Monk system for word search in handwritten manuscript collections The Monk system is developed at the University of Groningen by a research group at the Artificial Intelligence institute ALICE, under supervision by prof. dr. Lambert Schomaker. In cooperation with the Dutch National Archive we have created methods for accessing historical archive collections which are difficult to process by traditional OCR methods, for example due to their historical character types or due to the fact that the material is handwritten.

The Association for Computers and the Humanities The Association for Computers and the Humanities (ACH) is a major professional society for the digital humanities. We support and disseminate research and cultivate a vibrant professional community through conferences, publications, and outreach activities. ACH is based in the US, but boasts an international membership (as of November 2015, representing 21 countries worldwide). What is DH? Digital humanities is a broad term encompassing a wide range of subject domains and communities of practice, including computer-assisted research, pedagogy, and software and content development in humanistic disciplines like literature and language studies, history, or philosophy. DH also engages with the critical relationship between digital technologies and humanities methods, and the ways they may influence each other.

These text-versions are crucially necessary: they are what enables full-text searching, datamining, preserving, and curating2 texts of historical importance. Right now, the text running behind the page images of these texts has been mechanically typed,3 leaving behind errors that need to be corrected by human eyes and hands. Our contracts with Gale and Proquest allow any person or group who corrects a text to be given that text when finished correcting it to use as they wish.
Mapping the Trade of the Société Typographique de Neuchâtel, 1769-1794 The French Book Trade in Enlightenment Europe (FBTEE) project is a digital humanities project of international significance mapping the production, marketing, dissemination, policing, and reception of books (and hence ideas) in the late eighteenth century. It aims to bring together and make interoperable and publicly available in a single digital resource multiple historical bibliometric databases. The first of these databases is now available on line via this site. A second stage of the project’s development is being funded by the Australian Research Council and Western Sydney University, where the project is now based. For details of this project and work in progress.
