The digital database MITOS (https://www.mitos.edu.gr) is aimed at researchers, scholars and online visitors looking for pictorial and secretarial testimonies of Greek music, dance and performing arts from the prehistoric to the modern times.
The digital database of pictorial and literature sources, MITOS, is the collection, documentation and cataloging of pictorial sources related to Greek music, dance and performing arts. This database was created under the need to design and implement a management tool for the information related to the Music Icon Archive. Therefore, since the first year of the Music Icon Archive’s operation, a digital documentation base for musical and iconographic sources has been designed and implemented, which received its first recording in May 1996.
Over the years, its design and operations have been revised repeatedly to meet the ever-evolving demands of cataloging, which has gradually included a wide range of related material involving about 10,000 entries from pictorial and literature sources from Greece and its influence areas. In its current form the structure and functions of the digital database MITOS, allows users to systematize their searches according to the criteria that interest them, whether they relate to the subject matter of the musical performance or to theirs pictorial and musical parameters.
The development of the above digital databases was made with a single multimedia documentation platform. This technology allows us to manage different documentation needs depending on the objects of each collection. The application consists of two large Modules. The first can only be accessed by collections managers and registrants. It is customized to suit the needs of the documentation. The second module is a multilingual web publishing application for scholars, researchers and web visitors. The entire database is ensured by a security system (users, roles, credentials management), task monitoring and data security.
