BDČZ - Bibliography of the History of the Czech Lands

This is a continuous programme of creation, processing and evaluation of a comprehensive bibliographic database of Czech studies literature. It is a continuation of the project of field (historical) bibliography which has been continuously lasting in the Czech Lands since 1905. Nowadays modern methods are applied to these processes and data provided in the framework of this project undoubtedly belong to essential sources of information for historical sciences and related fields.

The aim of our project is to further develop online accessible database of the Czech historical bibliography as interim and retrospective bibliography (Bibliography of the Czech Lands history, abbr. BDČZ) and publishing of other partial outputs in printed format or on data carriers.

Bibliography of the History of the Czech Lands has become part of Digital Research Infrastructure for Language Technologies, Arts and Humanities (LINDAT/CLARIAH-CZ).

LINDAT/CLARIAH-CZ has been established as a unification of two research infrastructures, LINDAT/CLARIN and DARIAH-CZ. LINDAT/CLARIAH-CZ is a joined, distributed Czech national node of the pan-European CLARIN ERIC (Common Language Resources and Technology Infrastructure) and DARIAH ERIC (Digital Research Infrastructure for the Arts and Humanities) networks.

It consists of 11 top research organizations that are active in the domain of humantiies and arts in the Czech Republic – in linguistics, history and historical bibliography, culture and science on culture, history of arts, philosophy, film culture, visual arts, musicology and history of music, ethnology, folklore, archeology and also in some cross-disciplinary domains.

The aim of LINDAT/CLARIAH-CZ is to allow for an open-access to digitalized data resources of the given disciplines for broad research community and for students both in the Czech Republic and in EU.
