To study wooden slips from archaeological excavations, our first task is to carry out character interpretation, then wooden slips restoration. Only on this basis can we then further conduct social systems research. The goal of this project is to utilize the existing Wooden Slips Character Dictionary in order to understand whether digital humanities tools can contribute to key breakthroughs in wooden slips research. "Wooden Slips Character Dictionary Development Project – An Exploration of the Structure and Technology of Open Source Database" is the predecessor of this project, executed by Academia Sinica's Institute of History and Philology in cooperation with the Academia Sinica Center for Digital Cultures. In order to enhance the environment for interpretation research, and to create a verbatim interpretation tool for wooden slip images, the project developed the Wooden Slips Character Dictionary based on the Edsen-Gol Wooden Slips database from The Institute of History and Philology's collection. Moreover, together with five other organizations, including the Nara National Research Institute for Cultural Properties, we built the "Multi-database Search System for Historical Chinese Characters," conforming with International Image Interoperability Framework (IIIF) standards and specifications. Through interoperable character images from different collections, we progressively created an integrated tool for the overall development of the cultural field of studying Chinese characters. In 2020, the Wooden Slips Character Dictionary attained its stated goal of constructing an open source database, but whether it is substantially beneficial to the development of wooden slips research still remains to be seen. This project will identify each step in traditional character interpretation and wooden slips restoration, and will introduce the functions of the Wooden Slips Character Dictionary into each work phase. By measuring accuracy of outcomes for character interpretation and wooden slips restoration, we can explore the possibility of making a breakthrough achievement in current humanities research with the assistance of digital humanities tools.
