It is aimed at a broad range of Humanities data, characterised by rich text, multimedia, relationships, categorisation, uncertain data, spatial and temporal information, and the need to work collaboratively while maintaining access control. It allows incremental changes in database structure - existing data are not affected - allowing projects to start small and simple and evolve as the research develops.

The Emma B. Andrews Diary Project

Posted by Sarah Ketchley on January 19, 2017

Emma B. Andrews is best remembered for her association with the millionaire lawyer turned archaeologist/art and antiquities collector, Theodore M. Davis. Traveling to Egypt with him between 1889 and 1912, she kept detailed journals of these voyages along the Nile, including his important yet under-reported excavations of 20 significant tombs in the Valley of the Kings. Emma provides a vital commentary on the archaeology and pioneering Egyptologists of the time.

Hofmeister XIX

Posted by arts-humanities.net on March 29, 2015

Research on 19th-century music is hampered by insufficient bibliographical control of printed music. However, the Leipzig publisher Hofmeister published monthly or bi-monthly reports (Monatsberichte) on music publications that permit datings of large numbers of prints after 1829 when the series began: these constitute the single largest inventory of music prints produced in the 19th century. The Monatsberichte are limited by the form in which they were set out and by the fact that no single run of the series exists anywhere in the world.
