Adoption of Open Source Digital Library Software Packages: A Survey

Jose, Sanjo January 2007 (has links)
Open source digital library packages are gaining popularity nowadays. To build a digital library under economical conditions open source software is preferable. This paper tries to identify the extent of adoption of open source digital library software packages in various organizations through an online survey. It lays down the findings from the survey.

Management of the Digital Library: New Techniques for a New Technology

Nicholson, Scott January 1995 (has links)
The digital library is a user-based library service that seamlessly connects users to the information they need electronically, regardless of source. The new technologies and higher costs cause management new difficulties in five areas: planning, organizing, staffing, directing, and controlling. The purpose of this report is to collect these problems from the literature and offer solutions when possible. The three largest problems facing the manager of digital library services are cost recovery, copyright issues, and training. Mangers must determine a way to recover the constant costs incurred by the technologies used to run the digital library through increased funding or charging users. Until copyright issues are dealt with, no copywritten material can be placed in a digital library. Constant training requires a commitment of money and time, yet is the most important change a manager can make to guarantee the success of the digital library. These issues must not be avoided, and require managers to re-think traditional management strategies. In order to handle these and other problems and successfully manage a digital library, managers require new tools for a new technology.

A Phenomenological Study of an Emergent National Digital Library, Part II: The Narratives of Development

Dalbello, Marija 10 1900 (has links)
Citation for the accompanying article: Dalbello, Marija. (2005). "A Phenomenological Study of an Emergent National Digital Library, Part I: Theory and Methodological Framework," The Library Quarterly 75 (4), pp. 391-420. / This article discusses digital library development at the Library of Congress focusing on institutional processes associated with technological innovation in the library context and key transformative event, the completion of the National Digital Library Program (NDLP) (1995-2000). Interviews with seven key participants of the program conducted in 2002 at the Library of Congress (from policy-makers to digital library developers) are interpreted here in terms of loci of control (external/internal) shaping the process of innovation and its institutionalization â the coercive and normative pressures of society, and the professional field of librarianship. The perceptions of individuals are synthesized into a realist narrative in which their voices are still recognizable. Their tales of development show that organizational change driven by external forces and involving individuals who crossed boundaries of organizational fields can be very successful in forcing organizational isomorphism and integration of digitization in the library processes. The accompanying article, Part I, presents theories of social change and organizational rationality, and the social construction of technology (SCOT) as well as the methodological framework for this phenomenological study.

Digital Libraries: Universal Access to Human Knowledge

Nagel, David C., Chen, Ching-chih, Gray, James N., Kahn, Robert E., Reddy, Raj 02 1900 (has links)
In Digital Libraries: Universal Access to Human Knowledge, the Committee offers its findings and recommendations for how digital libraries can be an essential resource for human learning and development. The PITAC offers four key recommendations that will make digital libraries more pervasive and usable by all citizens: *Expanded research in metadata and metadata use, scalability, interoperability, archival storage and preservation, intellectual property rights, privacy and security, and human use *Create several Federally funded large-scale digital library testbeds *Provide Federal funding to make all public Federal content persistently available in digital form on the Internet *Have the Federal government play a leadership role in evolving policy to fairly address intellectual property rights in the digital age

Personal name identification in the practices of digital repositories

Xia, Jingfeng January 2006 (has links)
This paper finds that the variations of authors' names have negatively affected the retrieval capability of digital repositories. Two possible solutions include using composite identifiers that combine author name, publication date, and author affiliation, and also asking authors to input the variants of their name, if any, at the time of depositing articles.

What's in the NSDL Metadata Repository? The Technical, Cataloging, and Evaluations Challenges. EIESC (Educational Impact and Evaluation Standing Committee) SIG presentation at the 2004 NSDL All Projects Meeting, Chicago, Illinois

Cassell, Boots, Jones, Casey, Recker, Mimi, Ridgway, Judy, Sumner, Tamara, Shreve, Gregory, Zeng, Marcia Lei, Subrahmanyam, Bhagirathi, Shin, Peter 11 1900 (has links)
At the NSDL AM 2004, the SIG titled What's in the NSDL Metadata Repository? The Technical, Cataloging, and Evaluations Challenges at the NSDL All Projects Meeting brings together technical, cataloging, and evaluation experts to identify methods to determine the breadth and depth of the metadata repository. During this session we will develop a plan to characterize the contents of the NSDL Metadata Repository in terms of subject, audience, and type. Three position papers are presented as a prelude to the plan. They include: #1: Title: Report of the NSDL Evaluations Controlled Vocabulary Project Date: 10/1/2004 Committee Members Boots Cassel cassel@acm.org Casey Jones caseyj@ucar.edu Mimi Recker mimi.recker@usu.edu Judy Ridgway Jridgway@enc.org (Working Group Chair) Tammy Sumner sumner@Colorado.EDU # 2: Title: Metadata Elements in the NSDL Metadata Repository: Results of a Preliminary Quality Analysis: Subject, Type, Audience Authors: Gregory M. Shreve, Marcia Lei Zeng, Bhagirathi Subrahmanyam # 3: Title: Towards Making the NSDL Collection More Accessible Through a Testbed Author: Peter Shin, San Diego Supercomputer Center, UCSD

Latin America and the Caribbean Social Science Virtual Libraries Network. (Open access to full-text social science publications from Latin America and the Caribbean: the case of CLACSO´s virtual libraries network)

Babini, D January 2005 (has links)
Emerging trends in academic e-publishing and e-libraries in Latin America and the Caribbean are more related to particular problems in the region -reduced number of copies printed, inter-library loans nearly nonexistent among cities and countries due to postal costs, discontinuity in library collections- than to the dynamics of the international academic editorial business. This presentation describes how CLACSO, an academic network gathering 168 social science research institutions from 21 countries in Latin America and the Caribbean, is working towards a cooperative portal for open access to full-text publications of CLACSO´s network in support of education and research.

Bioinformatics Digital Library

Ram, Shri, Kataria, Sanjay January 2005 (has links)
Digitization has revolutionized every field of our lives. Starting from the print media it has gone through the broadcast media and now a number of other storage media. The academic learning resources, though have taken lead, yet other such institutions are not lacking behind. Bioinformatics is such an area where the possibilities of digitization can be explored. The paper opens with the remarks that digital libraries are multifaceted systems. The area it has covered includes molecular biology, protein databanks, genome data, computer science and mathematics etc. The new phrase computational biology has been added for the readerâ s quest. The paper deals in some basic, technical and analytical questions relating to digitization. The application of Internet has been adjusted as the backbone of digitization. The paper also discusses the different field of bioinformatics which has been covered in the development of bioinformatics digital library at Jaypee University of Information Technology, Solan (HP).
