A bit of history

DocExplore is the result of an academic project of the same name, initiated by computer science laboratories LITIS (University of Rouen, France) and EDA (University of Kent, U.K.) in 2009, funded by the Interreg IVa program. To help define and test our software, the project involved historians and archivists, in particular: the GRHIS (University of Rouen), the Rouen Public Libraries, CMEMS (University of Kent) and the Archives of the Canterbury Cathedral.
