Collections as networks.

Zeldenrust, Douwe (2018). Collections as networks, Uncovering information exchanges and information networks in the collections of the Meertens Instituut (KNAW). Paper presented at European Social Science History Conference 2018. Belfast, United Kingdom.

This paper is about uncovering information exchanges and information networks in humanities research collections. Most humanities researchers focus on obtaining data from research collections, without realizing that those collections also can be seen as the results of epistemological experiments. That is: every collection is the outcome of the process of gathering information and therefore interconnected with the presuppositions, foundations and the activities that have led to the knowledge it contains.

A use case will be presented: the ‘Soundbites Collection’ of the Meertens Instituut (Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences).
