Integrating and Preserving Digital Texts and Images

Saturday, January 6, 2018: 11:50 AM
Diplomat Ballroom (Omni Shoreham)
Paul Israel, Thomas Edison Papers, Rutgers University
Dr. Israel’s remarks will explore the challenges faced by the Thomas A. Edison Papers, at Rutgers University, in editing the large corpus of 20th century documents. While a selective book edition worked well for the 19th century, this format may prove unwieldy for the 20th century documents. By transforming our book edition into a digital text edition we also plan to better integrate it with our digital image edition. He will also discuss the long-term preservation and access strategy being developed for metadata and data for these editions.
