Co-creation Outreach Initiatives - NIHU "Digital Humanities" (DH) Projects
NIHU "Digital Humanities" (DH) Projects
NIHU considers the promotion of Digital Humanities (DH) as an important issue for the next six years, starting in FY2022. The DH Projects not only aim to further deepen humanities research promoted by each NIHU institute using information technology but also make research results and materials available to society and facilitate new co-creation. Based on forming and strengthening of DH research cooperation in Japan and overseas, these projects will play a key role in promoting and establishing DH use across Japan.
nihuBridge is a portal site for sharing and utilizing diverse research resources disseminated by the NIHU and associated institutes.
The current website consists of “6 Institutional Database Link,” “NIHU Accumulated Data,” “NIHU Research Resource Link,” “Large Digital Resource Link,” and “Integrated Search.” It not only allows users to acquire datasets and collect information by searching and cross-referencing databases but also provides information from directories and APIs.
In the future, the aim is to link internal information and evolve it into a platform that promotes data utilization.
