The project Norwegian Correspondences aims to link individual letters and other correspondence media not only to each other but to correspondences across all of Norway, Europe and beyond. It uses the CorrespSearch infrastructure, which employs Linked Open Data standards. Correspondence metadata from digitized letters, digital as well as printed scholarly editions is delivered in the Correspondence Metatdata Interchange Format (CMIF). Via the CorrespSearch web interface, data can be easily searched—or queried via an open API.
