OpenURL and Canonical Citation Linking in Classics: A Collaborative Project at Cornell between Classics and the University Library

Other Titles

Abstract

The presenters will be reporting on work that came out of their Mellon planning grant with Professor Eric Rebillard. In the first section of the forum, Adam Chandler will report on progress in creating transparent and scalable metrics for evaluating the quality of OpenURLs across content providers. In the second part of the forum, David Ruddy and Professor Rebillard will discuss a domain specific resolution service called the Classical Works Knowledge Base (CWKB). This service allows for the assembly and maintenance of specialized knowledge about works within its domain and about online resources that can provide services related to those works. It understands the linking heuristics used by online text resources within its domain and is able to create for any given canonical citation one or many URLs that can take users to specific texts within these resources, and ideally to specific passages. Although this example, and the focus of the study, concerns Classical literature, such domain specific knowledge bases would operate in the same way for other disciplines.
