EHRI Digital Editions - Documentation

A key goal of the EHRI online editions platform is to develop annotated online editions of documents as a new way of presenting digital archival content. The editions are facilitated by new EHRI tools for digital editing and use and improve upon the EHRI vocabularies and descriptions to generate contextual information displayed to users.

Compared to analogue editions, the freely accessible online editions enable new research approaches and a different reading of the documents. Through metadata-tagging and geo-referencing, the editions do not exclusively follow thematic or chronological patterns; they are searchable and filtered for specific thematic or spatial interests at any time and are contextualised through interactive maps. EHRI platform hopes to support and possibly host third party projects.
