Quick takes: TLG is updated!

The site now features a new search function, and requires all users to register, even when they are logging in via an institution.

I’ll report back when I’ve played with the new functionality. So far, I have discovered that it’s harder to browse than before, and previous posts on using the TLG may no longer be accurate.

  1. Thanks for your comment! You’re entirely right about the old interface.

    I wonder if the increased difficulty in browsing is on purpose. The registration process (I had to get a new account) is very clear about copyright and legal/fair use of TLG texts. (At one point, they seem to be suggesting that even use of TLG texts in a published work is not legit — both interesting and disappointing for a research project from a public university in an increasingly open-access world.) Maybe they’ve been having IP problems lately? As a user, it’s hard for me to imagine, because TLG texts require so much editing before they can be used in (e.g.) a conference handout or a Powerpoint. Copying large swathes of texts just doesn’t seem that appealing. But maybe I’m an outlier.
