Short description:

FACT (Folktales as Classifiable Texts) aims at developing software for the automatical description of folktales into the Dutch Folktale Database, enriching them with metadata such as language, names, keywords, genres, summaries and catalogue numbers (or folktale types). These tools will turn the Dutch Folktale Database into a sophisticated online heritage archive as well as a research tool. Furthermore, research is being done into new possible classifications and clusterings of folktales.
