Reminder: What metadata do literary studies need? Survey!

The NFDI consortium Text+, the DFG priority program Computational Literary Studies, and the EU project CLS-Infra have jointly created a survey on criteria for the creation of literary text corpora or collections.

logos survey

The aim of this survey is to ask all researchers who create (digital) literary corpora or collections what information they need and consider for compilation. It takes about ten minutes to complete and we will close the survey by the end of September.

Currently, catalogs from libraries, archives, and digital platforms do not yet meet researchers‘ criteria because of different priorities regarding metadata.

We want to change this and therefore ask the researchers themselves, for example, whether they are only looking for novels by 19th century French women authors for their corpus or rather what other information besides genre, gender and time period might be important.
Of course, this does not mean that these metadata can be added right after the survey, but prioritization helps us to improve research infrastructures and the supply of digital corpora plus metadata.

Take the first step with us and participate in the survey:
