Abstract

In this paper, we present a fully-implemented system using computational linguistic techniques to apply automatic text mining for the extraction of metadata for image access. We describe the implementation of a workbench created for, and evaluated by, image catalogers. We discuss the current functionality and future goals for this image catalogers' toolkit, developed under the Computational Linguistics for Metadata Building (CLiMB) research project.1 Our primary user group for initial phases of the project is the cataloger expert; in future work we address applications for end users.
