  • The problem is that users don’t find what they need – and more importantly, they don’t find what the organization wants them to discover! This is because the knowledge surrounding the key revenue driving assets is often siloed, disorganized and disjointed. [Click] Content – journal articles, conference proceedings, and newsletters might be hosted in multiple archives; [Click] People – society members, authors, editors, reporters, bloggers – might be found in a database or member-only portal; and [Click] Programs – conferences, workshops, products, and services – might be somewhere else! When someone searching for an article doesn’t learn about an upcoming conference on that same subject, or fails to connect with fellow members or other experts, then the organization fails to reach its potential. [CLICK]
  • So how do we solve this problem? In an XML-driven world, we do it by enriching the content: [Click] By creating well-formed metadata around people, places, and things, By tagging subjects, using a taxonomy built for the vertical market or discipline; and [Click] By combining human understanding with automated processes to insure consistency and efficiency. This provides a number of benefits: [Click] - Improve the search experience on your site: better precision and recall; and user-friendly features [Click] - Serve the needs of different markets, with different views of the content [Click] - Unlock the value of “long-tail” content: Increase discovery, repurpose and cross-market content [Click] - Increase web traffic with improved Search Engine Optimization [Click] - Enable visualization and interactive functionality – a gateway to further discovery [Click] - Provide easy-to-use current awareness tools that alert subscribers to new content in subjects of interest. I am going to show you how a couple of organizations have created better user experiences, increased revenue, and reduced costs through Access Innovations data enrichment and the Data Harmony software.
  • What we’re really talking about here are the systems by which we organize the knowledge assets of our organizations. At it’s simplest level, you might have an uncontrolled list – such as the keywords that authors pick with they submit their manuscripts – there is no attempt to seek agreement on the meanings of terms [click] A step up in organizing and increasing finadability is to standardize names, like institutional names, place names, or chemical formulas [click] Synonym sets help expand a search. These are often used in search engines [click] Controlled vocabularies mandate the use of predefined, authorized terms, turning natural language into terms computers can easily understand [click] A taxonomy introduces the hierarchical relationships between terms, as in Parent/Child relationships: for example, Microbiology would be a child or a narrower term under the broader term, “biology” [click] A Thesaurus adds the associative relationships, like synonyms and related terms, as well as extras like scope notes, editorial notes, codes for different classification systems [click] An ontology can include further descriptors showing different kinds of relationship, like “a catalyzes b” [click] A semantic network – sometimes called “Linked Data” enables the expression of ad hoc and dynamic relationships, like friend of a friend The simplest of systems are unrelated and often ambiguous entities; and those at the top of the list are more meaningful, and consequently the most useful. If you think of this from the perspective of costs – your organization and users pay a premium price in more time spent searching and organizing the content every time they do a project I am going to show you a number of ways that publishers and scholarly organizations have used these strategies of semantic enrichment to create new value for their organizations through better user experiences and increased revenue, while at the same time reducing costs through Access Innovations data enrichment and the Data Harmony software.
  • Our solution will transform ERIC from a static repository of information into a true community of interconnected stakeholders Dramatically improves processing time and quality through the use of a proven, field-tested product in Data Harmony Our solution is architecture for the future to capitalize on emerging technologies which will enhance the ERIC community We have spoken with ERIC “power-users” and incorporated their feedback into our solution.

  • Let’s watch these numbers shift as social applications increasingly facilitate asynchronous, many-to-many communications between peers.
  • In February, the IEEE released their new Xplore platform, providing access to more than 2 million articles from more than 12,000 publications. In planning for this upgrade, IEEE client services managers traveled around the world to solicit feedback on the features most desired by academic, corporate, and government customers. Among the features that were highly requested by users was subject browsing. [CLICK] In preparation for this new feature, Access Innovations updated and restructured the thesaurus to reflect the many changes in the engineering fields over the past few years. [CLICK] The Data Harmony software tools, powered by Machine-Aided Indexing or MAI, increased productivity in the indexing staff, enabling more comprehensive coverage at reduced cost. [CLICK] The result has been a critically acclaimed upgrade to one of the world’s richest technology information resources.
  • NICEM, the National Information Center for Educational Media, is a database of over 640,000 audio and visual items in all subject areas that apply to learning, from preschool through professional. Access Innovations applies subject terms from the NICEM taxonomy to each bibliographic record. In addition to that backend data work, we also created a search and presentation layer for the website, which we call Search Harmony. Here are some of the user-friendly features that are included in Search Harmony: [Click] Users can navigate the site by browsing the full taxonomy, and see the number of records tagged with each subject [CLICK] Auto-completion of search terms, which is a common feature of many search engines, but in this case the user is assisted in formulating a search by seeing a pick list of terms from the taxonomy, including all synonyms – even if they appear in the middle of a phrase. [CLICK] The user is also guided to expand the topic with broader terms or related terms from the taxonomy, or narrow the search to find more precise information. [CLICK] The resulting site has been recognized as an indispensable resource for educators.
  • Expands to 2 nd and 3 rd levels of taxonomy, includes Related Terms
  • Thanks to Helen Atkins of AACR for this illustration. The real power of this is that the links can all go in all directions, so we take advantage of having the user’s attention regardless of how they step into our “web”
  • Linking Data Elements to External Resources
  • But as various efforts are made to create profiles, the big question often comes down to “Is this the same person?” from one repository to another.
  • American Chemical Society had separate reviewer lists for all journals. Difficult to find the expertise to review articles Paper based Now use the taxonomy, reviewers and member profiles used to quickly find appropriate experts
  • But now let’s take the challenge a step further: These repositories of people data are not walled gardens. The real power of the web is in connecting to all the instances where a person might be named. Each of these different repositories serves a specific market and supports specific applications. How do we create some consistency as we move across these interconnected data stores?

    1. 1. Taxonomies for Publishing:  Enhancing the User Experience August 31, 2011 11:30am-12:30pm Eastern Marjorie Hlava, President [email_address] Access Innovations, Inc. www.accessinn.com
    2. 2. Abstract <ul><li>In the modern environment of Web-hosted content, where users can instantly find and access vast numbers of works, the competitive value of a journal article, a book, or a collection is increasingly derived from users’ ability to connect the information contained within the works themselves with other content that is important to them. This ability to create instant connections between works that have been heretofore kept separate or “siloed” – by journal title, content type, or publishing house – represents a revolution in the way users search for, consume, and pay for information. This trend has been happening for several years, often to the commercial disadvantage of publishers: by indexing every page on the Web, Google has changed the economy of publishing to one that is increasingly based around the article or the chapter, rather than the journal or the book. Instead of starting at a journal’s home page, users go directly to articles, bypassing the publisher’s home page branding and revenue-generating advertising . Google has effectively become the “hub” connecting all content on the Web. Nearly all of the major publishing organizations are discovering that in order to protect their brands and preserve the value of subscription sales, they need to become more active participants in this process and create new paths that enable users to find additional value within their content collections. </li></ul>
    3. 3. The Publisher Challenge: Google is a one stop shop and they index your content Information-rich assets, unconnected from each other, leave the total organization less than the sum of its parts <ul><li>Information in Silos </li></ul><ul><li>Disjointed content </li></ul><ul><li>Untapped value within archives – new products </li></ul><ul><li>Points of contact vary </li></ul>Content People Programs
    4. 4. The Taxonomy Solution not just to be discovered ….. Subjects: Concepts Entities: People, Places, Things
    5. 5. Fight back!
