Reference data is a crucial element of data curation in the cultural heritage and humanities sector. Using reference data brings multiple benefits, such as consistent cataloguing, easier lookup and interaction with the data, or compatibility with other data collections that use the same reference data. Overall, the use of reference data can support the publication of FAIR data - data that is findable, accessible, interoperable and reusable.
SARI's Reference Data Service (RDS) was built using metaphacts software and provides researchers with a central data hub that hosts commonly used reference data sets and can be accessed through an intuitive, Google-like interface.
