Title:Buried treasure: How a deep data dive can uncover global language gems
Author(s):Applegate, Kelly J.
Subject(s):Language libraries
Digitization projects
Abstract:This poster was presented at the annual Association of College and Research Libraries conference in 2017 in Baltimore, MD. Supplementary electronic handout was available for download from the conference website. Digitization projects are still a lively topic among academic libraries, although small in-house projects have become overshadowed by large scale partner projects like Google Books and the Internet Archive. By using the filtering power of Open Refine, leaders at the helm of their university libraries can put together collections of unique texts written in lesser used languages to bring to their digitization departments. By doing so, they can make scholars of less-studied languages more aware of the resources in their collections.
