National Agricultural Library
The National Agricultural Library is one of four national libraries of the United States, with locations in Beltsville, Maryland and Washington, D.C. It houses one of the world's largest and most accessible agricultural information collections and serves as the nexus for a national network of state land-grant and U.S. Department of Agriculture field libraries. Every year NAL delivers tens of millions of direct customer service transactions, a record that is growing year upon year.
TEMIS Selected by National Agricultural Library to Automate Indexing Process
Semantic enrichment software leader to assist US Department of Agriculture in meeting strategic productivity goals
To keep up with the escalating demand for its information services, NAL has acquired through TEMIS an automated indexing software that vastly expands the potential number of articles indexed each year while simultaneously achieving a high level of quality.
TEMIS will tackle NAL's indexing challenge with its Luxid® for Content Enrichment Platform, the industry-leading and award-winning Text Mining platform that turns unstructured data into actionable knowledge, enabling advanced content enrichment for indexing, enhanced search and navigation, content analysis and strategic information discovery. Luxid®'s automated categorization process will rely on the NAL Agricultural Thesaurus (NALT), a key component of the library's organizational tools.
