RemBench A Digital Workbench for Rembrandt Research


The goal of this project is to demonstrate how (art) historians can benefit from linking a pivotal CLARIN resource, namely eLaborate, which adheres to ISOCat, to resources created by museums, archives and libraries, which adhere to other standards for metadata. For that purpose, we intend to construct a demonstrator that connects a number of databases centred around the life and art of Rembrandt van Rijn. In this project we will demonstrate how an initial version of the Rembrandt Documents (RemDoc) database, built as an eLaborate application, can serve as an integrated tool for art history research by virtue of its coupling with related resources created by the Rijksbureau voor Kunsthistorische Documentatie (RKD), as well as with a standard university library catalogue.
