New import client ‘YGOR’

The North Rhine-Westphalian Library Service Centre (hbz) developed a new import client: YGOR. YGOR is a multilingual web client which supports the upload of KBART files to GOKb. With its help journal titles are automatically compared to the title data of the German Union Catalogue of Serials (ZDB) and enriched with the ZDB-ID, an identifier that is utilized by all participating information systems in Germany and Austria, thereby disambiguating the journal titles. The client no longer relies on OpenRefine but rather uses the cross referencing API of GOKb. The prototype is hosted at https://gokbt.gbv.de/ygor/. A user account for the ingest of data into GOKb is required.
