A Game Of Spot The Difference: Librarians, Repository Managers, And Publishers, David Scherer Mar 2015

A Game Of Spot The Difference: Librarians, Repository Managers, And Publishers, David Scherer

Libraries Faculty and Staff Presentations

Many library publishing programs emerged from institutional repositories. This close relationship has led to the emergence of content platforms that are designed to operate under either use case, however, the missions and requirements of the two types of program differ. A repository for example, may be primarily concerned with the curation, preservation, and accessibility of their institution’s academic output whilst publishers must also concern themselves with external discoverability, search engine optimization, getting indexed in abstract databases and marketing their journals. In this session, you will hear from three successful library publishers who have embraced this external facing aspect of ...

Ontology Alignment With Mappings Published In The Purdue Research Repository, Line C. Pouchard, Michael N. Huhns Jan 2015

Ontology Alignment With Mappings Published In The Purdue Research Repository, Line C. Pouchard, Michael N. Huhns

Libraries Faculty and Staff Presentations

ESIP has been collecting and hosting Earth and Environmental ontologies in the ESIP Ontology Portal. But these ontologies have very different degrees of quality and curation. One way to ascertain this degree of quality is to locate terms with similar semantics between two ontologies and upload these mappings into the Portal. This work describes how we provide backend mappings between classes in ontologies using Agreement Maker Light, a winning algorithm from the Ontology Alignment Evaluation Initiative. We use the OWL equivalence relationship to discover similarities between concept labels. The mappings, in the form of rdf triples are published in the ...

Information professionals are relying upon standards such as ISO 16363 for certification of trustworthy digital repositories, to facilitate successful digital preservation and access. Unfortunately, archivists are sometimes forgotten in ...
