Digital Libraries and Information Access Book Excerpt:

An authoritative and truly global exploration of current research in digital libraries. Internationally-renowned academics discuss what has been achieved with digital libraries and what we can expect in the future through the prism of research. The increasing number of digital libraries in all sectors and the pressure of ever demanding and diverse user needs has encouraged development of user-centred interfaces, intelligent search and retrieval capabilities, effective metadata description and contents organization. In addition to the two editors who are renowned for their works in digital library research, this collection brings together established international names in the field to analyse these developments in relation to users and information access and the future trends and challenges that practitioners will face. Readership: LIS students, academics and researchers interested in digital libraries and access and those developing, managing or just starting out with digital libraries

Information Access In Digital Libraries Book Excerpt:

Library and Information Centres are continuing to provide information services in a changing environment. The advent of Information and communication Technologies has enabled libraries not only to improve the traditional library services but also to devise new methods of information services using latest technological tools. The information seeking behavior of the users has been changed and they demand latest information from any source through any method. Hence the application of latest ICT can be able to suffice the current information needs of the information stakeholders. Most of the information sources are being published in digital formats. The emergence of digital libraries has completely changed the information dissemination scenario. Users are now can be able to have access to any library for any information they seek. It is only the digital libraries which can develop such a system of information dissemination. But access to information is a problem. Such problems can be solved if digital libraries are developed in right platform. In order to discuss those emerging problems the Editors invited the contributors some useful papers. Hence, the book deals with some of the emerging topics on digital libraries which will be useful for the library and information professionals.

Digital Library and Information Developments Book Excerpt:

The information technology explosion and its applications in every aspect of life have changed the entire scenario of the present world. The IT revolution and information explosion has led to the emergence of electronic information era. Advanced in internet technologies have made it seemingly possible and easy to create digital collections, repositories, archives and libraries. However, supporting diverse information usages that facilitate interaction beyond searching and browsing is in the early stages. Interactive digital libraries and digital archives are still evolving. The digital preservation techniques have brought revolutionary changes in the organization and management of libraries and archives. Digital Library improves the organizational efficiencies by leveraging data processing, data storage and data communication technologies. Existing network facilities can be utilized to achieve great savings in labour costs and the reduction of paper storage and handling facilities. This book has written for use in Library and Information Science professionals and students. It will be useful of all levels of Library and Information Science Professionals and Students. It will also helpful for those preparing for organizing Digital Library in their own premises. This book aims to delineate for the readers the principles, methods and techniques which are involved in the digital library management and information development.

Universal Access in Digital Libraries Book Excerpt:

Digital libraries are concerned with the creation and management of information sources, the movement of information across global networks and the effective use of this information by a wide range of users. A digital library is a vast collection of obj ects that are of multimedia nature, e.g., text, video, images, and audio. Users wishing to access the digital library objects may possess varying capabilities, preferences, domain expertise, and may use different information appliances. With the phenomenal growth of the Internet, the number of different information appliances will, if not already, increase substantially in the near future. Facilitating access to complex multimedia digital library obj ects that suits to the users' requirements is known as universal access. The main objective of this thesis is to present our research work in the area of Universal Access within digital library environment. In this thesis, we will first present the current and future trend in information appliances, followed by discussion on the scope of our work. We propose an object manifestation approach in which digital library objects automatically manifest themselves to cater to the users' capabilities and characteristics. We provide a formal framework, based on Petri nets, to represent the various components of the digital library objects, their modality and fidelity and the playback synchronization relationships among them. We develop methodologies for object delivery without any deadtime under network delays. We have implemented a working system prototype to realize our approach.

This book examines the ethical issues and dilemmas that arise in digital libraries, and the codes of conduct, professional guidelines and ethics resources used in resolving them. The book begins with an overview of classical and applied ethics, then reviews the codes of conduct of professional information societies (libraries, archivists, information technology). The book then examines issues and situations that arise in digitization and digital library management, and explores the ways established information ethics can be applied and adapted to these cases. Looks at ethics relating to digitization, digital libraries and preservation Includes decision making guides for various situations that arise in digital libraries, with questions for readers to ask themselves when faced with an ethical dilemma Takes the professional guidelines and codes of conduct for librarians, archivists and information workers as stated in the codes of ethics for various professional societies and applies these to the world of digital libraries

Semantic Digital Libraries Book Excerpt:

Libraries have always been an inspiration for the standards and technologies developed by semantic web activities. However, except for the Dublin Core specification, semantic web and social networking technologies have not been widely adopted and further developed by major digital library initiatives and projects. Yet semantic technologies offer a new level of flexibility, interoperability, and relationships for digital repositories. Kruk and McDaniel present semantic web-related aspects of current digital library activities, and introduce their functionality; they show examples ranging from general architectural descriptions to detailed usages of specific ontologies, and thus stimulate the awareness of researchers, engineers, and potential users of those technologies. Their presentation is completed by chapters on existing prototype systems such as JeromeDL, BRICKS, and Greenstone, as well as a look into the possible future of semantic digital libraries. This book is aimed at researchers and graduate students in areas like digital libraries, the semantic web, social networks, and information retrieval. This audience will benefit from detailed descriptions of both today’s possibilities and also the shortcomings of applying semantic web technologies to large digital repositories of often unstructured data.
