Research Project on

Hispanic Emblematic Literature

This multidisciplinary research project has been developed in collaboration by two research teams:

Database Lab: directed by Nieves R. Brisaboa
Research Team on Hispanic Emblematic Literature: directed by Sagrario López Poza

The Humanities team is composed by researchers coming from the areas of Hispanic and Latin Philology, and History of Art. Their work included the digitization, partial transcription and study of a selection of Hispanic Emblem Books from the 16th-17th centuries. This study produced a wide collection of data, which is of interest to different knowledge areas related to the culture of these centuries.

The Computer Science team has developed the necessary applications to store the obtained data. This team has also developed a user interface to give access to these data through Internet; it represents a Virtual Library, which eases the process of retrieving documents and data, as well as browsing through them.
