Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Automated Processes for Subject Access

Deadline: April 30, 2021

The library community has invested in the development of 
knowledge organization systems (KOS, such as subject headings, 
thesauri, taxonomies, classification, etc.) to represent general 
knowledge or domain-specific knowledge and standardize 
vocabularies with the ultimate goal to describe information 
resources and provide effective access to these resources. These 
knowledge organization systems are of great importance to the 
subject representation of resource content and subject access to 
information. Current solutions enable shifting from the 
traditional manual processes to the use of technologies in the 
development of KOS, subject indexing, classification, and 

This special issue of Cataloging & Classification Quarterly (CCQ) 
will illustrate technologies, methods, and projects that 
implement semantic web technologies, artificial intelligence 
(AI), machine learning, and other automated processes, standards 
and best practices for various stages of knowledge information, 
including KOS development, indexing and classification, and 
retrieval and access, with additional attention to ethical and 
licensing considerations.

Potential topics include (but are not limited to):

   *   Artificial Intelligence (AI) in libraries
   *   Automated processes for metadata creation
   *   Automated processes for quality estimation and quality management
   *   Semantic web in knowledge organization
   *   Integration of Linked Open Data (LOD) in authorities & knowledge organization systems (thesauri,
classifications, ontologies)
   *   AI/machine learning in knowledge representation, thesaurus construction, and classification schema
   *   AI/machine learning in subject indexing and classification
   *   Automated subject indexing and classification
   *   Technologies, standards, and best practices
   *   Ethics of AI in knowledge organization
   *   KO open data licensing

Papers should follow the CCQ Instructions for Authors available at:
