A collaborative relational database infrastructure for Humanities Researchers

This initiative responds to the growing need for a collaborative database infrastructure for Humanities researchers. Increasing digitization and access to large data collections have given a boost to Digital Humanities projects. Within these types of projects, there is an increasing demand for a relational database management system (RDBMS) that can be used in an easily accessible, user-centric way to collect, link and analyse digital data. An upgrade of our internal server to a server maintained by ICTS is therefore crucial in order to allow multiple (and often interdisciplinary) project databases to be developed and collaboratively edited. By purchasing a volume license for database software, humanities researchers from different fields of study can continue to use this RDBMS and new research projects can benefit from our expertise to efficiently set up their own database projects.
