Notes et dépouillement

Digital databases have become an unseparable part of research in performing arts. They help to arrange and navigate through sources, to find connections and to defy geographical and other barriers. The researchers use not only the databases created by institutions such as libraries, museums and archives, but more and more they also actively participate in creating databases based on their own concepts and research focus. Such databases are research based and relational, connecting several types of sources and archival institutions.
The aim of this workshop is to present various strategies in creating a research database in the area of performing arts (theatre, music, dance, costume), both from conceptual and technological perspective, to share experiences and examples of good practice, in order to improve our own work – which is still in progress.
