How do searching for audiovisual sources and storytelling interrelate? That is one of the questions that drives the researchers of DIVE+. DIVE+ is an open linked exploratory search browser that facilitates the exploration of diverse archival and museum collections, and allows researchers to investigate how different media objects, events, people and concepts can be compared, connected, and contextualized.
But how do humanities researchers create narratives, and develop research questions when they use the possibilities offered by linked data? Based on previous research into the search and storytelling practices of media professionals who use digital audio-visual archives, this presentation’s starting point is the notion that searching for audio-visual material (the search technologies used) changes the stories one can tell.
In this presentation and subsequent discussion, we focus on exploring, together with the audience, how DIVE+ allows exploration and narrative creation, in order to not only better understand the research process of humanities researchers, but also provide recommendations to further develop DIVE+. We will take a hands-on approach, and use a number of tasks, to explore DIVE+.
