Parsing and Matching Dates in VIAF

Abstract The Virtual International Authority File (OCLC Online Computer Library Center 2013) http://viaf.org is built from dozens of authority files with tens of millions of names in more than 150 million authority and bibliographic records expressed in multiple languages, scripts and formats. One of the main tasks in VIAF is to bring together personal names which may have various dates associated with them, such as birth, death or when they were active. These dates can be quite complicated with ranges, approximations, BCE dates, different scripts, and even different calendars. Analysis of the nearly 400,000 unique date strings in VIAF led us to a parsing technique that relies on only a few basic patterns for them. Our goal is to correctly interpret at least 99% of all the dates we find in each of VIAF’s authority files and to use the dates to facilitate matches between authority records., Python source code for the process described here is available at https://github.com/OCLC-Developer-Network/viaf-dates.

Abstract The University of Victoria Libraries started archiving websites in 2013, and it quickly became apparent that many scholarly websites being produced by faculty, especially in the digital humanities, were going to prove very challenging to effectively capture and play back. This article will provide an overview of web archiving and explore the considerable legal and technical challenges of implementing a web archiving initiative at a research library, using the University of Victoria’s implementation of Archive-it, a web archiving service from the Internet Archive, as a case study, with a special focus on capturing complex, interactive websites that scholars are creating to disseminate their research in new ways.

Date 2014
Accessed 2014-10-17 18:49:04
Abstract The site of Kınık Höyük lies in the southern fringes of ancient Cappadocia, in the modern province of Niğde. In ancient times Southern Cappadocia represented the main intersection of the roads to the Taurus passes, which connected the Central Anatolian plateau to the Mediterranean Sea and the Northern Levant. Given this strategic position, the region was continuously occupied and traversed since Prehistory, becoming especially crucial to the history of Hittite, Neo-Hittite, Persian, Hellenistic, Roman and Medieval periods. During the Middle Iron Age (9th-8th BCE), believed to be the height of the activity at Kınık Höyük, the settlement was located at the heart of the kingdom of Tuwana, a poorly understood Neo-Hittite polity documented so far by monumental inscriptions in Southern Cappadocia and some references in contemporary Assyrian records. The particular position of Kınık also makes it a potentially attractive stop on modern tourist itineraries. In fact, just to the north are found the most traditional destinations of Cappadocia; e.g. Göreme, Avanos, Üçhisar and the Underground Cities. Despite such a high potential from both a historical and cultural point of view, Southern Cappadocia was still an underexplored region until the 2011, when a joint American, Italian and Turkish excavation project started at Kınık Höyük. In the three years since, the potential of the site has been realized and the team's initial findings have proven very promising for better understanding this crucial region.

Abstract An Archival Resource Key (ARK) is a Uniform Resource Locator (URL) that is a multi-purpose identifier for information objects of any type. An ARK contains the label ark: after the URL's hostname, which sets the expectation that, when submitted to a web browser, the URL terminated by '?' returns a brief metadata record, and the URL terminated by '??' returns metadata that includes a commitment statement from the current service provider. The ARK and its inflections ('?' and '??') gain access to three facets of a provider's ability to provide persistence.

Abstract I.Sicily is a project to create and make freely available online the complete corpus of inscriptions from ancient Sicily. The project includes texts in all languages (Greek, Latin, Phoenician/Punic, Oscan, Hebrew, and Sikel), from the first inscribed texts of the Archaic period (7th-6th centuries BC) through to those of late Antiquity (5th century AD and later). In the first instance the project is restricted to texts engraved on stone, but it is intended to expand that coverage in the future. The project uses TEI-XML mark-up, according to the EpiDoc schema.

Abstract The imminent creation of the Digital Latin Library under the auspices of the SCS and other institutions and based at the University of Oklahoma raises two of the key problems of digital annotation: selection and visual design. With theoretically limitless space, what resources should scholars provide for readers, and how are they to be presented? Many innovative approaches are currently being tried, from treebanking, to hyper-linked vocabulary, automatic grammatical analysis tools, video read-throughs, crowd-sourced commentary, and text visualization. I would like to argue for the importance of two specific elements that have so far not been the focus either of established projects like Perseus Digital Library, or of other emerging modes of digital edition of classical texts: author-specific lexica, and direct linking by humans to grammatical reference works.

Extensibility is a guiding design goal - Arethusa includes tools for automatic generation of new plugin skeletons (Arethusa::CLI) and detailed development guides are currently in progress, with the hopes that others will be able to reuse and build upon the platform to add support for other annotation types, languages and back-end repositories and workflow engines.

Abstract Gradle is build automation evolved. Gradle can automate the building, testing, publishing, deployment and more of software packages or other types of projects such as generated static websites, generated documentation or indeed anything else. Gradle combines the power and flexibility of Ant with the dependency management and conventions of Maven into a more effective way to build. Powered by a Groovy DSL and packed with innovation, Gradle provides a declarative way to describe all kinds of builds through sensible defaults. Gradle is quickly becoming the build system of choice for many open source projects, leading edge enterprises and legacy automation challenges.

