The Library of Congress and the New York Public Library have been developing an open source gazetteer platform to power geographic search across their bibliographic collections. This gazetteer and concordance pulls together various sources of contemporary and historical geographic information - including OSM - and makes them available for easy management by Library staff and public volunteers alike. This session will discuss the challenges of conflating OpenStreetMap data with other data sources, as well as provide geographic text search at scale.
