In partnership with Prof. Dr. Stefan Schmunk (Chair of Information Science and Digital Library at University of Applied Sciences Darmstadt (h_da)) Trier University is responsible for  task area 4 “Data Literacy” (DL) in the NFDI4Memory consortium. It aims to develop a DL competence profile for historically oriented researchers, a DL counselling network and a sustainable and certified DL training catalogue comprising training courses and materials geared towards specific target groups. DL has a distinctive meaning for historically oriented disciplines: sound historical scholarship depends on a rigorous and careful application of the “critical historical method” as the basis for historical hermeneutics, historical knowledge production and the communication of knowledge about the past. Historians need to learn how to evaluate and to re-use historical research data produced with digital methodologies and based on digital source material.
