Metatareview: “All reviewers agree that this mixed methods study is well written, highly relevant for the JCDL community and provides insights into adding controlled vocabulary entries to institutional repositories.”
The paper uses The University of Zambia as a case study setting to demonstrate the adverse effect of the lack of use of controlled vocabularies. It also presents findings from a usability study conducted to assess the effect of controlled vocabularies when integrated within IR and, additionally, demonstrates the feasibility of using a multilabel supervised machine learning classifier for automatically predicting subject categories associated with computing-centric scholarly publications.
JCLD 2021 will be hosted by the School of Information Sciences of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. The event will be held between September 27–30, 2021, and will be held virtually, due to the Global Pandemic.
