TOBIAS Workshops – classifying historical material, September 2016

Two indexing workshops, organized by the School of Advanced Study, University of London, will take place on 7 and 14 September 2016  (14:00 to 16:30).

The workshops are based on the Institute of Historical Research’s (IHR) digital Tobias project, which is publishing the Royal Historical Society’s detailed vocabulary of British and Irish history as linked data (LOD), making it freely available for the first time.

The workshops will discuss the concept of linked data, the RHS vocabulary itself, the Bibliography of British and Irish History (which uses the vocabulary), and the project’s experiments in using the vocabulary to automatically classify historical material, including a case study of the John Johnson Collection.

This event is particularly aimed at people with a background in libraries, archives and museums: academics and others might prefer to attend the related event on 14 September 2016.
