Huma-Num, the Very Large Facility on Digital Humanities launches NAKALONA, a software package which connects the content management system OMEKA (created by the Roy Rosenzweig Center for History and New Media, George Mason University, Virginia, USA) and NAKALA, a service created by Huma-Num.
Nakalona combines the power of Omeka for editing and displaying digital data and the features of Nakala’s repository for sharing data and metadata in an interoperable way.
The main goal of NAKALONA is to offer the possibility of sharing and displaying the data and metadata already stored inside Nakala while taking advantage of OMEKA’s possibilities such as its powerful search engine.
With this software package, the TGIR Huma-Num, which already provides several services for documents and research data processing in Humanities and Social Sciences, offers a consistent and complete chain for managing and disseminating data and metadata. In addition, your data are ready to be crawled by other services such as ISIDORE, Gallica (BNF) and so on.
This software package is entirely managed and administered by the TGIR Huma-Num team, and provided as a Software As A Service (SAAS).
