Use and Re-Use of Digital Cultural Heritage Assets – Interoperability, Repositories and Shared infrastructures is the fifth in a series of international events planned by EAGLE BPN.
The event has been organized by The Cyprus Institute, in collaboration with Heidelberg University (Germany) and Sapienza, University of Rome (Italy) and will feature presentations and hands-on workshops regarding themes of the EAGLE project, led by the project’s Working Groups.
The event is aimed at anyone interested in epigraphy (digital or non-digital) as well as to the establishment and diffusion of general best current practices for digital cultural heritage It seeks to cover many aspects of digital technology applied to inscriptions, from content to management and networking.
EAGLE, The Europeana network of Ancient Greek and Latin Epigraphy is a best-practice network, co-funded by the European Commission under its Information and Communication Technologies Policy Support Program. EAGLE will provide a massive resource for both the curious and the scholarly by the provision of a single user-friendly portal to the inscriptions of the Ancient World.
The EAGLE Best Practice Network is part of Europeana, a multi-lingual online collection of millions of digitized items from European museums, libraries, archives and multi-media collections. EAGLE will collect, in a single readily-searchable database, more than 1.5 million items, currently scattered across 25 EU countries (as well as the east and south Mediterranean). The project will make available the vast majority of the surviving inscriptions of the Greco-Roman world, complete with essential explanatory information and, for the most important items, a translation into English.
