These webinars are part of a series held by the Swedish National Heritage Board and the Digital Humanities initiative at Uppsala University, on 10, 11 and 16 June 2020. The series was conceived within a project (led by Dr Åsa Larsson, Swedish National Heritage Board; Dr Anna Foka, Uppsala University) supported by the Europeana Research Grants Programme. The webinars focus on finding, accessing, using and enriching metadata in digitised collections, with the aim of increasing researcher-museum collaborations. The video outputs are licensed CC-BY-SA.

Koraljka Golub, Linnaeus University - Searching for humanities – The promise of digital

The promise of the digital is omnipresent, with all information just a click away. This is what we often hear but is this really the case? What challenges are we facing as researchers in today’s online search systems and why? How do we know that we are finding all relevant information important for our research? This talk explores some of these questions. It took place on 11 June 2021. 

Koraljka Golub is Professor of Library and Information Science, Head of the iInstitute and co-leader of the Digital Humanities Initiative at the Linnaeus university. She is a lecturer and a researcher in the field of digital libraries and information retrieval, particularly on topics related to integrating existing knowledge organisation systems with social tagging and/or automated subject indexing, and evaluating resulting end-user information retrieval.
