Linked data has been a part of Swallow and the SpokenWeb Metadata Schema since its conception. The goal is to be able eventually to expose records in linked data format.¹ We envision that this will make the collections processed by our team more visible in the long term, while allowing novel research opportunities. To achieve […]

This speaker series takes an algorithmically produced network diagram of publishing metadata as a jumping off point for story-telling around personal memories.
While we now have a well-developed grammar for our Content Field description of audio assets that we listen to, we are interested in having a discussion about what we see when we watch and listen to literary performance, and what we want to include in our descriptions of such AV documents, with the aim of discovery and use by scholars, students and the general public.
