CENDARI involves a broad collaboration between historians, research infrastructures and technical experts, many of whom have been working together towards the consolidation of e-humanities infrastructures in the context of DARIAH. All are contributing building blocks to the construction of the CENDARI enquiry environment, an innovative system that will change the way we view historical research.

The CENDARI platform will provide centralised access to previously fragmented European resources, such as archives and libraries. The advent of digitisation programmes already enables scholars to access collections online, but in CENDARI the emphasis will be on drawing together material from disparate sources and in various digital formats, into a consolidated environment for research.

Powerful tools and services will underpin this interactive search environment. Proposed functionalities include multilingual search operations across heterogeneous data sets, indexes of named entities (people, places or events), personalisation features, shared research spaces and information visualisation tools.

Building bridges between highly dispersed archives and collections is just the start. CENDARI will support transnational and comparative approaches across disciplines, locations and modalities of scholarship, creating a research space where key aspects of our shared history can be placed in a truly European context.
