Chapter-level Metadata and the Future of eBook Research

Tuesday, July 15, 2014 - 2:00pm


As the world of academic scholarship moves from the page to online, more and more research now happens at the chapter-level. The parsing of content, the need for it to be easily searchable, with accurate and complete results, is paramount to meeting the demands placed by researchers and students.

This webinar explores what it means to do research at the chapter-level, the benefits provided to researchers and students, and the challenges faced by libraries in delivering the level and quality of discoverability demanded by patrons. It will also offer a sneak peak at Routledge’s forthcoming online handbooks platform, Routledge Handbooks Online, which will provide chapter-level metadata and abstracting to over 300 handbooks across 20 subjects in the social sciences and humanities.
