Conference ThemeCLASSIFICATION AND AUTHORITY CONTROL: Expanding Resource Discovery

Date : 29-30 October 2015

Venue: National Library of Portugal, Campo Grande 83, Lisbon, Portugal

Conference Synopsis

Linked data practices and techniques have opened new possibilities in exploiting controlled vocabularies and improving resource discovery. Authority data held in library systems, including classification schemes find new ways of expanding its potential as shared knowledge structures across the linked data environment. The objective of this conference is to explore such a potential, expanding the value and use of classification as authority controlled vocabulary, from the local perspective to the global environment. We invite experts in authority control, classification schemes and linked data to provide overviews, illustrations and analysis of classification data management and exploitation. Contributions are welcome on high quality, innovative research and practice on the following topics:

  • Classification as a component of subject authority control
  • Classification authority data formats and modeling
  • Classification and multilingual subject access
  • Sharing classification data from authority files
  • Classification data in the open linked data context
