Transcribing and editing digitized sources on work in the textile industry

Abstract : Historians have been using digital tools for several decades. Time-Us project has been part of this long tradition by developing experimental methods of automatic transcription (ORC) and structuring (XML) of handwritten archival documents and book collections. The sets chosen to illustrate this work are the minutes of the Conseil des prud'hommes de Paris (1847-1848, 1858, 1878) and the monographs of the Ouvriers des deux mondes (1857-1913, 1930). Two stages will be exposed. The first is the process of analysis and reproduction of logical structures (minutes of the labor court hearings and sections of the monographs), conducted on a ridge between the machine (automation of tasks) and the human hand (manual verifications and corrections). The second is the extraction of textile-related information from the monographs and its availability to researchers. Finally, proposals will be made regarding the possible uses of digital technology in research programs.
