We present part of the collection "Word War I Diaries" from the State Library of New South Wales (Australia).
This project proposes a way of exploring and reading the collection based on grouping pages according to the topics they talk about. The analysis has been done with topic models. We are preparing a publication where the process will be explained in detail.
[bigger means more pages have this topic]
The reader allows you to read the pages of the diaries in, at least two ways:
Visualize more over 80.000 thousend pages from the diaries, order and read them
See the list of diaries and their authors. See main topic of each diary and read them.
See diaries ordered by date and read them too
