Project Summary

The “Papyrus-Portal Deutschland” is a project that aims to provide the user with both the opportunity of an efficient and effective search of all digitized and electronically catalogued papyrus collections in Germany and a unified presentation of the search results with the most important information on the particular papyrus. This includes links to the local home databases in order to provide the user with more detailed data on each piece. The “Papyrus-Portal Deutschland” equalizes the different information technologies of the original databases and presents the search results in a standard format. A standard to record the metadata has been established. The “Papyrus-Portal Deutschland” is compatible to APIS and other meta-databases. Using the Open Source Software “MyCoRe”, and incorporating the experience from the Papyrus-Projekt Halle-Jena-Leipzig, work on the “Papyrus-Portal Deutschland” has started with the financial support of the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft.
