TEMIS Selected by National Agricultural Library to Automate Indexing Process


9/27/2011 10:39:11 AM

New York, NY – September 27, 2011 – TEMIS, the leading provider of Semantic Content Enrichment Solutions for the Enterprise, today announced it was awarded a major contract by the National Agricultural Library (NAL), one of the world's largest agricultural information collections, part of the United States Department of Agriculture. NAL will use Luxid® for Content Enrichment to automatically index hundreds of thousands of documents annually.

To keep up with the escalating demand for its information services, NAL has acquired through TEMIS an automated indexing software that vastly expands the potential number of articles indexed each year while simultaneously achieving a high level of quality.

TEMIS will tackle NAL’s indexing challenge with its Luxid® for Content Enrichment Platform, the industry-leading and award-winning Text Mining platform that turns unstructured data into actionable knowledge, enabling advanced content enrichment for indexing, enhanced search and navigation, content analysis and strategic information discovery. Luxid®’s automated categorization process will rely on the NAL Agricultural Thesaurus (NALT), a key component of the library’s organizational tools.

“We’re thrilled to assist the USDA in meeting this strategic challenge”, said Guillaume Mazieres, Executive Vice President North American Operations of TEMIS. “We will deploy Luxid® 6 to fully take advantage of NAL’s thesaurus and help make the Library’s amazing information collections even more accessible to its wide variety of constituents.”

With Luxid® for Content Enrichment driving its indexing processes, NAL expects significant productivity gains: six in-house indexers will be able to index by subject 300,000 articles per year, a four-fold increase over the current average indexer’s level of production. The assignment of subject retrieval terms in NAL’s AGRICOLA Index (aka “subject indexing”) is currently performed entirely by human indexers who average 75,000 articles each year.

About the National Agricultural Library

The National Agricultural Library is one of four national libraries of the United States, with locations in Beltsville, Maryland and Washington, D.C. It houses one of the world's largest and most accessible agricultural information collections and serves as the nexus for a national network of state land-grant and U.S. Department of Agriculture field libraries. Every year NAL delivers tens of millions of direct customer service transactions, a record that is growing year upon year.
