Linked Open Data

The management of an archive or collection is truly custom work. We don't see isolated collections, but a collection as a part of a worldwide network of information. Objects in Memorix are described in such a way that they are highly searchable, and understandable for third parties. Stay connected to share concepts, data and research. Our data is designed to be linked and shared.

In 2011, Picturae developed an optional transcription crowdsourcing platform: VeleHanden.nl, or HeritageHelpers.co.uk. A large pool of volunteers are available to describe photos, transcribe manuscripts or enter other data, all from their home computer.
