First presentation at a public academic conference with Arbeitskreis Deutsch-Niederländische Geschichte, Arbeitskreis Historische Belgienforschung, Fachinformationsdienst Benelux / Low Countries Studies due to Covid-19 with zoom app in a digital format on September 25, 2020.
After the launch and hours in archives and libraries, such as scanners, and behind the screen of the database – finally “public” and presenting first results of WARLUX.
Even the if the project is still work in progress the topic of the presentation focused on the digital approach and use of data. During collecting the documents and improving the data model for nodegoat, structuring and linking data became an essential part of the construction of the data set – and will be one of the most important essences of WARLUX.
The thoughts and comments of the colleagues at the Arbeitskreis Historische Belgienforschung, Fachinformationsdienst Benelux / Low Countries Studies will help to improve and to shape the research structure of WARLUX. Next steps to think about is
- standardised data?
- Geographical uncertainties? Concerning of small places in the USSR or today not existing places
- Linked data – using wikidata? How and to what extent?
- preservation after the project ends
Thank you to the organisers and the interested audience!
