Abstract

We demonstrate a metadata enrichment system for the Europeana digital library. The system allows different institutions which provide to Europeana pointers (in the form of metadata records - MRs) to their content to enrich their MRs by classifying them under a classification scheme of their choice, and to extract/highlight entities of significant interest within the MRs themselves. The use of a supervised learning metaphor allows each content provider (CP) to generate classifiers and extractors tailored to the CP’s specific needs, thus allowing the tool to be effectively available to the multitude (2000+) of Europeana CPs.
