The participants of the IT-Colloquium "Litlink: A Cue Card System in a Research Environment of Collaborative Work, Online Publishing and GIS", Heidelberg February 26th 2010



A drupal7 based online database with enhanced collaborative tools is developed in cooperation with the ePorte project of University of Toronto, Scarborough (UTSC) and CEU Budapest, see LoKiHweb.



In order to maximise both its internal efficiency and its interaction with the scientific community, Transcultural Studies (TS) collaborates with the Cluster “Asia and Europe in a Global Context” and other partners within Heidelberg University. Together with these and other German academic institutions, it contributes to the development of the Heidelberg Research Architecture (HRA). The HRA combines different functions for collaborative, transcultural research: data storage and access, information retrieval and analysis, collaboration and E-Learning. The GIS (Geographical Information System) part of the system (Geotwain) will allow tracking of persons, terms, ideas and objects. 


Transcultural Studies also cooperates with Litlink in the development of the system Litlink as an end-user solution to manage and share primary and secondary sources. Ultimately the system shall be able to inter-act with the HRA & eCue. In the development of Litlink, TS collaborates with the Interdisziplinären Zentrum für wissenschaftliches Rechnen (IWR) at Heidelberg University. The focus is on the further development into a multi-role software for knowledge management and -sharing in the humanities (of literature, different types of sources, objects, images, persons and places). The cooperation focuses also on improved possibilities for collaborative work from different locations (some of them with but very weak internet connectivity), visualisation (for instance mind-mapping), interaction with the afore-mentioned HRA and e-porte(collaborative work and online-publishing. In order to muster best possible support for this project, an international workshop was organized in February 2010 reuniting the development team of Litlink, HRA & e-porte and specialists from the different fields the future development is aiming at.
