Mission and Objective
The planned portal "E-varamu" is a semantics-based search engine, which allows for access to related information from all databases of Estonian "memory institutions" - librarys, archives, collections and other information relevant to the research community. The portal will use extensive cross-reference methods between several databases, connect the search items with (science) literature catalogues and allow for saving querys and user-preferences. In addition to the portal, the infrastructure will feature a mass deacidification centre for conservation, and a large mass deacidification centre for written literature. The infrastructure creates the capability to digitize holdings of memory institutions and make the data more accessible for end-users through portal.
