vocabulary - Decoration

"Terms in this vocabulary refer to any decoration surrounding an inscription. Hederae, crosses, and chi-rho monograms are probably among the most frequent decorations, but there are a number of classifiable features of decoration which support and are indeed vital in some cases, to the understanding of the inscribed text. Many artistic classification could be suggested, but for the purposes of epi- graphic research we offer a flat list of features which can be found surrounding an inscription."

EAGLE Vocabulary - Execution Technique

"This vocabulary collects all writing techniques and types as attested in the EAGLE BPN. A major classification problem is faced on this respect by epigraphists. In same cases the distinction between the method used to produced a text is used as a principle for a definition, in some other the name of the writing technique is based on the result obtained, no matter of the method that was used. In particular Punctim, litt. Scariphatis and litt. Eminentibus are defintions of this second type."

Nomenclature of Territorial Units for Statistics

"The current NUTS 2013 classification is valid from 1 January 2015 and lists 98 regions at NUTS 1, 276 regions at NUTS 2 and 1342 regions at NUTS 3 level.
The NUTS classification (Nomenclature of territorial units for statistics) is a hierarchical system for dividing up the economic territory of the EU for the purpose of :
The collection, development and harmonisation of European regional statistics
Socio-economic analyses of the regions
