Automating the Creation of Book Indices
Odoma worked with the Epische Bauformen team to build a semi-automatic workflow for the creation of back-of-the-book indices of cited passages for the compendium "Structures of Epic Poetry", a publication in four volumes edited by C. Reitz and S. Finkmann and published by De Gruyter (2019).
The resulting 4 indices list more than 15,000 citations, automatically extracted from over 2,700 pages and carefully double checked by the book editors and their collaborators.
Automation of manual processes
Reduction of processing time
Increased knowledge about the sources
