Collecta +

The project

The Collecta + Project is part of a larger research program in digital humanities, devoted to the collection of François-Roger de Gaignières (1642-1715). After launching the website www.collecta.fr and its database which provides a reconstitution of the collection now dispersed, Collecta + has defined three main objectives, in partnership with the ANG-G project (Digital Geolocated Archive – the Gaignières collection) sponsored by the ANR (Research Project Funding) within the framework of the IRHT-CNRS.

The first goal is to enrich the database, giving priority to documents relating to the Ile-de-France region. The complete digitization of the Gaignières collection kept in the Bodleian Library of Oxford –1,600 drawings of medieval and modern monuments, mainly from the Paris region– offers a considerable breakthrough in the knowledge of the region’s collection and heritage.

Secondly, we will examine the contribution of geolocation to bring out a better understanding of the collection and the monuments concerned. A mobile application based on the drawings of the Gaignières collection will be the central tool of a participatory research method to launch an inquiry on local heritage. The collection of geolocated datas will offer the opportunity to conduct a large-scale study on the history of viewpoints.

The third objective is to promote interchanges with other projects or partners of the DIM STCN, in particular E-signa and the Bibale database of the IRHT-CNRS. Sharing digital ressources and tools, we will accentuate the interoperability of academic programmes and we will ultimately offer a common platform as a reference frame for research on regional, national and international levels.
