  • The Global ETD Search service is a free service for researchers to find electronic theses and dissertations. This service is provided by the Networked Digital Library of Theses and Dissertations.
    Our metadata is collected from universities around the world. If you manage a university/consortium/country archive and want to be added, details can be found on the NDLTD website.

Building a cooperative digital libary with open source software

Babini, Dominique 05 1900 (has links)
Even though Latin America is one of the developing regions with excellent regional cooperative bibliographic databases, which is mainly due to the common use of Spanish and Portuguese in countries of the region, access to the printed documents mentioned in the bibliographies is a privilege for a very few. Very slowly Internet is being introduced as a regular service for students, professors and researchers working in Latin American academic institutions, as well as being introduced as a platform for e-publishing and offering digital library services to users. In this context of growing e-publishing and digital libraries initiatives to provide open access to research results, CLACSO (an academic network gathering 173 social science research institutions from 21 countries of Latin America and the Caribbean) decided to build a cooperative digital library with open source Greenstone software to facilitate integrated access to full-text books, articles, papers and working documents of its member institutes.

The NSF National Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics Education Digital Library (NSDL) Program: New Projects and a Progress Report

Zia, Lee L. 11 1900 (has links)
Digital Library for Earth Science Education, DLESE / The National Science Foundation's (NSF) National Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics Education Digital Library (NSDL) program comprises a set of projects engaged in a collective effort to build a national digital library of high quality science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) educational materials for students and teachers at all levels, in both formal and informal settings. By providing broad access to a rich, reliable, and authoritative collection of interactive learning and teaching resources and associated services in a digital environment, the NSDL will encourage and sustain continual improvements in the quality of STEM education for all students, and serve as a resource for lifelong learning. Though the program is relatively new, its vision and operational framework have been developed over a number of years through various workshops and planning meetings. The NSDL program held its first formal funding cycle during fiscal year 2000, accepting proposals in four tracks: Core Integration System, Collections, Services, and Targeted Research. Twenty-nine awards were made across these tracks in September 2000.

The Design and Evaluation of Interactivities in a Digital Library

Budhu, Muniram, Coleman, Anita Sundaram 11 1900 (has links)
The US National Science Foundation has established a program to create a National Science, Mathematics, Engineering and Technology Education Digital Library (NSDL). One of the subsidiary NSDL libraries under development is the National Civil Engineering Educational Resources Library (NCERL). The first phase of NCERL is the creation and collection of digital resources in three areas of civil engineeringâ geotechnical (soil), rock, and water engineering (GROW). The concept of interactivities guides the design, development, and evaluation efforts of the GROW digital collection. This article describes the salient features of GROW, defines and discusses interactivities as an emerging, integral part of teaching and learning in civil engineering education. Interactivities take place at three distinct levels: the information resource, the collection, and the context. Very simply, the concept of interactivities can be defined as the emphasis on structured representations of interactive multimedia resources. Additionally, resources are designed with rich learning tasks and organized in pedagogical collections supplemented with contextual information. Preliminary evaluation of GROW-NCERL using interactivities is briefly described.

Integrated Public-Access Computer Systems: The Heart of the Electronic University

Bailey, Charles W. January 1989 (has links)
It has often been said that the library is the heart of the university. As the central repository of recorded knowledge on campus, the library is an essential resource for scholarly activity, and one measure of the greatness of a university is its library's collections. As electronic publishing expands and universities become computer-intensive organizations, what will the academic library's role be in this dynamic, technology-driven environment? Will it still be the heart of the university? This paper examines the medium-term future (10-15 years) of electronic publishing, the emerging "electronic university," and integrated public-access computer systems. Its central theme is that the academic library can synergetically combine traditional collections and services with new computer-based information resources and services to create a unified information system. By employing this strategy, it can continue to be the heart of the evolving electronic university.

Write While You Search: Ambient Searching of a Digital Library in the Context of Writing

Gruzd, Anatoliy A, Twidale, Michael B January 2006 (has links)
We consider ideas for a tighter integration of searching a digital library while writing a paper. A prototype system based on web services is described which allows us to explore the design space of ambient search tools to support and inspire the writing process.

Digital Libraries

Arms, William Y. 01 1900 (has links)
This is an online version of the book Digital Libraries published by the MIT Press in January 2000. The text of the book is copyrighted by the MIT Press (please see copyright notice and details at end of this abstract). Here is an excerpt from the book's Preface by the author, William Arms, dated June 2005: This online edition of Digital Libraries is an updated version of the book of the same name published by the M.I.T. Press in January 2000. I am extremely grateful to the press for giving me permission to place it online even while the book is still in print. The field of Digital Libraries is moving rapidly. Most of this book was written in 1998 and many sections are now seriously out of date. In particular: * In the few years since the book was written, there have been some major developments. Important topics that need to be updated or included for the first time include the emergence of XML, the dominance of Google, reference linking, the Internet Archive, the Open Archives Initiative, and many more. * Numerous details need to be brought up to date. * A few projects have come to an end and a few topics have proved to be less important than expected. They need to be deleted or give less emphasis. * The book does not have a bibliography, because, only a few years ago, nobody had confidence in the longevity of URLs. Now it is clear that many online collections are managed for the long term and can be cited with confidence. * Our understanding has developed. In some aspects, uncertainties have been resolved; in others the complexities seem to have grown. There is less need to be an advocate for digital libraries. Despite being out of date in these ways, the major themes and much of the material remains valuable. In particular, the importance of understanding the human and social context while carrying out technical work remains the heart of all work in digital libraries."
