Integrating DANS metadata in the EHRI-portal

18 May 2022

On the website of the EHRI-project a blog is posted that describes how metadata provided by DANS was integrated into the EHRI-Portal. The intention was to create a fully automated “pipeline” between the DANS data catalogue and the EHRI-Portal.

The integration of metadata of DANS in the EHRI-portal consists of 3 steps. First, records have to be selected that are suitable for integration in the Portal. Second, the exchange-format between source (local catalogue) and destination (the Portal) has to be fixed, and, third, the data exchange protocol has to be agreed upon. The blog contains detailed information on this process, read the complete blog here.
