Abstract

This poster supplements the track, Developing a Names-based Architecture for Linking Biodiversity Data.

Developing a names-based architecture assumes you have good, clean names to work with. While this assumption generally holds true for modern born-digital literature, the process of digitising legacy literature is not perfect and can result in errors. Therefore, when extending the names-based architecture back in time it is necessary to take into account the possibility of these errors.

The poster briefly introduces some of the common errors made when digitising legacy literature and what can be achieved automatically to resolve the errors so that good, clean names only are passed into the architecture.
