COST Action IS1005 Medioevo Europeo. Medieval Cultures and Technological Resources.

Medieval Cultures on the Web. Interoperability Through Text and Manuscript Databases.

In Europe and in North-America several projects are trying to handle the problem of the multitude of data-bases concerning medieval texts and manuscripts. Different aims and standards are proposed by networks of philologists, codicologists, librarians. The research about medieval cultures will depend more and more on such decisions. Presenting an Italian project of interoperability, the workshop will provide a discussion about goals and practices for the next future.

chair Agostino Paravicini Bagliani www.medioevoeuropeo.eu

The main objective of the Action is to increase accessibility to and integration of medieval research results and tools through improved technological instruments and skills. Achieving the Action’s objectives is made possible through the collaboration of key European institutes that have developed large scale databases, become familiar with related problems and attempted to identify targeted solutions.
