What's new in MyNDIR

What's New in Edition 2.1

  • Completed the requirements to make the site Endings Compliant to ensure long term digital sustainability.
  • Began the MyNDIR-IDG Project, funded by an SSHRC Insight Development Grant, in the fall of 2020 to add Victorian/Edwardian illustrations from retellings of Norse Mythology to the site.
  • Revised the “About” page and included a new “About Us” section with a link to the new MyNDIR Team page.
  • Added a “What’s New in MyNDIR?” page to give detailed version updates and linked it to the “About” page.
  • Revised the information concerning artistic "Medium" for items whose method of creation is difficult to discern, e.g., different types of engraving.
  • Added 57 illustrations from four books: 7 illustrations from The Heroes of Asgard, first published in 1857; 11 illustrations from Norse Stories, first published in 1882; 6 illustrations from In the Days of Giants; and 33 illustrations from The Elder or Poetic Edda (1908).
  • Added paratextual images such as the book cover for Norse Stories: Retold from the Eddas and the title page for The Elder or Poetic Edda.
  • Added early print reviews in "Research notes, early print reviews, etc." for The Heroes of Asgard, first published in 1857; Norse Stories, first published in 1882; In the Days of Giants, first published in 1901; and The Elder or Poetic Edda
    (1908).
  • Added information pertinent to individual illustrations in "Research notes, early print reviews, etc.", i.e., Louis Huard’s illustrations in the 1908 edition of the The Heroes of Asgard (p. 195), and W. G. Collingwood’s illustrations in The Elder or Poetic Edda (pp. 113, 276, and 277).
  • Added new e-book links to “E-resources" for the books we have been working on. Also added the United States to the list of countries in order to include links to Norse Stories and In the Days of Giants.
