As digital libraries have grown, so has the need for developing more effective ways to access collections. This talk will present an overview of the newly-initiated CLiMB project (Computational Linguistics for Metadata Building), funded by the Mellon Foundation and currently underway at Columbia University ( The goal of the project is to use computational linguistic techniques to extract metadata relevant to image collections, and thus to improve access. This research addresses the access bottleneck by applying the latest natural language techniques to the problem of identifying descriptive metadata. Our results will eventually be loaded into a database for image search, although we have not yet reached this phase of the project. This talk will report on research in CLiMB's first phase. In addition, the talk will provide an overview of selected digital library projects at Columbia, in terms of collections, access and technology. 


Dr. Judith L. Klavans is Director of the Center for Research on Information Access (CRIA) at Columbia University. The center was established as a bridge to link research in computer science with the needs of libraries in creating and improving access to digital resources.
