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.

Museums have unique recordings of spoken stories about artworks in their archives, but this ‘oral history’ is often difficult to access. DANS is one of the partners in the project Oral History – Stories at the Museum around Artworks (OH-SMArt). In this project, researchers from various Dutch institutions will greatly improve this accessibility. The project is financed by the Platform Digital Infrastructure for Social Sciences and Humanities (PDI-SSH).

Within the SSHOC project a question data bank for Ethnic and Migrant Minority Surveys has been developed. The pilot version of the EMM QDB is now live!

Save the Date! In September, DANS will be organising a train-the-trainer event on using Dataverse as an archive or discovery platform. The event is part of the CESSDA training activities and targeted at data stewards and data managers working at (CESSDA) archives or institutional repositories using Dataverse.

The NWO Domain Board Social Sciences and Humanities (SSH) has decided to expand the opportunities for researchers in the Open Competition. The funding instrument will soon be given an XS variant, which will be opened before the summer.

DANS is partner in the 4CH project, which initiated SUM – Save the Ukraine Monuments. SUM was launched to transfer the digital documentation of Ukraine’s cultural heritage to secure servers in the EU. We started in silence, but now it is high time to let everyone know what is being done.

DANS has launched a survey in the framework of the consortium to map out the Dutch heritage sciences. We invite members of the network to fill out the survey and to share their needs regarding the network.
