Syriac Reference Portal contributes names to VIAF

 

The second set of personal names from a scholarly resource, the Syriac Reference Portal hosted by Vanderbilt University, has been loaded into the Virtual International Authority File (VIAF). The Syriac names join the Roman and Greek personal names loaded from the Perseus Catalog last November and blogged about here as part of our Scholars’ Contributions to VIAF activity.

See Karen Smith-Yoshimura’s New Scholars’ Contributions to VIAF: Syriac! HangingTogether blog post for more information.
