Semi-Automated Methods for BIBFRAME Work Entity Description
20 Dec 2021
This paper reports an investigation of machine learning methods for the semi-automated creation of a BIBFRAME Work entity description within the RDF linked data editor Sinopia (https://sinopia.io). The automated subject indexing software Annif was configured with the Library of Congress Subject Headings (LCSH) vocabulary from the Linked Data Service at https://id.loc.gov/. The training corpus was comprised of 9.3 million titles and LCSH linked data references from the IvyPlus POD project (https://pod.stanford.edu/) and from Share-VDE (https://wiki.share-vde.org). Semi-automated processes were explored to support and extend, not replace, professional expertise.
