Many projects in the digital humanities need specialized tools to store and work with their data. MUSE is a digital humanities project researching film costume patterns that uses a custom-built data repository. MUSE4Music is another digital humanities project following the methodology from MUSE. Because the data for the MUSE4Music project has a different structure, a completely new custom data repository had to be built. Although the methodology used in both projects is generic, the tools used are not. Building a custom data repository for a similar project requires a huge upfront investment. A generic data repository could solve this problem and enable a variety of different projects that use similar methods as the MUSE project. This thesis is about the development of such a generic MUSE4Anything repository. Experiences from both the MUSE and MUSE4Music project are used to inform the implementation. The MUSE4Anything repository supports completely user definable ontologies. For this purpose the MUSE4Anything repository contains a taxonomy editor and an editor for the object types of the ontology.
