The Metadata Assignment and Search Tool Project
"Researchers at the Center for Natural Language Processing (CNLP) at the School of Information Studies at Syracuse University are working to make more of these collections available online or through digital libraries. The Institute of Museum and Library Services Building Digital Collections program provided 1,000 in support to CNLP and a team from Digital Learning Sciences (DLS) at the University Corporation for Atmospheric Research in Boulder, Colo. The presenter and her research team will integrate three digital library tools and services to create a new hybrid, computer-assisted cataloging system, the Metadata Assignment and Search Tool (MAST). The MAST project will enable libraries and museums to describe and disseminate their digital materials--whether they are photos, drawings, historical records, or school lesson plans--efficiently. The presenter will give us an overview and update with the MAST project." -- iSchool Researchers Improving Access to Digital Resources, Syracuse University School of Information Studies Press Release, 10/9/2007.
