Agenda (with notes)

  1. IMLS Grant Update
    1. Finishing up modeling
      1. Dealing with hyrax metadata model and how to add/modify a new newspaper model
      2. Issues with making the newspaper page a fileset; will make a regular PCDM object instead
    2. Getting ready to look at ingest
    3. Originally planned project to produce a gem but have been working within an application instead; now extracting back into a gem

  2. JSON serialization of ALTO
    1. open-oni: open-oni_OCR-word-coordinates.json
    2. IIIF Annotation list:
    3. performance benchmarking:
    4. open-oni or IIIF options; performance is fairly similiar
    5. Gordon will check with Roger on how this is done in Michigan Daily code
    6. Roger says: We transformed the ALTO into a "words" data structure inspired by what open-ini was doing --- basically a hash with words as key to an array of coordinates.  Mostly for performance: given an array of highlighted terms, easy to find all the coordinates.
