Virtual National Phonoteque
Horová, Iva ; Malinová, Iva ; Allen, Anthony
This year, the National Library of Technology of the Czech Republic became the new administrator of the Virtual National Phonoteque (VNP). This unique database is the aggregator of audio documents stored in Czech institutions. The portal collects metadata across different types of institutions: libraries, archives, museums, commercial publishers, Czech Radio, Czech Television and even private collectors, making them all accessible in one location. Visitors to the portal can use it to locate metadata records for the item of interest, thereafter finding themselves with several options: to visit the owner of the audio to listen to it there or borrow it, to buy it in the publisher’s e-shop, or to view and listen digitised version directly. The portal currently contains about one and a half million metadata records and pools data from 24 suppliers. Thanks to our established collaborations we are now undertaking more projects and working towards taking the next steps. In cooperation with Supraphon we are working on a new service for NLT visitors, who will have exclusive direct access to the Supraphon Digital Archive, allowing them to listen music via headphones and on mobile devices from within our library. Our immediate targets for next two years are to involve and cooperate with more suppliers to enrich the VNP´s content, and to develop a new version of the portal to meet all the criteria of a modern, secure database.

Adding Geographic Coordinates Based on Track Record to Photographs
Mareš, Jiří ; Orság, Filip (referee) ; Semerád, Lukáš (advisor)
The aim of this bachelor thesis is to fill photos metadata with geographic coordinates using a track record obtained from the GPS system. Besides the automated process, users are given the ability to modify or fill the data themselves through a map canvas with the recorded track. The goal is to implement simple user-friendly application for this purpose. The Application was created using the Java programming language and this allows for great multiplatform compatibility.
Search for Duplicities of Photos
Sklenář, Zdeněk ; Hradiš, Michal (referee) ; Zemčík, Pavel (advisor)
This bachelor thesis is about the analysis, design, implementation and testing of an application which is used to find duplicates in photographs according to its Exif metadata. The application also enables preview of photos, including Exif metadata. Additionally it is possible to filter photos, group duplicities with the original photo, and select the best photos to keep it in accordance with a user-defined parameter, then manually adjust this option, and deleting others. It is also a possible to export selected photos to a ZIP archive.
System for Management and Selection of Photos
Blažek, Tomáš ; Lysek, Tomáš (referee) ; Zemčík, Pavel (advisor)
The goal of this bachelor thesis was to create a system for management and selection photos, that should allow users to effectively search in a large number of photos. Criteria of selection include search by elements occurring in the photo, address of place and date of creation photo. Final result is the system implemented in Python language using open source neural network implemented in C language.

Enriching Library Metadata with APIs
Mak, Lucas
Given the ever-dwindling resources assigned to metadata creation, individual libraries are hard-pressed to create and maintain high quality traditional metadata across-the-board, let alone to prepare and transform legacy data into linked data. Coming up with no additional support by looking inside, one should look outside for resources that can help mitigate the situation. Nowadays, libraries no longer monopolize metadata creation. More and more special domain communities have set up Wikipedia-like crowd-sourced portals to serve information needs of their members. At the same time, there are international initiatives in the library community to set up data stores for linked data sets. Can the library tap into these rich information resources, in an efficient way, to enrich library metadata in the traditional way as well as prepare the legacy data for the big migration? This presentation will discuss how Michigan State University Libraries is able to harvest selected metadata from various library and non-library community based portals through APIs (Application Programming Interface) in a batch and automated fashion to enrich existing metadata of a popular music collection and enhance them with URIs for linked data conversion down the road.

From XML to MARC: RDF Behind the Scenes
Nicolas, Yann
We collect heterogeneous metadata packages from various publishers. Although all of them are in XML, they vary a lot in terms of vocabulary, structure, granularity, precision, and accuracy. It is quite a challenge to cope with this jungle and recycling it to meet the needs of the Sudoc, the French academic union cataloguing system. How to integrate and enrich these metadata? How to integrate them in order to process them in a regular way, not through ad hoc processes? How to integrate them with specific or generic controlled vocabularies ? How to enrich them with author identifiers, for instance? RDF looks like the ideal solution for integration and enrichment. Metadata are stored in the Virtuoso RDF database and processed through a workflow steered by the Oracle DB. We will illustrate this generic solution with Oxford UP metadata: ONIX records for printed books and KBART package description for ebooks. So. A relational database as glue and pipeline engine… RDF as internal model… MARC as output …. Quite weird… Was this abstract written by an ELAG-specific random text generator?

ABC: Amsterdam Blended Collections: The Local Amsterdam Cultural Heritage Linked Open Data Network
Koster, Lukas
The presentation will discuss the organisational and technical issues of the project on two levels: 1) the central platform (blend/aggregate or de-blend/distribute) and 2) the various local situations of participating institutions, leading to different blending/de-blending approaches, focusing on the Library of the University of Amsterdam Special Collections (using Catmandu as ETL tool for MARC to RDF).
