Deliverable location: Internal
Digital metadata collections are valuable for cataloguing and information retrieval. They provide structured data that has a foreseen impact on developing methods, applications and tools, and they are increasingly recognized as a potential research object that allows large-scale statistical comparisons, albeit often only after substantial harmonization, enrichment, and curation.
We currently have the National bibliography of Finland with metadata of Finnish printings, audiovisual material and web material across several centuries to the current time available through kansalliskirjasto.finna.fi and as linked open data at data.nationallibrary.fi. The WP4.1 delivers harmonized version of the Finnish National Bibliography (FNB) and release the data, code, workflows, and analysis tools under an open license. D4.1.1 (Q3/2022) suffered from recruitment delays but the research assistant has been actively working on the project and CSC integration and it seems realistic that this deliverable can be completed by the end of Q4/2022.
