Making unstructured archive collections suitable for research is one of the core activities of Huygens ING and IISH. In recent years gigantic quantities of data have become available through the digitisation of historical documents, literary works, structured information and visual objects. Sharing data therefore becomes increasingly important in the humanities. Data often differs by location, period and social context, and shows wide variations in vocabulary, format and completeness. Our digital data managers interlink this data and converts the idiosyncratic classification into common structures. Only then does it lend itself for new research questions and hypotheses.
