This paper describes the CMCRC systems entered in the TAC 2010 entity linking challenge. The best performing system we describe implements the document-level entity linking system from Cucerzan (2007), with several additions that exploit global information. Our implementation of Cucerzan's method achieved a score of 74.9% in development experiments. Additional global information improves performance to 78.4%. On the TAC 2010 test data, our best system achieves a score of 84.4%, which is second in the overall rankings of submitted systems.