Abstract Exploratory visualization based on multiple coordinated views is a rapidly growing area of information visualization. Ideally, users would be able to explore their data by switching freely between building and browsing in a flexible, integrated, interactive graphical environment that requires little or no programming skill to use. However, the possibilities for displaying data across multiple views depends on the flexibility of coordination, the expressiveness of graphical encoding, and the ability of users to comprehend the structure of their visualizations as they work. As a result, exploration has been limited in practice to a small fraction of useful visualizations. Improvise is a fully-implemented Java software architecture and user interface that enables users to build and browse highly-coordinated visualizations interactively. By coupling a shared-object coordination model with a declarative visual query language, users gain precise control over how navigation and selection affects the appearance of data across multiple views, using a potentially infinite number of variations on well-known coordination patterns such as synchronized scrolling, overview+detail, brushing, drill-down, and semantic zoom. Improvise has been used to build numerous visualizations for exploring information including election results, particle trajectories, network loads, music collections, the chemical elements, and even the dynamic coordination structure of its own visualizations in situ. This last technique—integrated metavisualization—is unique to Improvise.

Abstract EAGLE is a project whose principal aim is to bring together the most prominent European institutions and archives in the field of Classical Latin and Greek epigraphy in order to provide a single free user-friendly portal to the inscriptions of the Ancient World. Financed by the European Commission, EAGLE was born to endow Europeana, the European digital library, with a comprehensive collection of unique historical sources. EAGLE will thus provide access to the majority of the surviving inscriptions of the Greco-Roman world -- a massive resource and a veritable pillar of European culture, made accessible for the first time to everyone, from the curious to the scholar.

IIIF: International Image Interoperability Framework

Abstract Access to image-based resources is fundamental to research, scholarship and the transmission of cultural knowledge. Digital images are a container for much of the information content in the Web-based delivery of images, books, newspapers, manuscripts, maps, scrolls, single sheet collections, and archival materials. Yet much of the Internet’s image-based resources are locked up in silos, with access restricted to bespoke, locally built applications. A growing community of the world’s leading research libraries and image repositories have embarked on an effort to collaboratively produce an interoperable technology and community framework for image delivery. IIIF (International Image Interoperability Framework) has the following goals: To give scholars an unprecedented level of uniform and rich access to image-based resources hosted around the world. To define a set of common application programming interfaces that support interoperability between image repositories. To develop, cultivate and document shared technologies, such as image servers and web clients, that provide a world-class user experience in viewing, comparing, manipulating and annotating images.

Abstract The Center for Digital Humanities is developing and will implement a web-based application called Tradamus. This application will assist scholars in the creation and publication of scholarly digital editions. It builds upon the CDH‘s successful transcription tool, T-PEN. Moreover, this new application is interoperable: it allows users to draw data from existing tools and resources and also expose their own scholarly editions to (future) interoperable applications. Tradamus will assist scholars by providing tools for use in the five main editing methods in use in the scholarly editing of pre-modern texts. It will permit them to create transcriptions on the fly, import existing transcriptions of manuscripts, collate those witnesses, create the apparatus criticus and other apparatus, attach annotation or commentary (and even translations) to the edition, and assist in the proof-reading of the final product. The publishing component will support static e-editions (for both e-readers, web-pages and to assist in peer review of print publications), dynamic web-based editions and serialization of the edition using RDF technologies. Tradamus will ensure that all these tools will conform to current editorial practice though five use cases.

CollateX: Software for Collating Textual Sources

Accessed 2014-09-18 14:52:58
Abstract CollateX is a software to read multiple (≥ 2) versions of a text, splitting each version into parts (tokens) to be compared, identify similarities of and differences between the versions (including moved/transposed segments) by aligning tokens, and output the alignment results in a variety of formats for further processing, for instance to support the production of a critical apparatus or the stemmatical analysis of a text's genesis. It resembles software used to compute differences between files (e.g. diff) or tools for sequence alignment which are commonly used in Bioinformatics. While CollateX shares some of the techniques and algorithms with those tools, it mainly aims for a flexible and configurable approach to the problem of finding similarities and differences in texts, sometimes trading computational soundness or complexity for the user's ability to influence results. As such it is primarily designed for use cases in disciplines like Philology or – more specifically – the field of Textual Criticism where the assessment of findings is based on interpretation and therefore can be supported by computational means but is not necessarily computable.

ROMAQ: The Atlas Project of Roman Aqueducts

Accessed 2014-08-21 19:16:56
Abstract Roman aqueducts are amongst the most impressive and interesting structures that have survived from the Ancient World. Although aqueduct bridges such as the Pont du Gard are best known, roman aqueducts are complex water supply line systems that are impressive feats of engineering even by today's standards. Some of the aqueducts are simple water channels, but many contain complex structures such as inverted siphons, tunnels, basins and drop shafts while the channels themselves can be up to 240 km in length. Over 1600 roman aqueducts have been described in the Mediterranean basin and the aim of this website is to present the available corpus of literature on the subject in a systematic way. Besides available literature on each aqueduct, we aim to present summarised data on each aqueduct. However, this is a project in development, and it will take time to add new data and publications, and to update content.
