The workshop will explore the potential of Knowledge Organization Systems (KOS), such as classification systems, taxonomies, thesauri, ontologies, and lexical databases, in the context of current developments and possibilities, including health related aspects. These tools help model the underlying semantic structure of a domain for purposes of information retrieval, knowledge discovery, language engineering, etc. The workshop provides an opportunity to discuss projects, research and development activities, evaluation approaches, lessons learned, and research findings. A further objective is to systematically engage in discussions in common areas of interest with selected related communities and to investigate potential cooperation.

The goal of this workshop is to engage communities interested in the broad topic of literature reference understanding and automatic processing of scientific fulltext publications. Our workshop has a focus on working with open infrastructures/tools and offering the extracted information as open data for reuse. Our view is to expose people from one community to the work of the respective other community and to foster fruitful interaction across communities.

Web Archiving and Digital Libraries (WADL) 2022

The 2022 edition of the Workshop on Web Archiving and Digital Libraries (WADL) will explore the integration of web archiving and digital libraries. The workshop aims at addressing aspects covering the entire life cycle of digital resources, including creation/authoring, uploading/publishing, crawling, indexing, exploration, and archiving. It will also explore areas such as archiving processes and tools for “non-traditional” resources such as social media, scholarly and government datasets, 3D objects, and digital online art.

Workshop on Digital Infrastructures for Scholarly Content Objects (DISCO'22)

As digital libraries make the dissemination of research publications easier, they also create an information flood severely challenging findability and enable the propagation of invalid or unreliable knowledge. The first workshop on Digital Infrastructures for Scholarly Content Objects (DISCO'21) was held in conjunction with the 2021 ACM/IEEE Joint Conference on Digital Libraries as a one-day workshop on September 30th, 2021. Central topics were focused around the digital publishing process, including content validation, reuse, or retraction, semantic metadata for new discovery methods, and the utilization of scientific argumentation within and across documents. The second DISCO workshop is dedicated to propelling an ongoing dialogue between the computer science, information science, and library science communities necessary for building innovative, value-adding, and sustainable digital infrastructures in digital libraries. The lessons learned in this workshop series will serve as foundation for a roadmap on digital infrastructure development in digital libraries.

This workshop will provide participants with an opportunity to discuss issues relating to the deposit and archiving of e-only theses; and create a forum for promoting inter-institutional collaboration and knowledge exchange. The workshop aims to invite discussion in the following areas:
- Challenges, barriers, opportunities, current practice, and lessons learnt from existing efforts.
- Updates necessary in workflows, processes, and documentation; as well as elements that digital preservation policy and practice should include to cater for e-only theses submission.
- Methods to capture embargoes, supplementary research data and non-traditional theses into IR and digital preservation records.
- Stakeholder requirements that need to be considered to facilitate submission of e-only theses and their preservation.

Tutorials

 

Building Digital Library Collections with Greenstone~3 Tutorial

This tutorial is designed for those who want an introduction to building a digital library using an open source software program. The  tutorial will focus on the Greenstone digital library software. In particular, participants will work with the Greenstone Librarian Interface, a flexible graphical user interface designed for developing and managing digital library collections. Attendees do not require programming expertise, however they should be familiar with HTML and the Web, and be aware of representation standards such as Unicode, Dublin Core and XML. The Greenstone software has a pedigree of more than two decades, with  over 1 million downloads from SourceForge. This tutorial will introduce users to Greenstone~3 -- a version of the software designed to take better advantage of newer standards and web technologies that have been developed since the previous implementation of Greenstone. Written in Java, the software is more modular in design to increase the flexibility and extensibility of the software. Emphasis in the tutorial is placed on where Greenstone 3 goes beyond what Greenstone 2

Open Refine to Wikibase

This tutorial aims to help researchers, digital collection librarians and data managers make their datasets available as linked open data. Participants have the option to either bring their own dataset or work with a sample dataset provided by the organizers. They will take part in practical exercises and learn how to use OpenRefine for data transformation and Wikibase for data storage. This pipeline workflow was developed in the context of NFDI4Culture, a German consortium of research and cultural institutions working towards a shared infrastructure for research data that meets the needs of 21st century data creators, maintainers and end users.
