Person Data Repository

2013 Workshop / Monday 29 July, 2013

In this talk, Janna Hennicke introduces the major DFG-funded digital humanities project Person Data Repository, based at the Berlin-Brandenburg Academy for Sciences and Humanities. Janna describes the aims of the project – to create a decentralised and adaptable infrastructure for the storage, management, and retrieval of prosopographical information – and introduces its flexible data model and distributed repository architecture, before demonstrating its extremely clever and user-friendly data entry environment and its beta web application and other GUI tools.
