Until recently, research addressing questions about culture and identity have depended on musicologists’ abilities to identify potentially relevant pieces of information in archives, libraries and private collections. Because such research is extremely time-consuming, up to now it has hardly been possible to look at larger datasets or to test alternative analyses.

The Common Lab Research Infrastructure for the Arts and Humanities (CLARIAH) project  which came into force in 2014, aims to offer humanities scholars a ‘Common Lab’ that provides access to large collections of digital resources and innovative user–friendly processing tools, thus enabling them to carry out ground-breaking, interdisciplinary research on a large scale.
