Abstract:

We describe a domain-specific knowledge base aimed at sup- porting the extraction of bibliographic references in the domain of Clas- sics. In particular, we deal with references to canonical works of the Greek and Latin literature by providing a model that represents key as- pects of this domain such as names and abbreviations of authors, the canonical structure of classical works, and links to related web resources. Finally, we show how the availability of linked data in the emerging Graph of Ancient World Data has helped bootstrapping the creation of our knowledge base.
