CaLiBRA is a searchable database containing black-and-white photographs of the Pylos documents. These were taken by Emile Seraphis in 1969 and are housed at the University of Cincinnati. Posts of documents which were subsequently joined are linked to each other. Scribal attribution has also been added which is based on current publications. Documents are searchable through a simple search interface which allows searches in all the metadata fields (including scribal data).

DAMOS is database containing all the published linear B texts in transcriptions. Texts are enriched with metadata and philological and linguistic annotations. It also includes a basic bibliography for each document, referring to entries in the main handbooks and anthologies in the field. The material is made accessible through an online graphic user interface allowing advanced searches of metadata and textual data (including proximity searches of words). DAMOS records are connected to LiBER, pa-i-to project, CaLiBRA, Arachne and Museums’ websites containing pictures and other metadata and can also be used as a general entry point to access information stored in different online resources. The data for the linguistic annotation are unfortunately not yet available for online searches, but will be made available online when completed.

LiBER is a database containing the published linear B texts in transcription from Knossos, Mycenae, Tiryns and Midea, together with black-and-white pictures provided by Hellenic Ministry of Culture and Sports. LIBER also contains metadata and philological annotations. The material is made accessible through an online graphic user interface allowing advanced searches of metadata and textual data, including full-text searches in the critical apparatus. LiBER also features the possibility to visualize data and search results by plotting them onto GIS maps.

The aim of PA-I-TO Project aims at providing a new critical edition of a subset of Mycenaean documents, namely those referring to the ancient site of Phaistós. The edition will be published online together with RTI pictures and 3D models of the documents. A number of RTI pictures are already freely accessible on the website.

The Pylos Digital Tablets Project
The project aims to document the administrative texts from Pylos, adding new digital technologies (RTI, 3D scanning, X-Ray Fluorescence analysis, Macroscopic analysis of the clay fabric) to traditional methods for documenting the tablets.
