*sorry for crossposting* Dear Colleagues, we would like to announce a project, which is currently being carried out at Bielefeld University Library: "Automatic enrichment of OAI metadata by means of computational linguistics methodology and developement of services for content-based integration of repositories" Project description: Having access to high-quality scientific information is an important prerequisite of scholarship. The increasing availability of electronic publications in content-stores (repositories) distributed over the internet and their aggregation within the framework of the Open Archives Initiative (OAI) substantially contribute to this already. The project "Automatic enrichment of OAI metadata by means of computational linguistics methodology and developement of services for content-based integration of repositories" funded by the German Research Foundation (Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft, DFG) aims at the enhancement of subject classification for these scientific documents using OAI metadata. The project is a cooperation between Bielefeld University Library, the Department of Computational Linguistics at Bielefeld University (Professor Alexander Mehler), and the Department of Computer Science at the University of Leipzig (Professor Gerhard Heyer). Within the scope of the project, documents lacking sufficient classificatory information are to be classified automatically using different schemes, in a first step the Dewey Decimal Classification (DDC), by means of computational linguistics methodology. The classification information will be integrated into the metadata and can then be used in different contexts, e.g. it can be returned to the repositories or included in scientific search engines like the Bielefeld Academic Search Engine (BASE). The data will be made available to other organizations for further re-use. Eventually, the normalized data shall facilitate the semantic integration of distributed repositories. Semantic browsing and search will become feasible and improve the quality of electronic literature search and retrieval. The project combines the fields of digital libraries and text technology (computational linguistics): The University Library provides access to high-quality document collections through a standardized interface, whereas the text technology delivers the linguistically based classification results. Project management: Dr. Wolfram Horstmann, CIO Scientific Information at Bielefeld University Contact and further information: Mathias Loesch email@example.com Project funding: Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft Duration: 2 years (starting October 2009) If you have any questions or comments, please do not hesitate to contact me.
