Archives, Access and Artificial Intelligence

A new edited collection entitled Archives, Access and Artificial Intelligence has recently been published on open access.

The open access book can be found here.

Publishers’ information: Digital archives are transforming the Humanities and the Sciences. Digitized collections of newspapers and books have pushed scholars to develop new, data-rich methods. Born-digital archives are now better preserved and managed thanks to the development of open-access and commercial software. Digital Humanities have moved from the fringe to the center of academia. Yet, the path from the appraisal of records to their analysis is far from smooth. This book explores crossovers between various disciplines to improve the discoverability, accessibility, and use of born-digital archives and other cultural assets.

Authors include: Lise Jaillant (who is also the Editor of the volume), Jane Winters, Mark Bell, Tom Storrar, Melissa Terras, Martin Paul Eve and Paul Gooding, with an Afterword by Richard Marciano.

This will be a valuable addition to published information about archives and digital humanities, linked to a number of earlier posts on this SLA blog.
