New platform for accessing and investigating historical data in a transnational fashion
CENDARI Project and MPDL agreed on cooperation
In April 2012 Dr. Jennifer Edmond, of the Trinity Long Room Hub (Trinity College Dublin) and project coordinator of the CENDARI Project and Dr. Frank Sander, head of Max Planck Digital Library (MPDL) agreed to cooperate on CENDARI Project.
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.
