    HILT at Mdr HILT at Mdr Presentation Transcript

    • Help us make HILT's terminology services useful in your information service CETIS MDR SIG meeting 6 th May 2008 R. John Robertson
    • What is HILT?
      • Helping map those shovels… helping people find things where they expect/ in their own terms…
      • One of the terminology services of JISC’s e-infrastructure
    • What is HILT? (2)
      • Creating pilot web services that will deliver machine-readable terminology and cross-terminology mappings
      • Based on SRW/U, SOAP and SKOS
      • When fully operational HILT will help improve YOUR subject search and browse mechanisms (but still be invisible to your users).
      • HILT gives you machine-processable data on selected individual subject schemes (broader terms, narrower terms, hierarchy information, preferred and non-preferred terms, and so on) and interoperability data.
    • What is HILT? (3)
      • It provides the best terms for a subject search in a remote service that uses a subject scheme unfamiliar to "home service" users.
      • HILT currently has the following KOS (Knowledge Organisation Systems) mounted and available: AAT, CAB, GCMD, HASSET, IPSV, LCSH, MeSH, NMR, SCAS, UNESCO, and DDC.
      • Improving recall in a subject search of one or more databases by enriching the set of terms known to a user by providing synonyms and related terms.
      • Generating an interactive browse structure where a scheme is arranged hierarchically.
      • Taking a user's subject term and using it to identify available information services with subject coverage relevant to the query via collections and/or services databases such as IESR ( http://iesr.ac.uk/ ) and SCONE ( http://scone.strath.ac.uk/service/ )
    • HILT wants you!
      • HILT is about to begin at least six months of ‘public’ testing. Individuals or services interested in participating, should begin by joining the HILT-Collaborators email list at http://www.jiscmail.ac.uk/cgi-bin/webadmin?SUBED1=hilt-collaborators&A=1 .
      • Note: this is only for testing purposes. They cannot and should not be built into operational services.
