    Growing while remaining efficient

    With  NetGroup

    The joint platform of libraries Minu Raamatukogu (eng My Library) or MIRKO enables the collection of many libraries to be gathered on a common virtual bookshelf. Now you can easily borrow all your favourite books with just a few clicks.

    In collaboration with Eesti Rahvusraamatukogu, this project has created a modern solution for findability and movement of books to readers across Estonia. The purpose of the nationwide service is to combine e-catalogs and allows the user to order the desired books from home.

    MIRKO is now LIVE and available to all Estonian residents. Go borrow some books because reading is fundamental!

    Helping the National Heritage Board to estimate the stability of museum objects using artificial intelligence?

    with STACC

    Did you know that artificial intelligence can also be used in museums? The Estonian National Heritage Board launched an exciting project called kratt Sälli* whose purpose is to make conducting inventories in museums quicker and more convenient. Due to the large amount of museum objects, it is not feasible for museum staff to thoroughly examine them all.

    Developing an Automatic Subject Indexing Tool for The National Library of Estonia.
    By Texta

    Manual subject indexing in libraries is a time-consuming and costly process and the quality of the assigned subjects is affected by the cataloguer’s knowledge on the specific topics contained in the book. Trying to solve these issues, we exploited the opportunities arising from artificial intelligence to develop Kratt: a prototype of an automatic subject indexing tool. Kratt is able to subject index a book independent of its extent and genre with a set of keywords present in the Estonian Subject Thesaurus. It takes Kratt approximately 1 minute to subject index a book, outperforming humans 10-15 times. Although the resulting keywords were not considered satisfactory by the cataloguers, the ratings of a small sample of regular library users showed more promise. We also argue that the results can be enhanced by including a bigger corpus for training the model and applying more careful preprocessing techniques.

    he Estonian National Museum was founded in Tartu in 1909 on the initiative and with the support of the nation – with the task to protect and develop the history and culture of Estonia.

Also considered essential was gathering and looking after artefacts contributing to better understanding of cultural development, archaeological findings, old coins, books, manuscripts and historical records.
