ETANA-DL project

April 11th, 2006 by Chuck Jones

Some of you may find this documentation on the ETANA-DL project (with which  I am marginally connected) interesting.  This DL part of this project is headed by Ed Fox at Virginia Tech.

“This research proposes to develop a digital library (DL) for ancient Near Eastern studies with two archaeological components: DigBase (DB) – a repository and an archive for archaeological data from the Near East and  beyond, and DigKit (DK) – a compatible field tool for collecting and recording archaeological data during archaeological surveys and excavations.  DB is a model-based, extensible, archaeological componentized DL that will  manage complex archaeological information sources based on the client-server  paradigm of the Open Archives Initiative Protocol for Metadata Harvesting (OAI-PMH). DK is a compatible field tool for collecting, recording and exposing archaeological data in an OAI compliant manner during archaeological surveys and excavations.”
