From Processing to Public Service: The Digital Humanities Center at the American Academy in Rome
Digital Humanities Center (DHC) is the new infrastructure which will serve to streamline the Academy’s cataloging system and will make publically available the Academy’s archival resources through a single, online interface by way of the Academy’s website. Intent of this project is to unify different types of materials and collections.
The DHC will contain thousands of descriptions (metadata) of archival objects and digital objects (photographs and digitized texts), it will soon be a resource for scholars and other interested individuals, accessible from virtually anywhere. In the presentation it will be briefly explained the workflow: inventory, cataloguing, digitization and uploading of visual resources.
