ASTM International Partners with Scope to Enhance Findability in its Digital Library Content

By Theresa Cramer

From the press release:

Under the agreement, Scope will be developing domain-specific, multi-level taxonomy for the vast array of content within ASTM’s Standards and Engineering Digital Library (SEDL). With over 1,400 ebooks, 60,000 articles and chapters, and 12,000 standards, the ASTM Standards and Engineering Digital Library is one of the world’s most comprehensive engineering resources. Scope will also develop facets with a taxonomic structure to enable robust cross domain search, as well as creating an expanded list of keywords to be mapped to the taxonomy and facets accordingly. This content enhancement project aims to provide a more precise search experience to the Digital Library end users, allow drilled-down navigation, as well as the ability to conduct effective searches across content domains.
