ASTM chooses services from Scope eKnowledge Center

ASTM International, one of the largest voluntary standards developers worldwide, has picked Scope eKnowledge Center to provide enhanced smart content services and MARC cataloguing for its content.

As part of an earlier contract, Scope has already developed a domain-specific, multi-level taxonomy for the content within ASTM’s Standards and Engineering Digital Library (SEDL). Scope has also developed facets with a taxonomic structure to enable robust cross domain search, as well as created an expanded list of keywords to be mapped to the taxonomy and facets.

ASTM has expanded its partnership with Scope to broaden these 'smart content' services to include a Portuguese language version of the taxonomy, facets and keywords to enhance the discoverability of its content by its Brazilian end users. Scope will also catalogue standards, e-books and journal issues published by ASTM based on MARC21 standards.
