讲座简介:

这次讲座将介绍HathiTrust科研中心(HathiTrust Research Center简称HTRC)的最新发展情况。HTRCHathiTrust项目的科研分支,而HathiTrust则是一个综合性书籍文献资源仓储,它致力于为学术研究及教育领域就这些资源提供数据接口。HathiTrust目前已与超过100个重要科研机构及图书馆取得合作,共同致力于为文化资源的永久性保存及获取提供保障。HathiTrust的合作成员遍布全球。

    HathiTrust的数字档案拥有超过1420万册书籍文献(合49亿页),这些书籍文献来自于谷歌书籍(Google Books)、各个成员图书馆、因特网档案数字图书馆(the Internet Archive)以及许多私人收藏。HTRC为学术研究提供了许多便利,其途径包括:为非损耗性分析(non-consumptive analyses)提供资源数据接口、开发科学研究工具、促进科研项目及科研组织的形成、提供协助学者开发HathiTrust书籍文献的其他帮助性资源如更加完善和强化的元数据及索引等。

    本次讲座还将介绍HTRC的使命、目标及组织架构,也将会简要介绍近期的各种项目、合作及新方案。将要介绍的项目包括用于学术分析的工作集创建+数据容器(Workset Creation for Scholarly Analysis+Data Capsules简称WCSA+DC,由Andrew W. Mellon基金会资助)、HathiTrust+书虫项目(Hathitrust+Bookworm简称HT+BW,由National Endowment for the Humanities资助)。讲座也会介绍HTRC参与的两个由SSHRC Partnership Grant programme资助的项目,即NOVEL(TM)文本挖掘项目以及创建乐谱搜索与分析的统一界面项目(Single Interface for Music Score Searching and Analysis简称SIMSSA)。由于在HathiTrust的资源中有将近800万的书籍文献无法被获取因为他们仍受版权保护,HTRC一直致力于实现对这些无法直接获取的资源进行非损耗性分析。HTRC的特征提取方案(feature extraction)以及数据容器方案(Data Capsule)就是为实现这一可能而做出的部分努力,这两项新方案也将在讲座中介绍。在讲座的最后还将与与会者讨论交流日后与HTRC可能的合作机遇。

Biography

J. Stephen Downie is the Associate Dean for Research and a Professor at the Graduate School of Library and Information Science at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Dr. Downie is the Illinois Co-Director of the HathiTrust Research Center (HTRC). He is also Director of the International Music Information Retrieval Systems Evaluation Laboratory (IMIRSEL) and founder and ongoing director of the Music Information Retrieval Evaluation eXchange (MIREX). He was the Principal Investigator on the Networked Environment for Music Analysis (NEMA) project, funded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. He was Co-PI on the Structural Analysis of Large Amounts of Music Information (SALAMI) project, jointly funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF), the Canadian Social Science and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC), and the UK’s Joint Information Systems Committee (JISC). Dr. Downie is the leader of the Hathitrust + Bookworm (HT+BW) text analysis project that is creating tools to visualize the evolution of term usage over time. Professor Downie represents the HTRC on the NOVEL(TM) text mining project and the Single Interface for Music Score Searching and Analysis (SIMSSA) project, both funded by the SSHRC Partnership Grant programme. All of these aforementioned projects share a common thread of striving to provide large-scale analytic access to copyright-restricted cultural data. Stephen has been very active in the establishment of the Music Information Retrieval (MIR) community through his ongoing work with the International Society for Music Information Retrieval (ISMIR) conferences. He was ISMIR's founding President and now serves on the ISMIR board. Over the past year, Professor Downie has been working with Dunhuang Academy on the "Digital Dunhuang" project to help connect Digital Humanities scholars with the high-resolution digital materials capturing the Mogao Caves. Dr. Downie currently serves on the JCDL steering committee. Professor Downie holds a BA (Music Theory and Composition) along with a Master's and a PhD in Library and Information Science, all earned at the University of Western Ontario, London, Canada.

 

The HathiTrust Research Center: Exploring New Collaboration Opportunities

This lecture provides an update on the recent developments and activities of the HathiTrust Research Center (HTRC). The HTRC is the research arm of the HathiTrust, an online repository dedicated to the provision of access to a comprehensive body of published works for scholarship and education. The HathiTrust is a partnership of over 100 major research institutions and libraries working to ensure that the cultural record is preserved and accessible long into the future. Membership is open to institutions worldwide.

Over 14.2 million volumes (4.9 billion pages) have been ingested into the HathiTrust digital archive from sources including Google Books, member university libraries, the Internet Archive, and numerous private collections. The HTRC is dedicated to facilitating scholarship by enabling non-consumptive analytic access to the corpus, developing research tools, fostering research projects and communities, and providing additional resources, such as enhanced metadata and indices, that will assist scholars to more easily exploit the HathiTrust materials.

This talk will outline the mission, goals and structure of the HTRC. It will also provide an overview of recent work being conducted on a range of projects, partnerships and initiatives. Projects include the Workset Creation for Scholarly Analysis + Data Capsules (WCSA+DC, funded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation) and the HathiTrust + Bookworm project (HT+BW, funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities). HTRC’s involvement with the NOVEL(TM) text mining project and the Single Interface for Music Score Searching and Analysis (SIMSSA) project, both funded by the SSHRC Partnership Grant programme, will be introduced. The HTRC’s new feature extraction and Data Capsule initiatives, part of its ongoing work its ongoing efforts to enable the non-consumptive analyses of the approximately 8 million volumes under copyright restrictions will also be discussed. Conversations with attendees about possible collaboration opportunities with the HTRC will wrap up the presentation.
