1 The Tiger Project: Korea Culture and Heritage DL 2000. 8. 10 Kim, Sung Hyuk Division of Information Science Sookmyung Women’s University, Seoul, Korea

2 DL LAB. Sookmyung Univ. Contents 1. Introduction 2. Project Scope 3. Research Agenda 4. Collaboration 5. Conclusion

3 DL LAB. Sookmyung Univ. 1. Introduction Current Korean society is facing several problems regarding DL as follows: –Creation of an island of digitized information for culture and heritage documents –Crisis of humanity studies –No initiative government department –No research-oriented DL –Supposition of DL as a digitization of printed document and electronic libraries

4 DL LAB. Sookmyung Univ. Necessity of DL for Korean Culture and Heritage –Preservation of Korean history documents in digital form –Providing opportunities for Korean peoples to access the Korean classics regardless of the time and places –Promotion of the study for humanities through DL technologies

5 DL LAB. Sookmyung Univ. –Development of the Korean information industry through DL construction –Introducing and accessing of the Korean classics to and around the world –Sharing cross-cultural heritage

6 DL LAB. Sookmyung Univ. 2. Project Scope Project title: Tiger Project: Korean Culture and Heritage DL Contents coverage: Korean ancient documents and their Korean and English translations, old and modern maps, historical vestiges, relics, art materials, ancient building and architectures, etc.

7 DL LAB. Sookmyung Univ. Project members and organizations: –Professors of information science, computer science, Korean history, Korean literature and language, librarians, curators –University libraries, national museums, archive Project purpose –Providing professional research documents for researchers around the world –Providing educational and lecture materials to K-12 and universities

8 DL LAB. Sookmyung Univ. –Providing seamless connection of related materials –Providing general knowledge of Korean ancient history and culture around the world –Providing various access points to materials –Promoting research of humanity studies

9 DL LAB. Sookmyung Univ. 3. Research Agenda Text encoding of Korean ancient document: TEI, XML, document structuring techniques Digitizing technology: 3D and image capture techniques, digital camera, over sized materials 3D animation and rendering technology: Browser development, VRML techniques

10 DL LAB. Sookmyung Univ. Integrating technology of geo-spatial data and documents: mapping techniques between old and modern map, automatic linkage methods Digital preservation : migration, emulation, refreshing techniques Summarization and abstraction : statistics or corpse-based techniques, using structured document

11 DL LAB. Sookmyung Univ. Cross language information retrieval: bilingual and parallel corpus, dictionaries, and terminology Interface design: visualization, cognitive and intelligent interface Classification and cataloging: automatic classification(documents, relics, manuscript), metadata(TEI header, Dublin core)

12 DL LAB. Sookmyung Univ. Restoring technology of damaged and spoiled materials: documents, manuscript, relics Content development for various user levels: K-12, researchers and scholars, foreigners, ordinary persons

13 DL LAB. Sookmyung Univ. 4. Collaboration 5 reasons why we need collaboration for mutual benefits in DL The first reason –Our situation for DL construction: beginning stage in terms of DL technologies –DL for Korean culture and heritage: should be content and technology based DL –Need experiences, knowledge and technologies to advance for the future DL

14 DL LAB. Sookmyung Univ. The second reason –Current DL: networked information repositories within the specific country –Future DL: networked information repositories around the world –This means the future DL has to have contents of the East and West The third reason –US is not familiar with Korean language, culture and heritage –US DL need Korean contents

15 DL LAB. Sookmyung Univ. –This means DL technologies and contents related to Korea and Korean should be developed by collaboration The fourth reason –Current world: facing cross cultural, cross lingual, cross religion, and multi disciplinary issues –Future world: understanding and solving the above issues through DL –This means DL is a road to the harmony of information sharing around the world

16 DL LAB. Sookmyung Univ. The fifth reason –Korea has many DL scholars who studied in the State and have had relation with many US scholars –This means we have no barriers for DL research collaboration between two countries Collaboration Areas for the US partner: technologies and contents development for Korean Culture and Heritage DL

17 DL LAB. Sookmyung Univ. 5. Conclusion Phase 1 of the Tiger Project –testbed construction –technology development with the US partner document structuring 3D animation and rendering Browser automatic linkage of related materials content development for Korean and English for testbed –Demonstration of Korean Culture and Heritage DL

18 DL LAB. Sookmyung Univ. Phase 2 of the Tiger Project –Operational DL construction –Technology development with the US partner bilingual and parallel corpus development intelligent interface Cross information retrieval between Korean and English contents expansion dictionaries and terminology's database –DL operation

19 DL LAB. Sookmyung Univ. Future DL can not be constructed by a specific country, but will be constructed by collaboration with all around world especially by both the East and West This is the right time for collaboration on DL research between Korea and the US

20 DL LAB. Sookmyung Univ. Korea and US government should support for the future DL construction DL researchers of both countries should share and collaborate experiences, knowledge and contents for the future DL
