  • quod: A Tool for Querying and Organising Digitised Historical Documents

    This blog post from EHRI introduces 'quod' (querying OCRed documents), a prototype Python-based command line tool for OCRing and querying digitised historical documents, which can be used to organise large collections and improve information about provenance. To demonstrate its use in context, this blog takes the reader through a case study of the International Tracing Service, showing workflows and the steps taken from start to finish.
  • EHRI in TEITOK

    This blog examines TEITOK, which is a corpus framework used as an alternative to Omeka. TEITOK is centered around texts and is similar to the Omeka interface – both allow you to search through the documents, and display the transcription. The main difference is that Omeka treats the transcription as an object description, whereas TEITOK not only shows that a word appears in a document, but also where it appears and how it is used.
