» Going Meta on Metadata Journal of Digital Humanities Michael J. Kramer I once joked to an archivist that all I really do as a historian is add meta-metadata to the archival database. What I meant was that if we understand metadata—the information that accompanies artifacts—as not merely descriptive, but also already on its way to interpretation, then what is historical scholarship but a further extension of this elaboration of the evidentiary record? The joke was intended as humorous (at least for the geeky among us) because typically historical work gets separated from, and often privileged over, archival labor.

Digital Humanities: Data modelling and metadata - Projects - Research - Home - Herzog August Bibliothek Wolfenbüttel Project in the cluster “digital research infrastructure” in the research network Marbach – Weimar – WolfenbüttelIn collaboration with the digital humanities projects in Weimar and Marbach, a digital research infrastructure is being built for the MWW research association. The data that will be integrated into this research environment encompasses not only the central digital holdings of the three institutions, but also comprises resources from specialist databases and research projects as well. Thus, for the first time, it will be possible to present together, in terms of scholarly content, high-value research data. Extensive search options and innovative tools will moreover open up new ways for scholars to access and work with the material. To achieve this, the metadata – either that already connected to the holdings or that which still needs to be developed – is to be integrated into the virtual research centre and thus merged together.

Teachers, moviegoers, etc. can use them to exchange multimedia comments and analyses about video documents.
