Creating digital access to historical sources: A joint project presentation

In this presentation, Christoph Rauch, will introduce the online portal Qalamos, which provides direct access to metadata and digitised copies of Oriental manuscript collections in Germany. The talk gives an overview of workflows, standardization processes (e.g. authority data, metadata) and discusses challenges of developing a platform in collaboration with various partners.

Larissa Schmid will be presenting the project “IN_CONTEXT: Colonial Histories and Digital Collections” which seeks to secure funding for the digitisation of historical colonial sources and for devising a virtual platform for the study of colonial histories.
