The network of distributed research laboratories constituting Dariah.lab is designed on the basis of a research agenda developed by the consortium members. It consistes of Source Laboratory, Automatic Enrichement Laboratory, Supervised Semantic Discovery Laboratory, Intelligent Analysis and Interpretation Laboratory, and Advanced Visualization Laboratory.

In the Source Laboratory, the The Institute of Art of the Polish Academy of Sciences will make available two valuable resources:

“Catalog of Monuments of Art in Poland”

Curated by dr Marcin Zgliński, will include digital versions of approximately 200 volumes of a series published since 1951. It is based on an inventory of all art monuments outside museums and private collections (architecture and movable equipment) and is an intermediate form between a detailed topographical inventory and a catalogue. The repository will enable a search through the digitized and verified content from all published volumes.

“Unique Visual Materials for the Study of the Cultural Heritage of Judaism in the Former Poland“

Curated by dr Piotr Lasek, is a collection of materials documenting presence of Jews in Poland. It includes photographic and drawing documentation, created before the Second World War, produced by Polish organizations and institutions involved in the protection and inventory of art monuments (Towarzystwo Opieki nad Zabytkami Przeszłości, Wydział Zabytków Towarzystwa Straży Kresowej, Centralne Biuro Inwentaryzacji Zabytków Sztuki, urzędy okręgowych konserwatorów zabytków).
