The first corpus of Roman inscriptions from Tripolitania was published by Joyce Reynolds in 1952. In 2009 she worked with Gabriel Bodard, Tom Elliott, Charlotte Roueché and Hafed Walda to republish that volume - with some 20 more texts - in digital form, with translations and full illustration. In 2021 Bodard and Roueché, with Caroline Barron and Irene Vagionakis worked to enhance that publication by adding all the inscriptions from the area published since 1952, drawing on the Egpigraphische Datenbank Heidelberg, Papyri.info, and other sources.

The files have been published using EFES: https://github.com/EpiDoc/EFES
