Indexing of digital text archives through metadata and lemmas (WG 2)

Project content

The curation project was accepted in December 2012. The responsibility of its implementation lay with Prof. Dr. Roland Meyer from Humboldt University in Berlin.

The aim of the project was to develop a tool that indexes historical text archives in a way that enables searching based on metadata and lemmas. The secondary data and tools needed for processing (databases, lexica and morphological analyzers) will be made available via web-services. The project was realized on the Polish language and the tool is to be regarded as an exemplary prototype to be transferred to other languages and archives. An important aspect of the realization of the project is the co-operation with the CLARIN-D service centres in Saarbrücken, Tübingen, Nijmegen and Leipzig.
