Sarah Wagner (FAU Competence Center Research Data and Information) talks about object documentation practices and how they have changed over time.

The lecture series “Praxis der Digital Humanities” will take place within the framework of the Master 'Digital Humanities'. It is open to all interested parties, also from other courses or from outside the university, and will be designed as a video conference with lecture and discussion possibility.

Collections have been documented since the Middle Ages. Once recorded by hand, today objects are documented using various digital methods and made globally accessible. There are more than five centuries between the historical inventories and today's knowledge graphs. So how have object documentation practices changed over time? 

The article examines various media, models and technologies up to the present day, including examples from the DFG project on the Berlin Kunstkammer (2018-2022, https://berlinerkunstkammer.de/) and NFDI4Objects (since 2023, https://www.nfdi4objects.net/).
