The wide availability of digital technologies has increased the quantity and diversity of information that can be collected from and about a musical performance. Making this data easily accessible for study by musicologists requires the development of supporting methodologies and tools to assist and automate its systematic cataloguing, archiving, and… (More)
Bibliographic metadata standards are a longstanding mechanism for Digital Libraries to manage records and express relationships between them. As digital scholarship, particularly in the humanities, incorporates and manipulates these records in an increasingly direct manner, existing systems are proving insufficient for providing the underlying… (More)
Semantic Web technologies offer solutions for bridging discrete and even disparate datasets. Linked Data has been seen in several Digital Humanities projects, but through the alignment of instance-level entities rather than the capture of workflows, which have yet to become part of the publication paradigm for reporting on completed research. In this paper,… (More)
The HathiTrust Research Center (HTRC) is engaged in the development of tools that will give scholars the ability to analyze the HathiTrust digital library's 14 million volume corpus. A cornerstone of the HTRC's digital infrastructure is the workset -- a kind of scholar-built research collection intended for use with the HTRC's analytics platform. Because… (More)
Performance of a musical work potentially provides a rich source of multimedia material for future investigation, both for musicologists' study of reception and perception, and in improvement of computational methods applied to its analysis. This is particularly true of music theatre, where a traditional recording cannot sufficiently capture the ephemeral… (More)
Far from its beginnings as symbols pressed into clay tablets, Ancient Sumerian is now being digitized and shared through cutting edge semantic web technologies.
