Two New Content Services on the 1956 Institute Portal

Presenter 1
Zoltan Lux
1956 Institute

The 50th anniversary of the 1956 Hungarian Revolution encouraged many new written and electronic works. We have now created a database of these works (books, films, websites and conferences) and of reviews of them (www.rev.hu/reviews). The photographic documentation database has taken a further step forward with the project entitled “Processing of Photographic Life’s Works”. Our plans for this are to process the work of four to six living photographers each year. It will include making a life interview with each photographer, which can be read and heard on the internet service. The photographs selected to present the life’s work can be ordered for various uses or even commented upon online. The content service will also be accessible in English. (Under development: www.rev.hu/photographers.) Both the projects will be developed further. The subject-area of the “Review” database will be broadened, with the eventual intention of having it cover historical publications on contemporary Hungarian history (if possible in two languages). This is more a problem of content development. We would also like to adapt the framework system of the “Photographic Life’s Works” database to our earlier photo-documentary database (http://server2001.rev.hu/oha/index_e.html).
