The ARTE Scenario

ARTE is a community of scholars located all over the world, working together to establish a new discipline that merges experiences from research in medicine, humanities, social sciences and communication. In order to achieve their objectives these researchers require a common background knowledge base.

The DILIGENT experiment will provide them, in a short time framework, a cost-effective instrument for setting up digital libraries, i.e., common multimedia knowledge repositories equipped with a number of services, specifically tailored to the needs of this community.

The ARTE community is represented in DILIGENT by the Scuola Normale Superiore (SNS), one of several observers contributing rich archives of texts and images. Audio-visual content is being provided by the Italian National Broadcasting RAI Educational.
