  • Self Archiving Legacy Toolkit (SALT) Computer-assisted Semantic Annotation of Scientific Life Works Will Snow, Project Manager wdsnow-EE77@stanfordalumni.org
  • The problem   Preservation and access of the “papers” of distinguished faculty (Luminaries)   Adding “context and content” implies rapid preparation for the Luminary
  • The opportunity   Living Luminaries   The Internet Image: New York Times Photograph from the Year in Ideas by Zachary Scott December 12, 2004.
  • SALT end-to-end   Semi-automated organization of “papers”   Make available via the next-gen Internet   Elicit new knowledge and meaning • Born-digital workflow • Auto entity extraction • Concept mapping • Archival Tools
  • SALT vs. traditional archiving   SALT will engage earlier with the Luminary   Encouraging participation by the “record maker”   Processes born-digital material and physical   Creates a “hybrid” representation   Largely automated process   Speed and scalability   Rich and findable content   Online links are inherent   “Snap to Grid”
  • SALT Workflow   Semi-automatic workflow creates representation for proofing   Results in preservation and access
  • Content   Born digital files are normalized to PDF   Metadata extracted electronically   Scanned physical documents incorporated
  • Auto Tag Documents
  • Faceted Browser   Automatic tags used to create “facets”   Enables filtered search and pivoting
  • Snap to Grid   Tags distilled with automatic synonyms   Links to online “name authority”
  • Edit Tools   For Luminary, Archivist, Legal   Snap to Grid and clean up
  • Visualization of Legacy   Tags auto-generate visualization   The Luminary may edit, add connections
  • Visualization of Legacy   Automated generation of timeline
  • Pathway   The Luminary may draw a Pathway   An annotation may be recorded and linked
  • Mash Ups, Network Effect   Linked knowledge appears in mash ups   Thinkbase shows a visualization of links
  • Mash Ups, Network Effect   Genealogy of Influence viewer
  • Mash Ups, Network Effect   Powerset indexes all of Freebase   Results yield names, dates, concepts
  • Mash Ups, Network Effect   Parallax is a public faceted browser
  • Serving the Patron   Typical scholar, student starts with search
  • Serving the Patron   Key Archive docs may appear in results
  • Serving the Patron   The Patron is led to a faceted search
  • Stanford Luminary Archives   SALT enables our own Collections   Links to other institutions   Pivot through information   Paths of influence   Progression of ideas   Network of innovation
  • Call to action   For questions or next steps… Self Archiving Legacy Toolkit Computer-assisted Semantic Annotation of Scientific Life Works Will Snow wdsnow-EE77@stanfordalumni.org doodle from http://accuracyandaesthetics.com
