Second IMPACT Workshop! May 7th, come to Bratislava!

9 April, 2010

When: Friday, May 7th, 2010. Beginning 9:30 am

Where: University Library in Bratislava, Michalská 1, 814 17 Bratislava, Slovakia

The Munich DigitiZation Center (MDZ) of the Bavarian State Library and the University and Regional Library Tyrol (ULB) are pleased to invite you to the Workshop Improving Access to Text – research results and practical experience from the IMPACT project, which will take place Friday, May 7th, 2010, at the University Library in Bratislava, Slovakia.

The workshop’s aims are twofold: to introduce the EU-funded project IMPACT – IMProving Access to Text – to a wider audience and make its work more widely known, and to discuss the different challenges with the creation of digital full texts of historical material.

The workshop will not only show the benefits of optical character recognition (OCR) and digital full-texts for libraries, museums and archives, but also present concrete use cases and some of the technical tools developed in the project, as well as provide practical advice for digitisation projects.

For further information on the event, the workshop programme and the registration, please go here.

And once again this blog will be the place to find ‘live’ coverage from the event, with summaries of the talks, video captures and presentation slides!
