Subject: Humanist's searching function Dear colleagues, Brian Maher, Senior Research Software Engingeer & Systems Administrator at King's Digital Lab, has just sent me the following: > I have some good news to share amongst the gloom... I have now > implemented a basic version of the archive search for Humanist! I > have kept the styling in keeping with the rest of the site, and there > is little we can really do to display “preview” results of HTML > files, but it is now, at least, finally possible to perform a text > search over the entire archive. > > E.g: https://dhhumanist.org/search.html?q=DH2008 or (going further > back) https://dhhumanist.org/search.html?q=ICCH87 > > The search index will be automatically updated at 23:00 UTC every > day, so please don’t be alarmed if newly sent messages don’t show up > in search results until the following day (it’s just more efficient > to perform a daily index update, rather than updating on every sent > email). All our thanks to him for the fine work. Since Humanist has migrated several times and so taken on several formats, the results of a search cannot be homogeneous, but at least everything in the archive is now within easy reach. From an historical point of view, this is quite a horde, on the basis of which histories and sociologies of digital humanities from 1987 to the moving present can be written. We've not been good at paying attention to our own history; indeed, sometimes I think that very few of us are aware that we have much of a past, that this past matters and that histories written from its record would greatly strengthen and clarify what the digital humanities are capable of.
