Trunk to tail: linking ElEPHãTs through the Semantic Web

Event type: Seminar


The HathiTrust Digital Library offers a broad collection of millions of titles digitized from libraries around the world. Early English Books Online Text Creation Partnership contains a smaller but well-defined collection of English printed texts between 1473 and 1700. The Early English Print in HathiTrust (ElEPHãT) project bridges the two collections using Linked Data, providing a foundation for exploratory research utilizing the respective strengths—breadth and detail—of the two corpora.

This seminar introduces the principles and technologies behind Linked Data, ontologies, and the Resource Description Framework (RDF), and describes how these technologies are applied to early English print.
