Comment:        Re: SHK 14.2283 LION

My point about the inefficiency of image capture has been entirely
misconstrued (my own fault for not recapping my original argument).
Before, I had casually suggested a database like LION could, in theory,
be run off a library network directly. As Gabriel Egan pointed out, this
argument cannot apply to EEBO because it is a much larger database than
LION - my comment about EEBO was simply agreeing with this, not a
comment on EEBO itself and certainly not a 'charge' against it.

The BSA has been brought into this discussion several times. A project
to produce text files of all known Renaissance Drama texts is exciting -
there is plenty of room on the BSA server if anyone wants to have a go.
I would start by being very nice to Gabriel Egan and persuading him to
donate his impressive database of Renaissance plays at
http://www.gabrielegan.com/nsdd/db.htm and then create links to (or even
an archive of) all existing and freely available plays on the web, of
which there must be close to a hundred. Many are buried away in
unexpected places, such as this gem, The Birth of Merlin, at
http://www.lib.rochester.edu/camelot/rowley.htm; most know about the
great Renascence editions at http://www.uoregon.edu/~rbear/ren.htm but I
rarely see mention of www.blackmask.com, which has a lot of Middleton
and most of the Shakespeare apocrypha.
