The aim of the DFG project “Digitally Networking Performing Arts Media Libraries” is digitally bringing together metadata on performing arts audio-visual digital materials, which are dispersed across theatre and dance studies departments in universities, art schools and media archives all over Germany. By setting up a central research access point via the FID portal www.performing-arts.eu, it will be possible to research information on the audio-visual media and the performances, shows and performing arts events represented in them
The project will focus on the following aspects:
The digital accessibility and curation of media library metadata is a central concern of the media libraries project. In addition to the media library metadata of the project partners – the ITI Germany and the TFM Vienna – further metadata from data partners will be integrated or merged in order to publish the largest possible amount of freely accessible media library metadata.
