The School of Information at Pratt Institute will develop a prototype of DADAlytics, a modular tool that performs supervised entity extraction from archival documents for generating linked open datasets, lowering barriers to entry for institutions seeking to create linked open data from archival materials. This project will build on previous work to develop the Linked Jazz Transcript Analyzer, extending that tool’s functionality and making it more widely available for use by other institutions.
Grant funds will support the research and data gathering needed to inform the redesign and reengineering of the tool, including an environmental scan, a series of meetings with key stakeholders and the development of a prototype.

“We are thrilled that the IMLS will be supporting a project in the heart of New York City at Pratt Institute’s School of Information: Dr. Cristina’s Pattuelli’s project “DADAlytics: A Tool to Steer Digital Culture Heritage to the Semantic Web.” We expect this project will lead to great insight and make significant progress in developing tools that help expose and connect the digital cultural heritage content held by libraries, archives and museums. This work will positively impact researchers, students, and anyone interested in discovering cultural heritage content through the web.”
– Dr. Anthony Cocciolo, Interim Dean, Pratt Institute School of Information.
