Notes

Abstract: This article describes how the University of North Texas (UNT) Libraries' Digital Projects Unit used simple, freely-available APIs to add place names to metadata records for over 8,000 maps in two digital collections. These textual place names enable users to easily find maps by place name and to find other maps that feature the same place, thus increasing the accessibility and usage of the collections. This project demonstrates how targeted large-scale, automated metadata enhancement can have a significant impact with a relatively small commitment of time and staff resources.
