 Obiettivo del progetto (Objective)

'The Collaborative EuropeaN Digital Archive Infrastructure (CENDARI) will provide and facilitate access to existing archives and resources in Europe for the study of medieval and modern European history through the development of an ‘enquiry environment’. This environment will increase access to records of historic importance across the European Research Area, creating a powerful new platform for accessing and investigating historical data in a transnational fashion overcoming the national and institutional data silos that now exist. It will leverage the power of the European infrastructure for Digital Humanities (DARIAH) bringing these technical experts together with leading historians and existing research infrastructures (archives, libraries and individual digital projects) within a programme of technical research informed by cutting edge reflection on the impact of the digital age on scholarly practice. The enquiry environment that is at the heart of this proposal will create new ways to discover meaning, a methodology not just of scale but of kind. It will create tools and workspaces that allow researchers to engage with large data sets via federated multilingual searches across heterogeneous resources while defining workflows enabling the creation of personalized research environments, shared research and teaching spaces, and annotation trails, amongst other features. This will be facilitated by multilingual authority lists of named entities (people, places, events) that will harness user involvement to add intelligence to the system. Moreover, it will develop new visual paradigms for the exploration of patterns generated by the system, from knowledge transfer and dissemination, to language usage and shifts, to the advancement and diffusion of ideas.'

Introduzione (Teaser)

An EU-funded project will deliver a new digital infrastructure for historical research materials. The researcher-friendly system draws upon 800 European source agencies, initially for 2 pilot areas concerning the mediaeval period and World War I.

Descrizione progetto (Article)

Even with the development of digital document archives, studying historical materials can still be difficult given the various separate collections. Thus, Europe needs an integrated digital research infrastructure.

Aiming to create such a system is the project 'Collaborative European digital / archival infrastructure' (http://www.cendari.eu (CENDARI)). Over 4 years to early 2016, the 14-member consortium will develop the necessary systems. The resources will incorporate analogue networks, while also being easy to use and able to meet researcher requirements.

The two pilot foci include mediaeval resources and those dealing with World War I. Additional objectives include raising awareness about the project, developing the required computational methods and administering a transnational researcher programme.

During the first 18 months, the group began with establishing the project management structure. To date, overall progress is on track. With dissemination being a key objective, an early milestone was establishment of the project website.

The team established an archive, listing 800 European cultural heritage institutions holding relevant materials. Subsequently, the project created a data integration tool. The first option proved unsuitable, leading to the refinement and adoption of appropriate alternatives. The first stable release of the Archival Description Toolkit has been delivered.

Numerous data management and visualisation tools were assessed, as were interface options. The team is working on multilingual search capability and other functionalities. In aiming to meet the needs of researchers, the project investigated archival research practices. Hosting a summer school for scholars was part of the investigation.

During the present reporting period, the project issued the first call under its Transnational Access programme. An initial group of seven researchers were selected to join the project as of July 2013.

The CENDARI project will yield an integrated historical research infrastructure dealing with European historical resources covering two pilot periods. The resulting tool will foster historical enquiry in an easy-to-use way.
