Digital Libraries, Conceptual Knowledge Systems, and the Nebula Interface [article]

Robert E. Kent, C. Mic Bowman
2011 arXiv   pre-print
This not only offers evidence to support the assertion that a digital library is a bounded collection of incommensurate information sources in a logical space, but also sheds light on techniques for collaboration  ...  Concept Analysis provides a principled approach to effective management of wide area information systems, such as the Nebula File System and Interface.  ...  Introduction In their lead-off paper for last year's Digital Library' 94 conference [8] , Francis Miksa and Philip Doty ask the question "Why should a digital library be called a 'library' ?"  ...

Metadata type system

Yin Qu, Andruid Kerne, Nic Lupfer, Rhema Linder, Ajit Jain
2014 Proceedings of the 2014 ACM SIGCHI symposium on Engineering interactive computing systems - EICS '14  
To address these issues, we develop a metadata type system as the basis for building exploratory browsing interfaces that maintain context.  ...  To maintain context, exploratory browsing interfaces must present multiple web pages at once. Design of exploratory browsing interfaces must address the limits of display and human working memory.  ...  A two way ANOVA shows students spent significantly less time directly browsing digital library web pages when using the MICE interface: .83 minutes compared to 16.43 minutes for the control (p < .001).  ...

A framework for designing and implementing the user interface of a geographic digital library

Juliano Lopes de Oliveira, Marcos André Gonçalves, Claudia Bauzer Medeiros
1999 International Journal on Digital Libraries  
We present a solution to this problem, based on a framework that allows the design and construction of customizable user interfaces for applications based on Geographic Digital Libraries (GDL).  ...  This framework relies on two main concepts: a geographic user interface architecture and a geographic digital library model.  ...  The authors thank the anonymous reviewers for their comments.  ...
