Best known for its authoritative reference content, its intelligent organisation of full-text magazine and newspaper articles, and its global programme in digitising historical primary sources, the company creates and maintains more than 600 databases that are published online, in print, as e-Books and in microform. Major online products include digital collections such as Eighteenth Century Collections Online, Nineteenth Century Collections Online, The Making of the Modern World, and the National Geographic Virtual Library. New releases for 2014 include: Chatham House Online, State Papers Online, 1714 – 1782, Part 1, and four exciting additions to Nineteenth Century Collections Online ‒ Children’s Literature & Childhood; Mapping the World: Maps &Travel Literature; Religion, Spirituality, Reform & Society; and Science, Technology & Medicine, 1785 – 1925, Part 2.
In an exciting development for Humanities scholarship Gale has recently announced that it will make the content of its historical primary source digital collections available to researchers for text and data mining. Under this new programme content from Gale’s digital collections will be made available to Libraries which have acquired the digital collection concerned. The content will be provided to the Library on a separate hard drive consisting of the XML-encoded metadata for that Collection, which is a format that is compatible with interoperable harvesting of the content by Digital Humanities researchers.
HEURIST Research Data Manager
HEURIST revolutionises data management for the Humanities by putting non-technical researchers in the driving seat. Any confident researcher can design, create, manage, analyse and publish their own richly-structured database(s) through a simple web interface, without the need for costly consultants or programmers. Using the free service at the University of Sydney, a functioning database can be built in minutes, and a complete application in hours, and later migrated to a personal or institutional server, if required. Databases can be designed and built incrementally, as structural changes can be made without affecting existing data.
Whatever the field of study – History, Archaeology, Anthropology, Cultural Research, Linguistics, Media Studies etc. – HEURIST handles everything from text, tags and categories, through networks of rich relationships and offset annotations, to images, video, spatial data and dating, including non-western systems and dating uncertainty. Search results can be rendered as interactive maps, timelines, relationship visualisations, faceted views, crosstabulations, lists and custom reports, and as transformable XML, all of which can easily be printed or embedded in a website. The interface is designed by researchers, for researchers, aiming to reduce complex underlying decisions to simple, logical choices. We are happy to assist with initial database setup at no cost, and can provide customisation and in-depth training by arrangement. HEURIST is based at the University of Sydney, is free and Open Source, and is easy to install on any physical or cloud/virtual server.
