Recommendations

Kate Fernie

PATHS has prepared a short report setting out recommendations on the use of open source software for the automatic enrichment of Digital Library content.

PATHS has been using text processing software to enable functionality in the prototype system specifically:

●    intra-collection links

●    background links

●    ontology extension

The aim of PATHS has been to investigate the use software to enable these functionalities and much of the software used has been is in-house and relatively complex. However there are projects which are releasing open source software and the goal of this document is to present an overall set of recommendations for the automatic enrichment of Digital Library content using such software.

It is intended to be useful for third-parties who would like to offer enrichment services. The report provides an overall view of the software required and the programming effort involved.
