The DARIAH-DE project supports digitally-based research activities in the arts and humanities. With its commitment to digital humanities DARIAH-DE is focused specifically in developing e-infrastructures to provide new ways and methods for the teaching of and research in the arts and humanities. Another general aim of the project is the rationalization and the more effective employment of research data and scientific collections. In cooperation with the Berlin-Brandenburg Academy of Sciences and Humanities, the German Archaeological Institute, the Leibniz Institute of European History and the Göttingen State and University Library the Herzog August Bibliothek is engaged in the following tasks:
Finding a generic definition of the key terms ‘research data in the arts and humanities’ and ‘scientific collections’ approved of by the research community.
Exploring the opportunities and limitations that we are faced with when preparing standardized, interoperable, human and machine readable descriptions of research data and scientific collections.
Conceptualizing, testing and disseminating workflows for the creation of standardized, interoperable, human and machine readable descriptions of research data and scientific collections.
These definitions and standards will lay the foundations for the further development of both the DARIAH-DE Repository, a service for publishing and long-term storage of research data, thus making it accessible to other researchers, and the DARIAH-DE Collection Registry, a tool for generating and publishing standardized descriptions of scientific collections.
