Webbinarier ”Enriching Metadata – Enriching Research”

I juni 2020 bjöd Riksantikvarieämbetet, i samarbete med Digital Humanities Uppsala universitet och Europeana, in till sex webbinarier inom serien ”Berika metadata – berika forskning”. Nu kan du ta ta del av inspelningarna från dem.

Presentationerna och efterföljande frågestund är på engelska och det finns också undertexter på engelska.

Hela spellistan finns även på vår YouTube-kanal

Introduktion – Åsa Larsson, Riksantikvarieämbetet

Presentation av serien och inbjudna talare

Åsa Larsson is Co-organiser of ”Enriching Metadata – Enriching Research”. Assistant Project Leader of ”Urdar – Research Infrastructure for Archaeological Excavation Data” in collaboration with Uppsala University. Working with digitalisation of Heritage and FAIR data.

Webbinarium 1 – Anna Foka, Uppsala Universitet:

Enriching the invisible stories of women – Carl Sahlin’s Collection at the National Museum of Science and Technology in Sweden.

Anna Foka is Associate Professor of History and Information Technology at Umeå University and scientific leader of the Digital Humanities Uppsala Initiative, at the department of Archives, Museums, Libraries and Cultural Heritage, Uppsala University. Co-organiser of ”Enriching Metadata – Enriching Research”. This talk focuses on women’s history archival online repositories and their affordances, targeting a Swedish case study: the personal archive of the industry leader Carl Sahlin (1861-1943), donated to the National Museum of Science and Technology in Stockholm and digitized within the nationally funded project Digital Models.

Webbinarium 2 – Stuart Dunn, King’s College, London:

Ancient Itineraries – Exploring Digital Art History

Sturart Dunn is Senior Lecturer and Head of the Department of Digital Humanities at King’s College, London. Principal Investigator of the Ancient Itineraries project. The Ancient Itineraries project examined ways in which ways of digital thinking can be bought to bear on the field of art history. Drawing on these discussions, this talk will briefly present and critique the use of graph visualization as a means to represent individual objects. This “flips” the conventional approach to network analysis for art objects, which represents collections of objects as networks. By equating individual artworks with individual networks, we can deconstruct, and thus move to overcome, the reductive and quantitative barriers that some have identified to using digital methods for art history.

Webbinarium 3 – Koraljka Golub, Linnéuniversitetet

Searching for humanities – The promise of digital

Koraljka Golub is Professor of Library and Information Science, Head of the iInstitute and co-leader of the Digital Humanities Initiative at the Linnaeus university. She is a lecturer and a researcher in the field of digital libraries and information retrieval. Researching in particular topics related to integrating existing knowledge organisation systems with social tagging and/or automated subject indexing, and evaluating resulting end-user information retrieval. The promise of the digital is omnipresent, with all information just a click way. This is what we often hear but is this really the case? What challenges are we facing as researchers in today’s online search systems and why? How do we know that we are finding all relevant information important for our research?

Webbinarium 4 – Karin Glasemann, Nationalmuseum:

Use and let reuse! Digitisation, data enrichment and access at Nationalmuseum

Karin Glasemann is Digital Coordinator at NationalmuseumSweden’s museum of art and design, and Chair of Europeana Copyright Community. Responsible for streamlining the internal digitisation processes and for making sure that the digitised collections can be found, accessed, used and re-used by the public. Karin has initiated the Nationalmusuem’s Public Domain policy and several collaborations with Wikimedia Sweden, which boosted the Nationalmuseum’s digital presence. The talk relates some of the experiences and lessons drawn from the digitalisation of the museum’s collections and metadata.

Webbinarium 5 – Enrichment and Outreach for Collections:

Hugo Manguinhas, Albin Larsson, Larissa Borck

01:08 – Hugo Manguinhas, Europeana: Enriching Europeana. Creating metadata through Transcribathons

Hugo Manguinhas is Product Owner for APIs at Europeana Foundation. His main focus is to shape the vision of the APIs and ensure a sustainable and consistent development of the products. He is also involved in the elaboration of requirements and specifications that contribute to the further development of the Europeana Data Model. He is presenting the Enrich Europeana project.

20:09 – Albin Larsson, EuropeanaSaint George on a Bike: AI and improving the quality and quantity of metadata 

Albin Larsson works with Research & Development at Europeana, focusing on data quality and enrichment. He was peviously Operations Developer at Swedish National Heritage Board. He is presenting the Saint George on a Bike project which aims to improve the quality and quantity of open metadata associated with imagery from European cultural heritage. It especially aims to address the challenge of endowing AI with insights into culture, symbols and traditions.

37:29 – Larissa Borck, Riksantikvarieämbetet: Boost your collections’ reach on external platforms. 

Larissa Borck is Communications Coordinator at the National Heritage Board for the Europeana Common Culture project, designs and executes strategies for an increase of data quality of collections in SOCH. She has organised the Open GLAM webinar series.  She presents some insights into how sharing and using cultural heritage data can create whole new visibility even for smaller institutions.

Webbinarium 6 – Mia Carlsson & Marcus Smith, Riksantikvarieämbetet

SOCH/K-Samsök – Aggregating national collection metadata

Presenting how the Swedish National Heritage Board works with the aggregators SOCH/K-Samsök and Europeana which collect links and metadata from digitised collections at museums and archives. They will outline the process of making this data available and searchable, explain which data is delivered to SOCH and Europeana respectively and the differences in content and structure between the two platforms. What contributions are needed to make the digitised content of collections more accessible and usable? What should researchers know about the digital resources already available to them and the public?

00:40 – Mia Carlsson: What is SOCH – Swedish Open Cultural Heritage aggregator

12:40 – Marcus Smith: The SOCH content and suggestions for researchers and Cultural Heritage Institutions
