How to Build a Digital Library is the only book that offers all the knowledge and tools needed to construct and maintain a digital library, regardless of the size or purpose. It is the perfectly self-contained resource for individuals, agencies, and institutions wishing to put this powerful tool to work in their burgeoning information treasuries. The Second Edition reflects new developments in the field as well as in the Greenstone Digital Library open source software. In Part I, the authors have added an entire new chapter on user groups, user support, collaborative browsing, user contributions, and so on. There is also new material on content-based queries, map-based queries, cross-media queries. There is an increased emphasis placed on multimedia by adding a qdigitizingq section to each major media type. A new chapter has also been added on qinternationalization, q which will address Unicode standards, multi-language interfaces and collections, and issues with non-European languages (Chinese, Hindi, etc.). Part II, the software tools section, has been completely rewritten to reflect the new developments in Greenstone Digital Library Software, an internationally popular open source software tool with a comprehensive graphical facility for creating and maintaining digital libraries. As with the First Edition, a web site, implemented as a digital library, will accompany the book and provide access to color versions of all figures, two online appendices, a full-text sentence-level index, and an automatically generated glossary of acronyms and their definitions. In addition, demonstration digital library collections will be included to demonstrate particular points in the book. to access the online content please visit, http://www.greenstone.org/howto *Outlines the history of libraries-- both traditional and digital-- and their impact on present practices and future directions. *Written for both technical and non-technical audiences and covers the entire spectrum of media, including text, images, audio, video, and related XML standards. *Web-enhanced with software documentation, color illustrations, full-text index, source code, and more.... type Sharpness Software Thumbnail length White balance YCbCr positioning sRGB YCbCr 0.533203125 JPEG (old-style) High 2003:02:17 20:39:36 Normal 2003:02:17 20:39:36 inf 2, 048 A— 1, 536 0220 +1 Manual Program ...
