Open Context is a free, open access resource for the electronic publication of primary field research from archaeology and related disciplines. It emerged as a means for scholars and students to easily find and reuse content created by others, which are key to advancing research and education. Open Context's technologies focus on ease of use, open licensing frameworks, informal data integration and, most importantly, data portability.Open Context currently publishes 23 projects.

Arachne is the central object-database of the German Archaeological Institute (DAI). In 2004 the DAI and the Research Archive for Ancient Sculpture at the University of Cologne (FA) joined the effort to support Arachne as a tool for free internet-based research. Arachne's database design uses a model that builds on one of the most basic assumptions one can make about archaeology, classical archaeology or art history: all activities in these areas can most generally be described as contextualizing objects. Arachne tries to avoid the basic mistakes of earlier databases, which limited their object modeling to specific project-oriented aspects, thus creating separated containers of only a small number of objects. All objects inside Arachne share a general part of their object model, to which a more class-specific part is added that describes the specialised properties of a category of material like architecture or topography. Seen on the level of the general part, a powerful pool of material can be used for general information retrieval, whereas on the level of categories and properties, very specific structures can be displayed.

In the Wolfenbüttel Digital Library the Herzog August Bibliothek presents in digital facsimile selected items from its collections which are rare, outstanding, frequently used, or currently most relevant for research. All digitized titles may be accessed not only here, but also via the PICA-OPAC as long as they are monographs. The OPAC allows you to search for digitized books separately by limiting the search options within the database using the term Online Resources. Projects which provide additional indexing comprise a project-specific database, an inventory of digitized titles, information about tools and techniques, and references to literature. Here the main objective is to provide search facilities outside the scope of usual bibliographic description, such as page-related indexing.
