We have developed a new computer application so that the Fontes database can be used directly on your PC, independently of the internet. (NOTE: The application is not designed to work on Apple Macs.)
It uses Microsoft Access 2000, but for those who do not have Access 2000 installed on their PCs the package includes a Runtime version which can be installed as part of the application (but please note that the Runtime software requires at least 70MB of disk space). The stand-alone version offers very substantial advances on the current web version, including: some very useful summary results, such as the full list of source authors used by a particular writer; more detail on records; the opportunity to see a range of records at the same time, and to move easily backwards and forwards; easier access and more transparent results; access to the Fontes register without needing to be connected to the internet; and a copy of the full database in Microsoft Access 97 giving you access to all the data that we have and which you can use in MS Access or another database programme to run your own queries (please note our COPYRIGHT AND PERMISSIONS statement below).
The new application (designated 'CD-ROM Version 1.1') was initially published on CD-ROM and there are a limited number of copies left. It is also available as a download from this site.
