Workbench Collections 2.1 was released in December 2021. The 2.1 release includes a faceted search feature for text and inscription collections and introduces the concept of TextBase avatars. Digital renditions, with bespoke permutations of analysis strata, can be published within thematic collections. This enables websites to host their own research specific catalogue and publish digital renditions configured for their research objectives and audience. This architecture distributes publishing to institution or project specific sites and, consequently, the Collections 1.1 site has been deprecated.
