Creation and exploitation of digitized historical corpora
What is it about?
Access to collections of manuscripts and early printed books which are kept in monasteries and other remote historical sites is quite a difficult task due the deteriorated state of the collection items, the conditions under which the collections are kept and the limited accessibility to the location. In this paper we describe the creation and exploitation of a digitized historical corpus in an attempt to contribute to the preservation and availability of cultural heritage documents.
Why is it important?
The results of this undertaking can give useful insights as for the creation of corpora of cultural heritage documents and as for the methods for the processing and exploitation of the digitized documents which take into account the language in which the documents are written
