CERES Computer Café: Building research databases

CERES Palais, room "Bagdad" (2.10)

Many humanities projects start with the collection of material. In order to structure the available information, databases can be helpful. The choice of a database system as well as the design of the database itself – which information will be captured, which basic types of data can be distinguished (e.g., objects, places, persons), how do different kinds of information refer to each other – heavily depend on the research question. However, some basic principles usually affect most projects.
