Europeana Newspapers – why newspapers?

"Die Zeitungen sind die Sekundenzeiger der Geschichte."
 (Newspapers are the sweep hands of history)
                                                     Arthur Schopenhauer


Why newspapers?
• Relevant to all citizens
• Highly relevant to European policies incl. Europeana
• Newspapers in libraries – between
   • Heaven = solid and complete originals, excellent microfilm copies
   • and Hell = frail and crumbly originals, missing editions, incomplete
     supplements, poor microfilm copies, legal uncertainties with
     contemporary material

                                                                            3
Europeana Newspapers: Aims and Objectives

Europeana Newspapers

  • aims at the aggregation and refinement of newspapers for The
    European Library and Europeana.

  • will use refinement methods for OCR, OLR (article segmentation),
    and named entity (NER) and class recognition

  • the libraries participating in the project will provide around 18 million
    digitised newspaper pages to Europeana

  • Further libraries will be encouraged to contribute newspapers to
    Europeana and TEL by the project

                                                                                4

• Make Europeana the largest provider of pan-European newspaper collections
• Provision of more than 18 million newspaper pages to Europeana, many of
  those with full-texts
• Support move from images to texts in Europeana
2) Analysis of existing newspaper collections
• Survey of newspaper holdings in Europe
3) Quality Assurance & Best practise recommendations
• Contribute to optimised workflows and data aggregation infrastructures
• Provide best practice recommendations for digitization, refinement, workflows,
  metadata etc. and evaluation tools
4) Presentation and full-text search
• Improve access to newspaper collections within Europeana

                                                                                   8
1) Selection, Refinement & Aggregation of content

• Aggregation of 18 million pages of digitised
  newspapers to Europeana and to The
  European Library
    • 8 million pages “as is” (content providers)
    • 10 million refined pages: OCR (UIBK,
      Austria)                                      www.europeana.eu/
    • 2 million refined pages: OCR/OLR (article
      segmentation) (CCS, Germany)
• Analysis of available digital newspaper
  collections and selection of subsets
  suitable for refinement

                                                    www.theeuropeanlibrary.org/


                                                                              9
1) Refinement – OCR and OLR

• 10 million refined pages:
  OCR (UIBK, Austria)
• 2 million refined pages:
  OCR/OLR (article segmentation)
  (CCS, Germany)

• UIBK enriches the OCR with structural information     CCS: Column recognition, article segmentation
  from their Document Understanding Platform
• CCS produces OCR and verification of column
  recognition, zoning, article segmentation, and page
  class recognition
• CCS provides libraries with a client technology for
  manual correction of recognition and segmentation
  results

                                                          UIBK: Detection of headings, footnotes, etc.
                                                                          Table of contents extraction
1) Refinement - Named Entity Recognition

• KB provides named entities recognition (NER) for material from up to
 three languages (Dutch, English, and German)
2 ) A n a ly s is o f e x is t in g d ig it is e d
n e w s p a p e r c o lle c t io n s

• Project partners and others will be contacted until summer 2012 to
  analyse the extent of digitised newspapers collections at their institutions
       • Results will be embedded in “Zeitschriftendatenbank” of
         Staatsbibliothek zu Berlin (Union Catalogue of Serials)
       • Potential new partners for the extension of the network will be
         suggested by survey
• May also be useful to judge technical status of digitised data and as part
  of gathering descriptive metadata

• If you hold digital newspaper collection and like to participate in the
 survey  please contact: survey@europeana-newspapers.eu/
3) Analysis of work & Best Practise Recommendations


• Analysis of metadata formats in use by libraries in digitisation projects
• Align metadata models with the METS/ALTO standard and release best
  practise recommendation on how to apply these formats in newspaper
  digitisation and refinement
• Usability of the recommendation will be tested through an evaluation
  cycle
• Provide recommendations on best practices for refinement of digitized
  newspaper collections for Europeana
4) Presentation & Access to full-texts

• Within the lifetime of the project, a content browser
  will be built within TEL portal so that users can …
• Search full text, e.g.
   • by search term,
   • by named entities
   • by collections of newspapers
   • by date ….
• See newspaper images
• Be linked to relevant library sources
• This browser will be built in TEL during project;
  and exported to Europeana after the project
5) Dissemination

• Objectives:
   • Establishment of publicity
   • Increasing usage of Europeana
   • Awareness raising among target groups
• Tasks:
   • Media Communication
   • Workshops and conferences
