DCCD Repository News


Within ARIADNE new functionality has been added to the DCCD user interface:

  • The home page shows registered organizations on the geographical map
  • Queries now also result in a chronological data overview (see right side of the page)
[placed December 2014]

Open-accces metadata in the DCCD repository will be made available to other heritage sites, as part of  EU-project ARIADNE (2013-2017). This entails the addition of harvesting options to the DCCD repository. Only unlocked information will be harvested. This work is done by DANS.
