Some "Content Enrichment" Ideas are 20 Years Delayed

I recommend that everyone interested in "content enrichment" read this 2007 article.

It is presented in a clear, easy to read manner with references.  It documents that library staff are still discussing "content enrichment" ideas that are actually 20 years delayed.

The author believed it was necessary for libraries to "heed catalog users' longtime demands for improvements to the searching experience."
