This paper addresses the problem of using the FRBR model to support the presentation of results. It describes a service implementing new algorithms and techniques for transforming existing MARC records into the FRBR model for this specific purpose. This work was developed in the context of the TELPlus project and processed 100,000 bibliographic and(More)
Geo-temporal criteria are important for filtering, grouping and prioritizing information resources. This presents techniques for extracting semantic geo-temporal information from text, using simple text mining methods that leverage on a gazetteer. A prototype system, implementing the proposed methods and capable of displaying information over maps and(More)
This paper presents a geo-temporal gazetteer Web service that provides access to names of places and historical periods, together with the associated geo-temporal information. Within the DIGMAP project, this gazetteer serves as the unified repository of geographic and temporal information, assisting in the mining of geo-temporal expressions over text, as(More)
DIGMAP aims to become the main international resource discovery service for digitized old maps existing in libraries. The service reuses metadata from European national libraries and other relevant third party metadata sources. The gathered metadata is enhanced locally with geographical indexing and with record linking/clustering, leveraging on geographic(More)
The Europeana Sounds 1 project aims to increase the amount of cultural audio content in Europeana. It also strongly focuses on enriching the metadata records that are aggre-gated by Europeana. To provide metadata to Europeana, Data Providers are asked to convert their records from the format and model they use internally to a specific profile of the(More)
This demo presents a user interface for a Geo-Temporal search service built in the sequence of DIGMAP project. DIGMAP was a co-funded European Union project on old digitized maps and deals with resources rich in geographic and temporal information. This search interface followed a mashup approach using existing DIGMAP components: a metadata repository, a(More)
