• Classification and Linked Data

    These two modules were developed as part of an IHR Digital project, called the TOBIAS Project, funded by the Arts and Humanities Reseach Council (AHRC) to make the RHS Vocabulary for British and Irish History freely available in various formats. It also tested the feasibility of automatically classifying history materials using the vocabulary and machine learning. Read more about the project.


    The Tutorials: These two tutorials are independent. However, if you are interested in subject classification (but are not very familiar with them) you might find it useful to complete the Classification tutorial before the Linked Data tutorial. 

    • classificationThis tutorial is a brief and concise introduction to classification and cataloguing. It should give you a clear understanding of these concepts and how they are applied. It has three parts:

      1 Explaining classification and cataloguing 

      2 An introduction to the Bibliography of British and Irish History and classifying using a thesaurus 

      3 Producing a thesaurus - cataloguing, controlled vocabularies, synonyms, homonyms and hierarchies
