Citing SAAo URLs online and in print

This page describes how to refer to SAAo web pages online or in print, using short, stable URLs.

Oracc.org | Projects | Single texts

Oracc.org

Whether you are linking to SAAo from a web page or another online resource, or citing SAAo resources in print, you should NOT cite the oracc.museum.upenn.edu server directly. Instead, use the hostname http://oracc.org. Then append the relevant part of the URL as given in the examples, which are designed to be permanent. The hostname http://oracc.org will always redirect to the current Oracc server, wherever it is hosted.

Projects

Decide whether you want to link to the home page of a project (which is likely to include a text-based description of its aims and scope), or directly to the corpus outline. Always the lower-case project abbreviation, and remember to include the final /. For instance:

Project home page
http://oracc.org/saao/
Corpus home page
http://oracc.org/saao/corpus/

Some projects have subprojects:

Subproject home page
http://oracc.org/saao/saa10/
Subproject corpus home page
http://oracc.org/saao/saa10/corpus/

Texts

There are various different ways of linking to single texts in a corpus. For instance:

Single texts

To link directly to a single text in a project, for instance to embed it in another web page, use the the text's ID (i.e., P-, Q- or X-number) and add /html. For example:
