Ex Libris Embarks on a Project Regarding the Use of AI for Special Collections

Ex Libris is posting a blog series on artificial intelligence (AI). The fifth entry, “Metadata Generation for Digital Content,” states the following:

Special collections are often the gem of a library and deserve to be easily accessible to library patrons. At Ex Libris, part of Clarivate, we are prioritizing this vision as we work on metadata enrichment via AI for digital resources. …

We’re currently working with beta testers from our passionate user community to better understand the challenges of special collection librarians and catalogers at academic institutions and to help develop a forward-looking solution that can make their work easier and more robust. 

For example, AI has strong capabilities when it comes to identifying the faces of people in pictures—this technology is a popular feature on Apple, Google and social media platforms. Now, imagine if a cataloger could leverage this ability for organizing hundreds or thousands of photos in digital collections, quickly and with a high degree of accuracy. 

For more information, read the blog post.
