The Digital Libraries as Digital Humanities engines

Research in Digital Humanities relies on the accessibility to and quality of data. Digital libraries and Web Archives provide a fast growing number of data sets and data bases with metadata and standardized interfaces. From single collection to huge libraries like the Internet Archive “Big Data” is not a metaphor but a reality. To explore the richness of data in libraries and archives is one major task in the area of Digital Humanities. Libraries and archives are digital humanities engines to unlock the treasures with new computer-based approaches.

We invite digital humanists from all walks of academic life to show in detail how to make use of the richness of libraries and archives and apply for the digital humanities track at the upcoming 20th International Conference on Theory and Practice of Digital Libraries “Overcoming the Limits of Digital Archives”. The following topics are of interest, but are not limited to:

- Building corpora out of libraries or archives
- Exploring the semantic of collections
- Making use of data mining techniques based on data of libraries and archives
- Information extraction for digital humanities
- Ontologies building and usage (including named entity recognition, GND etc.)
- The value of metadata for scholarly research
- Visualisation of primary and secondary sources data from DLs for DH research
- Impact and value of digital libraries in humanities research and teaching
- Methodological aspects of developing DLs for scholarly use
