Digital Libraries Book Excerpt:

The emergence of the Internet and the wide availability of affordable computing equipment have created tremendous interest in digital libraries and electronic publishing. This book is the first to provide an integrated overview of the field, including a historical perspective, the state of the art, and current research. The term "digital libraries" covers the creation and distribution of all types of information over networks, ranging from converted historical materials to kinds of information that have no analogues in the physical world. In some ways digital libraries and traditional libraries are very different, yet in other ways they are remarkably similar. People still create information that has to be organized, stored, and distributed, and they still need to find and use information that others have created. An underlying theme of this book is that no aspect of digital libraries can be understood in isolation or without attention to the needs of the people who create and use information. Although the book covers a wide range of technical, economic, social, and organizational topics, the focus is on the actual working components of a digital library.

Building a Public Digital Library Based on Full text Retrieval Book Excerpt:

"Digital libraries are expensive to create and maintain, and generally restricted to a particular corporation or group of paying subscribers. While many indexes to the World Wide Web are freely available, the quality of what is indexed is extremely uneven. The digital analog of a public library - a reliable, quality, community service - has yet to appear. This paper demonstrates the feasibility of a cost-effective collection of high quality public-domain information, freely available over the internet. One obstacle to the creation of a digital library is the difficulty of providing formal cataloguing information. Without a title, author, and subject database it seems hard to offer the searching facilities normally available in physical libraries. Full-text retrevial provides a way of approximating these services without a concomitant investment of resources. A second is the problem of finding a suitable corpus of material. Computer science research reports form the focus of our prototype implementation. These consitiute a large body of high-quality public-domain documents. Given such a corpus, a third issue becomes the question of obtaining both plain text for indexing, and page images for readability. Typesetting formats such as PostScirpt provide some of the benefits of libraries scanned from paper documents - such as page-based indexing and viewing - without the physical demands and error-prone nature of scanning and optical character recognition. However, until recently the difficulty of extracting text from PostScript seems to have encouraged indexing on plain-text abstracts or bibliographic information provided by authors. We have developed a new technique that overcomes the problem. This paper describes the architecture, the indexing, collection, and maintenance processes, and the retrieval interface, to a prototype public digital library. Keywords: Digital libraries, information retrieval, full-text retrieval, distributed databases, data compression, user interfaces."--[Page ii].
