UNIVERSEUM WORKING GROUP ON DATA-BASES AND PORTALS
Universeum’s working group on databases and portals for University collections will have its first get together at the Universeum Meeting 2016, in Athens.
The main objective is to create a network for sharing knowledge and experience. We would like to discuss and work on three things in this group:
- We would like to produce a document with best practices and an accompanying contact list.
- To look into the technical issues that come with building a portal, such as “which infrastructure should we use?”, “What fields do we use to present objects to the public?”, “which standards do we need, and should we work towards using the same standards on an European level?” and “the pros and cons of a harvesting model”.
- Working together in presenting our collections on a European level: what are the possibilities?
Chairs: Esther Boeles, Dutch Foundation for Academic Heritage, Delphine Issenman, University of Strasbourg, France
