Estonian TV Girls' Choir
by Lisa Trei

Two dozen young women, wearing colorful dresses made from traditional Estonian striped woolen cloth, silently filed into Memorial Church on July 15 to present an a cappella concert of sacred music. Rather than form an ordinary row in front of the audience, members of the renowned Estonian Television Girls’ Choir walked up the main and side aisles and began to sing, “Wake up my Heart” (“Mu süda ärka üles”) by the 20th-century Estonian composer Cyrillus Kreek.

Corpus Christi College and Stanford University Libraries begin development on Parker on the Web 2.0, which will offer new functionality and improved user experience.

14 July 2015Parker on the Web has become one of the leading digital medieval manuscript sites since 2005, when an early prototype was first demonstrated.  Now, ten years after the prototype, and six years after the release of the first production version, work has begun on Parker on the Web 2.0. 

The most visible changes will involve an entirely restyled website, access optimized for mobile devices as well as fixed-location computing, and full compatibility with the International Image Interoperability Framework (IIIF).  At the same time, important changes will be made to the business model, which will no longer require an institutional site license for comprehensive access when Parker 2.0 is launched in January 2018.
