Digital libraries: an overview

Candy Schwartz
2000 The journal of academic librarianship  
An overview of the basic components of a digital library looks at the challenges and the potentials. Candy Schwartz is Professor at the Graduate  ...  Digital libraries are complex systems that stretch institutional resources and capabilities, but also offer unparalleled opportunities for new and improved user services.  ...  Digital libraries frequently employ one of the prevailing standards for managing search-these include the Z39.50, structured query language (SQL), and tools developed for Web search engine applications  ...

Atif Latif, Ansgar Scherp, Klaus Tochtermann
2015 Künstliche Intelligenz  
The remainder of the paper is structured as follows: In Section 2, we present the success stories and explain how these studies are related to digital libraries and what are their contributions.  ...  Interestingly, Linked Data guidelines [1] can help digital libraries to get rid of data silos by publishing their dataset as structured data; and they can bring a lot of value to the libraries.  ...

User Navigation in Large-Scale Distributed Digital Libraries: The Case of the Digital Public Library of America

Krystyna K. Matusiak
2017 Journal of Web Librarianship  
Despite a great selection of digital resources, the awareness of standalone digital libraries (DLs) and their adoption for educational and personal use has been limited (Liu and Luo 2011; Matusiak 2012  ...  CONCLUSION Large-scale digital libraries address the challenge of resource discovery in the DL environment, but pose new challenges for user navigation through the aggregated platforms.  ...

Use of multiple digital libraries

Ann Blandford, Hanna Stelmaszewska, Nick Bryan-Kinns
2001 Proceedings of the first ACM/IEEE-CS joint conference on Digital libraries - JCDL '01  
The aim of the work reported here was to better understand the usability issues raised when digital libraries are used in a natural setting.  ...  The method used was a protocol analysis of users working on a task of their own choosing to retrieve documents from publicly available digital libraries.  ...  We are grateful to the anonymous participants who took part in this study, and to George Buchanan for comments on a draft of this paper.  ...

Potential and Challenges of Subject Access in Libraries Today on the Example of Swedish Libraries

Koraljka Golub
2016 The international information & library review  
Special thanks to Miriam Nauri of the Swedish National Library, for an interview on subject access practice in the Swedish Union Catalog  ...  Acknowledgements Many thanks to Madeleine Lundman, a Master-level student in Library and Information Science at Linnaeus University, who helped collect the data on Swedish public libraries.  ...  Other libraries in many cases use the term "Subject" but do not state what kind of KOS it is; in academic libraries change as new documents are added to the collection; unstable class names and relationships  ...

Interacting with information resources: digital libraries for education

Ann Blandford
2006 International Journal of Learning Technology  
Effective strategies for deploying digital libraries will retain the strengths of traditional libraries while exploiting new possibilities offered by the digital medium.  ...  We consider the various roles traditional libraries play and how they are being transformed into digital information repositories.  ...  I am grateful for stimulating discussions with Anne Adams, Simon Attfield, George Buchanan, Hanna Stelmaszewska and Claire Warwick on the topics covered in this paper.  ...

Analytical usability evaluation for digital libraries

Ann Blandford, Suzette Keith, Iain Connell, Helen Edwards
2004 Proceedings of the 2004 joint ACM/IEEE conference on Digital libraries - JCDL '04  
One key challenge is to understand users' difficulties in working with information and particularly with digital libraries (DLs), and to equip developers with ways of thinking about users and their needs  ...  On the other side, there is no unique view of the development process for digital libraries. Bates [4] discusses the complexities of DL development in terms of a "cascade" of interactions.  ...  In this case, details such as how users formulate queries and react to search results become important.  ...

Contextualizing the information space in federated digital libraries

M. P. Papazoglou, J. Hoppenbrouwers
1999 SIGMOD record  
Suitable abstraction mechanisms are required to construct meaningful and scalable document clusters, forming a cross-digital library information space for browsing and semantic searching.  ...  Rapid growth in the volume of documents, their diversity, and terminological variations render federated digital libraries increasingly di cult to manage.  ...  Querying that structure of document data can subsequently be accomplished using query languages for the Web in the database style 2 .  ...

Digital Libraries in Academia: Challenges and Changes [chapter]

Anne Adams, Ann Blandford
2002 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Although web accessible digital libraries (DLs) have greatly increased potential information accessibility within academia, the use of these resources varies widely across disciplines.  ...  This study, within contrasting departments (Humanities, Computing and Business) of a London university, reviews the social and organisational impacts of DLs across these disciplines.  ...  There is a need within this context to increase the awareness of digital resources available and their potential within specific academic contexts and disciplines [9] .  ...

Spaces of Information Modeling, Action, and Decision Making

Guy De Tré, Wouter Van Acker
2012 Library Trends  
Almost a century ago, people like Paul Otlet were already fully aware of this need and tried to develop ways of making human knowledge more accessible using the resources and technology available at that  ...  Nowadays, tremendous information sources are preserved, ranging from those of a traditional nature like libraries and museums to new formats like electronic databases and the World Wide Web.  ...  In the case of structured data, given facts are typically represented by character strings or numbers and structured in record types, tables, or class structures.  ...
