ACRL ULS TULC: Newspaper Navigator: Re-imagining Library Search and Discovery with Machine Learning

Recording of the December 9, 2020, ACRL University Libraries Section Technology in University Libraries Committee : “Newspaper Navigator: Re-imagining Library Search and Discovery with Machine Learning”, with speaker Ben Lee.

In this talk, Ben Lee will present his project, Newspaper Navigator, created in collaboration with LC Labs, the National Digital Newspaper Program, and IT Design & Development at the Library of Congress, as well as Professor Daniel Weld at the University of Washington. In particular, he will discuss the two phases of Newspaper Navigator: extracting visual content from 16+ million pages in Chronicling America (resulting in the Newspaper Navigator dataset) and re-imagining how we search over the extracted visual content using the Newspaper Navigator search application.
