ODSAS is a scientific platform for storing, personalized manipulation and
individual and collective multilayer annotation of digital resources.
The platform is based (but not exclusively intended for) the needs of
social sciences and humanities with particular accent on
The ODSAS platform has two components.
first component is constituted by the technology,
webserving, which is called ODSAS itself and which is hosted.
Funds for hosting the platform have come from various
institutions (CNRS, Maison Asie-Pacifique, Ministry for Research and
Higher Education, CREDO....).
second component is constituted by the program of
organizing the collections and archival sources. This component is
ADAP (Archives Digitales Asie-Pacifique). While ODSAS is not limited to
Pacific and Australian material, the latter are without doubt an
important aspect. Many people have contributed to ADAP.
Over the years, ODSAS has been co-funded by several institutions:
- CNRS-funded staff;
- EHESS-funded staff
(Ecole des Hautes Etudes en Sciences Sociales);
- Staff and digitization equipment is hosted by Aix-Marseille
- Server costs are covered by MAP
(Centre de Recherche et de Documentation sur l'Océanie) is contributing
to cover other regular and exceptional costs;
Additionally, we receive funds from project applications such as Huma-Num, Archives des
(Ministry for Research and Higher Education), etc.
