Research projects using the data of this digital archive
Since one of Kyoto University Library Network's missions is to contribute to the promotion of academic research by making our rare collections open access, we welcome researchers to use our digital data for their research.
Here are examples of research projects using our digital data.
|IIIF Manifests for Buddhist Studies by The SAT Daizōkyō Text Database Committee||This is a website released by the SAT Daizōkyō Text Database Committee to share IIIF Manifest URIs related to the research in Buddhism. Clicking "Kyoto University Rare Materials Digital Archive" from Attributions can filter the list to show Kyoto University's holdings only. The list includes multiple icons, each linking to a different IIIF-compliant viewer to show digital images. The committee also provides the SAT Daizōkyō Text Database, a database of the full text of 85 volumes of Taishō Shinshū Daizōkyō (大正新脩大藏經).|
|Collection of Facial Expressions, Center for Open Data in the Humanities (CODH)||
Collection of Facial Expressions by CODH is the project to gather clippings of facial expressions from art works in order to utilize them for the research in history of art, especially artistic styles. Facial expression is one of the most important research objects, because their styles tend to show characteristics of artists or their studios. Comparing facial expression clippings from art works across the world, mainly Japanese picture scrolls, enables identifying the artists or studios that created the art works and finding the influence on each other.
