Current R&D Projects

INFOMINE's research and development concentrates on two main areas: Web Crawling and Metadata Assignment. Unless otherwise noted, the software is part of iVia and freely available for download.

Research Project Overview

Web Crawling

INFOMINE uses a range of Web crawlers to discover new Internet resources:

Metadata Assignment

There are currently modules in iVia for assigning a range of metadata fields, including Title, Creator, Contributor, Publisher, Key phrases, Library of Congress Subject Headings, Library of Congress Classification, Description, Language Format (i.e. Media Type) and INFOMINE Categories.

Other Metadata Tools

The iVia Project has developed some other metadata tools that stand apart from our main metadata assignment library.
