Conference dates: June 16th-18th 2021
Quartex will be presenting at this year’s virtual conference on Friday, June 18, between 1pm-1.30pm CT.
In a shared session with our colleagues at Adam Matthew Digital, Quartex is delighted to be joined by one of our partners, Congregational Library & Archives, who have already witnessed the power of our newest technology, Handwritten Text Recognition with Transcription, which makes manuscript assets fully searchable and infinitely more discoverable.

Unlocking manuscript collections: Congregational Library & Archives and Adam Matthew Digital discuss Handwritten Text Recognition (HTR) Transcription
Quartex, an Adam Matthew Digital platform, recently launched Handwritten Text Recognition (HTR) Transcription, a cutting-edge development which uses ground-breaking AI technology to generate automatic, highly accurate, editable, and fully searchable transcriptions of manuscript materials. Join us for a conversation with Congregational Library & Archives and Adam Matthew Digital to learn about how this technology is being applied to manuscript collections.
Congregational Library & Archives is one of the first institutions to seize the opportunity to enhance the discoverability and accessibility of handwritten documents using HTR Transcription. They will provide a sneak peek into their work on Quartex, including a look at the Boston Massacre sermon, written shortly after the riot on March 5, 1770.
HTR Transcription will also enhance the research experience of one of Adam Matthew Digital’s most highly anticipated collections this year, Colonial Caribbean, Module 1: Settlement, Slavery and Empire, 1624-1832, which draws upon extensive manuscript sources to chart the turbulent years of early British settlement to the rise of the abolition movement.
Time will be provided to ask questions of Quartex, Congregational Library & Archives, and Adam Matthew Digital about their collections, working in Quartex, and HTR Transcription.
