I work as project officer for LIBER, which is the Association of European Research Libraries. We have 380 member libraries from all over Europe. Our projects really focus on developing the role of the library as part of the Europeana Research Infrastructure and they fall into 3 main categories.

  • Europeana Newspapers• 17 partner institutions• 3 years (2012-2015)• Aggregation of more than 18 million newspapers• Will use refinement methods for OCR, OLR (article segmentation), and named entity (NER) and class recognition• Suvey existing collections in Europe• Make content accessible This project is partially funded under the ICT Policy Support Programme (ICT PSP) as part of the Competitiveness and Innovation Framework Programme by the European Community http://ec.europa.eu/ict_psp
  • Why newspapers?“The museum (and the newspaper) today seeks whatever represents normal life in its own native locality and with infinite pains its collections are arranged in a manner which is natural to them in their own habitat” Lucy Maynard Salmon (1976) in The Newspaper and the Historian This project is partially funded under the ICT Policy Support Programme (ICT PSP) as part of the Competitiveness and Innovation Framework Programme by the European Community http://ec.europa.eu/ict_psp

  • What we do with the content• Select 10 million items to be OCR’d • Structural information by UKIB e.g. headings, table of contents• Select 2 million items for OCR and OLR • Article segmentation and page class recognition by CCS• Libraries carry out manual correction of recognition and segmentation results• Named entity recognition applied to English, Dutch and German material This project is partially funded under the ICT Policy Support Programme (ICT PSP) as part of the Competitiveness and Innovation Framework Programme by the European Community http://ec.europa.eu/ict_psp
  • Making the content accessible• OCR enables full text searching• OLR enables more targeted searching (titles and sections)• NER enables searching by people, place,and the discover of new relationships between entities This project is partially funded under the ICT Policy Support Programme (ICT PSP) as part of the Competitiveness and Innovation Framework Programme by the European Community http://ec.europa.eu/ict_psp
  • No access without aggregation• Europeana Libraries • A single library domain aggregator • Content from European research libraries • Full-text search capabilities • Portal for researchers Access = Sustainability Access = Visibility This project is partially funded under the ICT Policy Support Programme (ICT PSP) as part of the Competitiveness and Innovation Framework Programme by the European Community http://ec.europa.eu/ict_psp
