Catalyst Fund Webinar Series: Applying Machine Learning on Digital Library Images
Live Online $0.00 / $0.00


Metadata is the bedrock of Digital Library systems, as it helps in users discovering the unique content in various collections housed in digital libraries. But creating metadata is a time-intensive process. At J. Willard Marriott Library, University of Utah, we experimented with machine learning algorithms to generate descriptive metadata for digital images, thanks to funding from Lyrasis. In this webinar, we will share the results of our work, and also lessons learned from working with digital library data and machine learning algorithms.

Harish Maringanti is the Associate Dean for IT & Digital Library Services at the J. Willard Marriott Library, and in this role he is responsible for advancing Library’s technology initiatives including strategy, policies, compliance, business processes, and infrastructure. His primary research interests include applications of emerging technologies in digital libraries. Previously, he served in various roles at Kansas State University Libraries and led several technology initiatives. He holds an M.S. in Computing and Information Sciences and a graduate certificate in organizational Leadership, both from Kansas State University, and a B.E from Osmania University, India.
