Free-Text Collection-Level Subject Metadata in Large-Scale Digital Libraries: A Comparative Content Analysis

Free-Text Collection-Level Subject Metadata in Large-Scale Digital Libraries: A Comparative Content Analysis

Date: 2011
Creator: Zavalina, Oksana
Description: This paper discusses free-text collection-level subject metadata in large-scale digital libraries. Abstract: Metadata is central for information organization in digital libraries. A growing number of digital libraries worldwide are now generating metadata to describe not only individual objects but entire digital collections as integral wholes. However, collection-level metadata has not yet been empirically evaluated. This paper reports results of the study that used an in-depth comparative content analysis to assess free-text collection-level subject metadata in three large-scale digital cultural heritage aggregations in the United States and Europe. As observed by this study, the emerging best practices include encoding a variety of information about a digital collection in free-text collection-level Description metadata element. This includes both subject-specific (topical, geographic and temporal coverage, and types/genres of objects in a digital collection) and non-subject-specific information: title, size, provenance, collection development, copyright, audience, navigation and functionality, language of items in a digital collection, frequency of additions, institutions that host a digital collection or contribute to it, funding sources, item creators, importance, uniqueness, and comprehensiveness of a digital collection.

UNT at ImageCLEF 2010: CLIR for Wikipedia Images

UNT at ImageCLEF 2010: CLIR for Wikipedia Images

Date: September 2010
Creator: Ruiz, Miguel E.; Chen, Jiangping; Pasupathy, Karthikeyan; Chin, Pok & Knudson, Ryan
Description: This paper presents the results of the team of the University of North Texas in the Wikipedia image retrieval track of Image-CLEF-2010. The authors' approach is based on performing translation of the French and German image captions to English and using of Language Models for generating their runs. The authors also explore the use of complex queries by asking two users to manually build queries based on the original topics distributed. The authors' results indicate that the approach of translating the image captions is feasible and yields results that are quite competitive with other teams that participated in the same track.
