  • A Comparative Kalendar - DH2013 Presentation

    1. 1. A Comparative Kalendar: Building a Research Tool for Medieval Books of Hours from Distributed Resources Benjamin Albritton Stanford University blalbrit@stanford.edu @bla222 Robert Sanderson Los Alamos National Laboratory rsanderson@lanl.gov @azaroth42 James Ginther, Saint Louis University Martin Foys, Drew University Shannon Bradshaw, Drew University
    2. 2. Distributed Resources • Digital Manuscript Interoperability – SharedCanvas – International Image Interoperability Framework – Open Annotation (separate project, but we use it) • Multiple Repositories • Multiple cataloging and discovery approaches • Goal: Exercise the promise of interoperability for specialist analytic tools
    3. 3. A Sea of Manuscript Data • Interoperability – at lowest level, ability for third-party tools to consume content from multiple sources in an identical way http://sul-reader-test.stanford.edu/el-camino
    4. 4. A Sea of Manuscript Data • Interoperability – at next level, tools provide data back into the system that can be re-used T-PEN (http://t-pen.org): transcription, line-parsing, RDF export
    5. 5. A Sea of Manuscript Data • Interoperability – at next level, tools provide data back into the system that can be re-used DM (http://dm.drew.edu/dmproject/): general annotation
    6. 6. A Sea of Manuscript Data • Currently ca. 2500 manuscripts available via SharedCanvas / IIIF • At current pace, many thousands more by late 2014 • Mixed bag of metadata, quality, content, etc. • A challenge to the traditional “index” • Few are interested in “all” – many are interested in specific subsets
    7. 7. Liturgical Books and Structured Data Beinecke MS 310, f. 1r Kalendars • Ubiquitous • Structure • Daily list of liturgical events • Arranged in a perpetual calendar • Often tabular • Content varies according to • Date • Region of use or production • Etc • Minor variations transmit a great deal of information
    8. 8. Liturgical Books and Structured Data Beinecke MS 310, f. 1r Pilot Goals • Build an extensible navigation and discovery tool for books containing kalendars • Using existing image data from interoperable repositories and user-generated data from interoperable tools • Focusing on the key elements provided in the kalendar: dates and liturgical events
    9. 9. Rethinking Digital Facsimiles Walters Ms. W.188, Book of Hours in Dutch f16r • Distributed • Linked Data and Resources • Single Global Space • Interactive • Consumer as Producer • Interoperable • Seamlessly Interconnected • Open Source, Open Content
    10. 10. Rethinking Digital Facsimiles Walters Ms. W.188, Book of Hours in Dutch f16r • Distributed • Linked Data and Resources • Single Global Space • Interactive • Consumer as Producer • Interoperable • Seamlessly Interconnected • Open Source, Open Content • … 100% Buzzword Compliant
    11. 11. Model: Canvas Paradigm • A Canvas is an empty space in which to build up a display
    12. 12. Model: Canvas Paradigm • A Canvas is an empty space in which to build up a display • A SharedCanvas's top left and bottom right corners correspond to the equivalent corners of a [rectangular bounding box around a] page
    13. 13. Model: Annotations to Paint Canvas • The Canvas represents the empty page • Annotation links Image with Canvas
    14. 14. Model: Annotations to Paint Canvas • Annotation links Text with Canvas
    15. 15. Model: Annotations to Paint Canvas
    16. 16. Model: Missing Pages
    17. 17. Distributed Resources / Distributed Environments
    18. 18. Kalendar Data for Extraction Beinecke MS 310, f. 1r • Each row = 1 day (January 1, here) • Lists the feast of the Circumcision • Optionally provides additional information
    19. 19. Data capture in T-PEN
    20. 20. SharedKalendar? • Annotations as re-useable data • Every record for the transcribed Kalendars becomes a means for organization and discovery within the available manuscripts • Offers: – Quick comparison of known content – Ability to present line-level context • Across multiple objects – Across multiple repositories and projects
    21. 21. Distributed Resources / Distributed Environments
    22. 22. Front-end: Exhibit http://guillaumedemachaut.com/kalendar/sharedkalendar.html Simple (really simple) Exhibit based on kalendar transcriptions (Exhibit: http://www.simile-widgets.org/exhibit/)
    23. 23. For each record: Basic information PLUS: • Link out to a canvas viewer implementation showing: • Transcription in context • Full page of kalendar • Ability to move around w/in the manuscript
    24. 24. For each record:
    25. 25. Enabling rapid comparison Two mss. include the entry “Thimotheus apostel”
    26. 26. Distributed Resources / Distributed Environments
    27. 27. SharedCanvas Demo Implementation http://www.shared-canvas.org/impl/demodh
    28. 28. SharedCanvas Demo Implementation http://www.shared-canvas.org/impl/demodh
    29. 29. SharedCanvas Demo Implementation http://www.shared-canvas.org/impl/demodh
    30. 30. SharedCanvas Demo Implementation http://www.shared-canvas.org/impl/demodh
    31. 31. Distributed Resources / Distributed Environments
    32. 32. Pitfalls • Data creation (Annotations) – Interfaces – Reliability • Somewhat ameliorated by being exposed easily – Willingness (or lack thereof) • Data availability – Lack of interoperability (improving rapidly) – Paywalls
    33. 33. Additional Next Steps • More manuscripts • More transcriptions • Authority lists • User feedback from Books of Hours scholars • Collaboration
