Technology to aid teaching and research: How Adam Matthew’s Colonial Caribbean collection and Quartex platform use Handwritten Text Recognition and Metadata | 25th June | 11:00 AM - 11:10 AM (CDT)

Join our Book Buzz Bite to find out more about how our upcoming collection, Colonial Caribbean, Module I: Settlement, Slavery and Empire, 1624-1832 which stretches from the turbulent years of early British settlement to the rise of the abolition movement, uses Handwritten Text Recognition, including automated transcriptions, and metadata to aid discoverability and research across manuscript material.

We’ll also explore how this Handwritten Text Recognition technology and metadata can be applied when publishing your own digital archival content through Quartex.
