Poster description:

This poster presents RCIN -a digital repository developed in OZwRCIN project, being an example of cooperation between thematically diverse scientific institutes across Poland. RCIN is developed to give access to and promote digital resources coming from various Polish scientific institutes. The poster covers information on technical solutions applied to increase the accessibility of data, .e.g various metadata schemes like Dublin Core and Darwin Core, accessibility in terms of user interface as well as large-scale digitisation and underlying infrastructure (software and hardware). RCIN is built as a largescale repository that holds digital assets from all participating institutions and provides multiple ways to access the data, including a web portal for the general public, multiple smaller institutional repositories that give access to resources provided by specific institutions and various APIs.

Poster description:

Institutions are often apprehensive when moving their repository to a new repository system, as this will affect hundreds of thousands of records collected over decades and the discoverability of their institution’s
research. This poster will present statistics on item usage and discovery after repository migration, using data from an external independent repository monitoring service to show an increase in usage of up to 250% and explain how this can be achieved.

Poster description:

Many translation projects in the Arab world were not implemented, or were delayed, due to manual translation processes and/or budgetary reasons. The poster proposes the use of Artificial intelligence (AI) in the form of Arabic machine translation (MT) to develop an Arabic Terminology Management System (TMS), followed by human Post-editing of machine-translation output. The system shall ease the translation process and generate output products, such as glossaries and taxonomies.
