Automation and Collaboration: Exploiting the Digital Medium

6th International Conference of Digital Archives and Digital Humanities,
30 November 2015, National Taiwan University
New Perspectives on Digital Sinology Resources panel

The digital medium presents unique opportunities and challenges for the development of new kinds of resources for the study of Chinese literature. Using examples from the Chinese Text Project, I suggest ways in which digital libraries can leverage the advantages of the digital realm to offer new functionality and services at relatively low cost. This involves the exploitation of two primary avenues for scalable development: firstly the use of automation to achieve goals realistically attainable by computational methods, and secondly the encouragement of open user engagement to recruit human volunteers to assist with tasks less suited to automation.
