Linked Data, Transcription, and Markup for Archives and Communities
Abigail Belfrage, Public Record Office, Victoria, Australia
Public Record Office Victoria (PROV) is the archival authority for the State of Victoria, Australia. In partnership with a number of research and community-based organisations PROV is developing an open-source, web-based crowdsourcing transcription and semantic (& geo-location) mark-up app. The aim is not just to create a valuable body of linked data and images from the state’s archives, but to enable access to the transcription & markup functionality for communities to use on their own projects.
