Agenda & Notes

Review actions from 2019-02-01 Cornell LD4P2 Meeting notes

  • Steven Folsom keep track of cataloger perspective on work to support LC Names is in QA with context 
    • 2019-01-11 - Dave had added LCNAF to D.A.V.E. and Steven is working on the context needed for the search lookup UI. 
    • 2019-02-01 - Action yesterday. Working with Dave on whether that spreadsheet has all the right information.. may be resolved today?!
    • 2019-02-08 - Answer to previous maybe is "no". Need input from David Eichmannin order to resolve question of whether spreadsheet has all the right information (particularly about need for prefLabel or not, language tags or not) → Steven Folsom will write up new issue and Lynette Raylewill review; Steven Folsomwill then follow up with Dave 
  • Lynette Rayle priority is completion of
    • 2019-01-25: significant progress. refactored code showing context; fails on certain LD paths and doesn't expand out URIs (e.g.: if do broader, will only give URI, not URI + label) - has not yet attempted to correct. Other Significant item: LDPath gem is doing load for graph every time it tries to access something (SLOW)... may need to fork LDPath gem to make more efficient since will not need to reload graph every time (for our use case). 
    • 2019-02-08 symptoms as above...
  • Lynette Rayle (from discussion of LC Names in QA with context) 1) investigate & document algorithm for selection of languages with label and/or no label. In cases like AgroVoc where languages are handled well then we just want to document the (good) algorithm; but in other cases where language information is wrong we need to be able to turn that off (need more config for this)
    • 2019-02-08 no update
  • Steven Folsom going thru CUL's D&A Jira (next week or so):
  • Huda Khan & Steven Folsom to go through spreadsheet assessing difficulty and "linked data wow" factor (BfB)
    • 2019-02-08 no update, will schedule "bang for buck" (BfB) meeting next week
