→Distributed Remediation: Small tools for big problems:
* Matt Miller, firstname.lastname@example.org, New York Public Library, NYPL Labs
Remediation of legacy data can be automated only so much. Certain essential cleanup tasks, such as aligning a name with the correct authorized version, is very difficult for a computer yet trivial for a person. While it is these types remediations that will allow an institution to take advantage and participate in the web of Linked Open Data, a wholly manual approach is unrealistic. However, by augmenting automated remediation with a light human touch we can quickly and efficiently reach our goals. This talk will look at tools and methods being developed at NYPL Labs to empower library staff and the public to help clean up our legacy metadata.
