Notes

Abstract: As digital library collections continue to increase in size it becomes necessary to use new tools and techniques to communicate and understand the rich content held in these collections to curators and end users. This presentation discusses the use of the D3 Javascript library to visualize and provide new insight to the Texas Digital Newspaper Program (TDNP) hosted by The Portal to Texas History as a case study. The collection contains over one million pages of Texas newspapers from the 1830's to modern day covering over one hundred counties, and hundreds of titles. An overview of existing newspaper visualization projects will be presented as well as an explanation of how the presenters prepared the data for these visualizations using the publicly available TDNP OAI-PMH repository and the open source D3 Javascript library.
