EDINA at the University of Edinburgh
Here’s a bit of Shakespeare to warm your heart. Actually, it’s the Scottish play, so more likely it’ll chill your bones. EDINA have given us access not only to the full text of Macbeth (is it OK to write it?), but also to character and location listings. There’s so much you could do with this. Useful stuff, performance-orientated stuff, playful stuff. It’s exciting.
You can download the text, character & location listings here (xml).
What is EDINA?
EDINA seeks to enhance the productivity, quality and cost-effectiveness of research and education in the UK and beyond.
It is a UK national academic data centre, designated by JISC on behalf of UK funding bodies to support the activity of universities, colleges and research institutes in the UK, by delivering access to a range of online data services through a UK academic infrastructure, as well as supporting knowledge exchange and ICT capacity building, nationally and internationally.
EDINA innovates, generating knowledge, expertise and trust, through a focus on ease and continuity of access to scholarly resources and tools.
It is based at the University of Edinburgh. Together with the University Data Library, it is a division of Information Services.
What are EDINA interested in?
We want to see what you can do with a Scottish icon. It’s as simple as that. We’re interested in new approaches to classic texts. What doors are opened when you get access to this kind of content?
In the coming months EDINA is working on Will’s World – an online registry of online Shakespeare-related resources and hope that Culture Hack Scotland might result in some proof of concept projects.
