STSM Linking and mapping research & education spaces
June 1, 2015 - June 5, 2015
Visit of Christophe Gueret to the BBC
The BCC, Jisc and the British Universities Film & Video Council (BUFVC) are working together on the project “Research & Education Space” (RES). The aim is to bring as much as possible of the UK’s publicly-held archives, and more besides, to learners and teachers across the UK. At the heart of RES is Acropolis, a technical platform which will collect, index and organise rich structured data about those archive collections published as Linked Open Data (LOD) on the Web. Data Archiving and Networked Services (DANS) is a digital preservation institute of the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences (KNAW) which takes care of data from the humanities and social sciences. It is the host of several datasets, some of them published as Linked Open Data, and works closely with other institutions publishing structured data (Europeana, Huygens Institute, IISH, Open Cultuur, …). In particular DANS recently got involved into the design of a general architecture for sharing data among researchers from the
digital humanities (see http://www.clariah.nl/en/). This STSM seeks at giving an answer to the following questions:
* How much of the architectural design of Acropolis can be ported into CLARIAH, and vice-versa ?
* Can the content of DANS archives be incorporated in RES ?
* Could DANS contribute to spreading the usage of the content of RES from within the Netherlands ?
* How can the output created by RES, or CLARIAH, be visualised in order to provide insights into its content ?
It contributed to the goals of WG 4.
