Colophon and acknowledgments
CODECS: Online Database and e-Resources for Celtic Studies is published online by the Dutch non-profit organisation A. G. van Hamel Foundation for Celtic Studies, or in Dutch, Stichting A. G. van Hamel voor Keltische Studies (stichting.vanhamel.nl). Individuals and research groups who have contributed to the catalogue will be acknowledged here, if they so prefer.
We would like to publicly thank anyone who supplied corrections or offered us working material, including Jacqueline Borsje, Christina Cleary, Sarah Corrigan, Beatrix Färber, Maxim Fomin, Gisbert Hemprich, Stephen Hewitt, Rijcklof Hofman, Kaarina Hollo, Britta Irslinger, Bart Jaski, Karel Jongeling, Julie Le Blanc, Feargal Ó Béarra, Tom O'Donovan, Judith Schoen, Tom Smith, Nike Stam, David Stifter, Marie-Luise Theuerkauf, Nicole Volmering and Ranke de Vries. Please accept our apologies if we forgot to include your name and do send us an e-mail so that this oversight can be addressed.
In the early stages of this website, instructive advice and technical help was offered to us by the team of the Lexicon Leponticum project (LexLep). A special thanks goes out to Martin Braun. LexLep is "an interactive online etymological dictionary of Lepontic" and quite possibly the first research project in Celtic studies to take advantage of the possibilities of MediaWiki software.
It must also be acknowledged that when this database was first launched, it was inspired by, and much indebted to, previous related work. For the study of medieval Irish literature, this includes Scéla: Catalogue of medieval Irish narratives & literary enumerations compiled by Štĕpán Kosík, Manuscript Sources to Old and Middle Irish Tales (MsOmit) compiled by Johan Corthals (Hamburg University) and The Cycles of the Kings (currently offline) created by Dr. Dan M. Wiley (Southern Illinois University), then at Hastings College (Nebraska).
The project does not currently benefit from any outside funding. Organisations or individuals who would like to offer financial support to the project are more than welcome to get in touch. You can contact us at email@example.com. Of course, we would welcome donations from you.
