DALNET Staff present at Innovation in Libraries 2012

Innovation in Libraries  

Steven K. Bowers and Jing Jing Wu presented a session titled "Florence & The Machine: Data Extraction & Auto Record Creation" at the OCLC-sponsored Innovation in Libraries 2012 LITA Forum post-conference. They discussed automated creation of MARC records for the popular TED Talks video series and web scale creation of metadata for online resources that provide organized open access to unique digital library collections.  Working with the machine, "Florence," the librarian, still plays a future role in organizing bibliographic metadata.  Browse the TED Collection in the DALNET union catalog.
