Project Andvari

Pilot implementation of Project Andvari, an online portal to aggregate digital collections of northern European, early medieval art and artifacts from a range of cultural institutions.

The aim of Project Andvari is to provide a free digital portal for integrated access to dispersed collections of northern European art and artifacts of the early medieval period (4th–12th centuries). Funding is requested to support development, testing, and implementation of a pilot platform that will harvest and aggregate existing metadata records and digital surrogates of objects maintained in the collections of three international partner institutions with representative datasets that participate in linked open data initiatives. Ultimately, Project Andvari will facilitate interdisciplinary research in art, archeology, history, and literary and religious studies, allowing users to study visual culture across media and beyond traditional geographical and disciplinary boundaries. The innovative application of aggregated search methods and enhanced metadata will promote discovery and comparative analyses of artifacts in ways that have not previously been feasible.
