Establishing a webspace – platform, resource, factory
Not only does the SPIN webspace aim to offer the usual services of noticeboard, on-line accessible information container, announcement platform and news forum, it is also intended to provide
- – a space for informal ‘working paper’ publications and preprints in PDF form
- – a portal for access to primary sources in digitized form (cf. nt 5)
- – a resource with a searchable, interactive bibliography and a database of historical figures (philologists, artists and intellectuals) possibly linked to a portrait gallery and image base.
- – a ‘factory’ workfloor where initiatives for research projects, from funding applications to the preparation of publications, can be worked out in workgroups, and where materials can be pooled in WiKi form towards SPIN’s core project, the Encyclopedia of Romantic Nationalism in Europe (cf. nr 9).
