The 'Papyrus Portal'

The 'Papyrus Portal' is a project that enables the user with both the opportunity of an efficient and effective search of all digitized and electronically catalogued papyrus collections in Germany and an unified presentation of the search results with the most important information on the particular papyrus. This includes links to the local databases with more detailed data. The 'Papyrus Portal' equalizes the different information technologies of the original databases and presents the search results in a standard format. A standard to record the metadata has been established. The 'Papyrus Portal' is compatible to the Advanced Papyrological Information System (APIS) and other meta-databases. Using the Open Source Software MyCoRe , and incorporating the experience from the Papyrus Project Halle-Jena-Leipzig , the 'Papyrus Portal' was established with funds of the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft.
