Symposium: Repository of Archaeological Reports -- Promoting the Digitization and Usage of Archaeological Research Reports

2009-11-27 (Fri) 1:00 p.m. - 5:30 p.m.

Archaeological research reports published in Japan are sources of very important basic data for archaeology and history, but their circulation is limited. Thus, it cannot be said that we make good use of such reports for education, research, or academic research activities.

The archaeological data repository project aims to digitize and publish all such research reports on the Internet. A diversified, flexible, and universal structure can be created by using items in the abstracts of reports as meta data and linking them to digital reports.

In this symposium, beginning with lectures and case reports from various stakeholders, we will consider how to construct an environment in which paper books and electronic media function in a mutually complementary manner, and how information about our valuable cultural heritage and assets can be provided through the internet and used for education, research, surveys, and society.
