4. Where We Are


  • Cumulative status as of last night:
    • 149 total entries in the WE1S Corpus Collection List (up from about 60ish at our last meeting)
    • about 85 or so more "unclaimed" titles from the old data sheet that still need entering into the new data sheet
  • Status of work on remaining items in the old data sheet:
    • (from Lindsay): "[would] work on entering metadata for titles listed on the old data sheet ... proceed more quickly if we assigned a small group of the RA's to focus only on that task? ... Or is entering that metadata more of a back-burner task, and so it doesn't matter that it's proceeding a bit more slowly?"
  • Ongoing Areas of Focus 



5. Next Steps


  • Continuing current task of suggesting candidate sources for the WE1S corpus and researching metadata for them
  • Assessing "representativeness" of our cumulative list.
    • When would be a feasible and productive time to have a "representativeness" assessment meeting?
    • What would be best practice for conducting the assessment? (E.g., assign individual RAs and/or faculty to reporting on particular facets of our cumulative list)?
  • Initial trial runs of searching/downloading from sources and entering them for processing in the WE1S Manifest & Virtual Workspace Manager system.
