SKOS-HASSET Webinar: 28 March 2013, 10:00 – 11:00

The SKOS-HASSET team will be presenting the results of its work on 28 March 2013, at 10:00 GMT via a Webinar.  Please join us to hear more about the project.  Space is limited, so do sign up with GotoWebinar to reserve your place.  After registering you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the Webinar.

The webinar will describe the work undertaken in the SKOS-HASSET project, a 10-month, JISC-funded project in the UK Data Archive, University of Essex, which ran from June 2012 until March 2013.  Its aims were to:

1. Apply SKOS to HASSET
2. Improve its online presence
3. Test its automated indexing capacity

Simple Knowledge Organization System (SKOS) is a language designed to represent thesauri and other classification resources.  It encodes these products in a standardised way, using RDF, to make their structures comparable and to facilitate interaction.

The webinar will give an overview of the aims and objectives of the project, the technologies used and the results of the automated indexing work.  For this last piece of work, SKOS-HASSET was taken as the terminology source for an automatic indexing tool (KEA) and applied to question text, variables, abstracts and publications from the Archive’s collection.  The results were compared to the gold standard of humanly-undertaken indexing. These will be presented at the webinar.  SKOS-HASSET itself will also be demonstrated.
