Abstract

The Linked Data collection “Rainis and Aspazija” (RunA) and the potential of IFLA FRBR LRM key entities for annotating textual documents

Work on the development of the Linked Data collection RunA (Rainis and Aspazija — two famous Latvian poets, writers and opinion leaders) by the National Library of Latvia (NLL), the National Archives of Latvia, the Institute of Literature, Folklore and Art of the University of Latvia, the Association of Memorial Museums and the Literature and Music Museum is in progress. In June 2016 the pilot collection RunA was publicly launched as a virtual collection accessible via URL link: http://runa.lnb.lv/. Authors address the problem of named entity identification by annotating textual documents (unstructured data), e.g. correspondence. The collection development team has identified key entities: works, expressions, manifestations; agents: persons, institutions; concepts, places, events as the “glue” for reflecting simple or hierarchical relationships between different objects of the collection. In current development stage mainly local URIs are provided for identification of entities. This paper will address potential to employ IFLA FRBR LRM key classes in annotating textual documents of RunA collection by using special annotation tool.
