Thanks Karen, Rene also mentioned the BASE (thanks). They only go as far
as the third level of the DDC and in all the cases I checked, the DDC
classes were assigned automatically. Meanwhile, I have found out that
some university libraries have assigned subject metadata to the
technical reports and articles archived in their institutional
repositories, e.g., see:
None of them have all the DDC, LCC, and LCSH metadata assigned, but it
is a good start anyway. Some of them like 1400 research papers from the
Carnegie Mellon University-School of Computer Science have proper LCSHs
assigned but have been assigned the same DDC and LCC (i.e., LCC:
DDC: 510.7808), which I suppose is understandable considering the amount
of work required for their proper manual classification.

Subject: [CODE4LIB] articles using ddc
Someone asked a while back about a source of journal articles that had
been indexed using DDC. I have found such a source here:
No idea if it meets your needs, but it reminded me.
