In the framework of Workpackage 6, KU Leuven developed an overview with existing datasets within the ReIReS consortium. This overview serves as a first step towards a unified discovery platform and gives researchers an insight into the material that is available at the partner institutions.
The ReIReS partner institutions house their own collections of manuscripts, documents and rare books and represent relevant collections of Christian, Jewish and Muslim works. The consortium has the ambition of creating a unified data repository and discovery system for the domain of religious studies, based on these collections. This tool could offer researchers everywhere virtual access to the catalogues of collections and libraries from across Europe through one unified discovery platform.
The now developed overview of datasets will function as a registry of resources on the ReIReS website.
