Description

The Story of TILE: Developing tools for working with images

Dot Porter Associate Director for Digital Library Content and Services, IU Libraries
John Walsh Assistant Professor, School of Library and Information Science

The Text Image Linking Environment (TILE) is a collaborative project between the Maryland Institute for Technology in the Humanities (MITH), the Digital Library Program at Indiana University, and the School of Library and Information Science at Indiana University Bloomington. TILE was designed to change the way that people think about digital humanities tools. Many tools created for humanists are built within the context of a single project, focusing either on a single set of materials or on materials from a single time period, and this limits their ability to be adapted for use by other projects. The TILE project – not just the software, but the project itself – was designed to cut across subjects and materials. Because it is simple, with focused functionality, TILE will be usable by a wide variety of scholars from different areas and working with a variety of materials – illustrations and photographs as well as images of text.  During our brownbag we will describe the thinking behind TILE, how it is intended to be used, and details on how TILE is built and functions. We will also demonstrate the current functionality of TILE.
