Digitization of the Retrospective Bibliography card index

Digitization of the Retrospective Bibliography of Czech Literary Studies (1775–1945) card index

(Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports, INFOZ Programme, Code VZ09004, 2009–2011)

 

The Retrospective Bibliography of Czech Literary Studies (1775–1945) card index was entirely digitized under this project. OCR transcriptions were added to the digitized cards, which were subsequently made available in a special web application with a number of superstructural functions for convenient research work with them. The RETROBI web application is available here.

 

The entire system is now publicly available under an AGPL licence. The program is in Java and uses a noSQL CouchDB database.

 

The source code can be downloaded here.

 

A report on the RETROBI project on the Videojournal Czech science programme is available online here.
