LHNCBC conducts R&D in text and data mining, machine learning, electronic preservation and on-line access for multi-media, print-only, and centuries-old biomedical documents.

Projects

  • Digital Preservation Research

    The Digital Preservation Research (DPR) project addresses an important mandate for libraries and archives: to retain electronic files for posterity as well as to retrieve information from preserved documents through semantic search.

  • Interactive Publications

    Interactive Publications are scientific multimedia documents that give readers more information from an article than is available in the published form (electronic or print) by enabling interaction with the included media (tables, graphs, images, videos, biomedical image studies, etc.)

  • Medical Article Record System

    The Medical Article Records System (MARS) project develops automated systems to extract bibliographic text from journal articles, in both paper as well as electronic forms.

  • Turning The Pages

    Turning The Pages is a computer system with touchscreen that allows users to touch and turn the pages of virtual books in an intuitive manner. Initially created by the British Library for use on a touchscreen monitor, the LHNCBC has significantly refined the original technology to simulate the act of easily flipping through virtual books.
