The aim is to develop systems and tools which will support the accessibility and use over time of digital cultural and scientific resources. This requires work to:

  • Support the emerging complexity of digital cultural and scientific objects and repositories, through enriched conceptual representations, and advanced access methods.
  • Explore how to preserve the availability of digital resources over time, through novel concepts, techniques and tools.
