Chinese Comics

The original Chinese Comics database was implemented by the HRA in Phase 2. A large digitisation project produced high-resolution scans of more than 1000 comic books. For more flexibility in handling metadata for researchers, an early database using MODS XML was transformed into a MySQL database with a project specific data model. It comprised a browseable digital representation of Chinese Comics that were enriched with detailed metadata.

In Phase 3 the HRA and Data Futures revisit the Chinese Comics Database  in order to open up the digital collection to the latest annotation based data extraction workflows and explore collection transformation workflows.

The primary target of this showcase, therefore, is the successful transition from a project-specific database to a digital collection on an institutional infrastructure. After the data transformation it will automatically get all the benefits from Data Futures' freizo infrastructure.
