Computational Curation of a Digitized Record Series of WWII Japanese-American Internment
Updated: Dec 8, 2017
Abstract—This paper describes innovative computational treatments of index note cards from record series of the World War II Japanese-American Internment Camps that are in the custody of the National Archives. These include linguistic analysis through the use of GATE Developer, and an extension of ANNIE, a GATE plugin, in linguistic processing of information specific to index note cards in order to extract metadata supporting access and archival decisions regarding record release and withdrawal. Other treatments involve digital curation, social networking analysis, and geospatial processing.
