    • Bridging research and collections 25/03/2013 2This presentation• Mission statement of IISH• Adjusting ICT-strategy• Requirements for software development • Solutions – Demo / Proof Of Concepts (POC) of projects & tools• Questions
    • Bridging research and collections 25/03/2013 3Mission statementThe IISH conducts historical research on labour relations at a global scale and to this end collects data, which are made available to other researchers as well• Do research• Search, use, visualize and update data• Collecting and preserving the data• Make data available for research and public
    • Bridging research and collections 25/03/2013 4What is our data?• Metadata (describing data and collections)• Scans / Full-text• Image, sound, movie, books & serials• Datasets• Aggregation (Metadata, full-text papers and datasets)• Analogue, digitized and digital
    • Bridging research and collections 25/03/2013 5What are our target groups?We are listening to our target groups:• Researchers• Collectors• Public AudienceWe are collecting all ideas and requirements from you!
    • Bridging research and collections 25/03/2013 6Historical Research MethodologyWhat is historical research in IISH?1. Formulation of the research question2. Data collection and/or literature review3. Evaluation of materials4. Data analysis5. Write and publish articles6. Sharing datasets
    • Bridging research and collections 25/03/2013 7Data Collecting MethodologyWhat is collecting in IISH?• Collecting data• Storing data• Preservation • Digitization/scanning • OCR/full text • Metadata/MARC21/Indexing• Make data public available in digital infrastructure
    • Bridging research and collections 25/03/2013 8Customer Development MethodologyWhat is software development in IISH?Our target groups are sharing with us:• Requirements• Experiments• Insights and ideas1. Create prototype based on requirements and ideas2. Present prototypes of software tools to our target group3. Improve software tools after feedback from our target group
    • Bridging research and collections 25/03/2013 9Where? Who? IISH CODI Research WE General public
    • Bridging research and collections 25/03/2013 10Mission statementThe IISH conducts historical research on labour relations at a global scale and to this end collects data, which are made available to other researchers as wellLet’s now look into collecting first!
    • Bridging research and collections 25/03/2013 11Typical collectors requirements• Describe, index and store Metadata in digital library system• Improve Metadata • Based on computer based analysis and Natural Language Processing tools• Link Metadata from IISH to other Metadata systems• Search and discover digitized and digital born materials• Transform Metadata into research data (datasets)
    • Bridging research and collections 25/03/2013 12IndexingExtract entities and store it as terms in Metadata Collections Scans Metadata Manual Automatic CODI HiTIME
    • Bridging research and collections 25/03/2013 13Automatic indexing exampleInput from scan:Founded at the initiative of Vladimir I. Lenin in 1901 in Switzerland afterthe Second Congress of the RSDRP in 1903 the League became themain bulwark of Menshevism abroad until it disbanded in 1905.Metadata linked with Evergreen Authorities:Vladimir;;VladiMir;;566353;;Personal NameCongress;;Video Congress;;316063;;Meeting NameLenin;;Lenin;;570134;;Uniform TitleSwitzerland;;Switzerland;;350823;;Geographic NameSecond Congress of the RSDRP;;411162;;Meeting Name
    • Bridging research and collections 25/03/2013 14Solutions for collectors• Evergreen Library System Product• Metadata management Product• Metadata reports Product• Evergreen OAI protocol Product• Text analyzing tools (collectors & researchers) Prototype API
    • Bridging research and collections 25/03/2013 15Project overview: EvergreenCollectors Metadata Storage System• Perfect library solution to store Metadata in MARC21 standard• Open-Source License (free of charge for usage)• Flexible and Powerful solution, works with millions of MARC records• Export of all data in OAI-PMH protocol to link data with other systems• Visualization tools to present data online
    • Bridging research and collections 25/03/2013 16Evergreen Library System
    • Bridging research and collections 25/03/2013 17Metadata management
    • Bridging research and collections 25/03/2013 18Mission statementRemember:The IISH conducts historical research on labour relations at a global scale and to this end collects data, which are made available to other researchers as wellLet’s do some research!
    • Bridging research and collections 25/03/2013 19What is historical research?The process of systematically examining past events to give an account of what has happened in the pastWhy do we conduct historical research?• To uncover the unknown• To answer questions• To identify the relationship that the past has to the present• To record and evaluate the accomplishments of individuals, agencies, or institutions• To assist in understanding the culture in which we liveAnd much, much, much more…
    • Bridging research and collections 25/03/2013 20Typical research requirementsAccess to information• Find digital materials relevant for research• Search information stored in Metadata • Poor quality of Metadata = Poor quality of research• Searching, filtering, navigating, summarization of data• Analyze papers for research online• Link materials relevant to research from other sources• Collection descriptions are relevant to the topic of research, but papers arent
    • Bridging research and collections 25/03/2013 21Typical research requirementsDatasetsStore datasets in a digital infrastructure to answer researchquestions• Use best practice for visualization of datasets• Generate custom datasets for new research• Combine/compare datasets in time and/or place• Share datasets with other researchers (collaboration and crowdsourcing)
    • Bridging research and collections 25/03/2013 22General goal of research All Data Possibly relevant Data Definately relevant Data Structured Knowledge
    • Bridging research and collections 25/03/2013 23Sharing your research• Publish scientific articles on websites relevant to the topic of research• Share research datasets with other researchers• Generate charts and maps in real-time in digital infrastructure based on live data • Publish in articles and share on Wikipedia and other popular websites• Make biographies of famous people more attractive with timelines of visual materials
    • Bridging research and collections 25/03/2013 24Indexing (keywords)For researchers• Researchers publishing keywords in the beginning of every research paper• Keyword in research paper = Index term in Metadata• Keywords from papers stored as Metadata in library system• Keywords used in text analyzing systems to create links with other papers on the same topic
    • Bridging research and collections 25/03/2013 25Solutions for researchersData: Datasets:• Search engines • Maps Prototype Product• Linked data • Charts Product Prototype• Timelines • Visual Library System Prototype Prototype
