by G. G. Chowdhury

MembersReviewsPopularityAverage ratingConversations
43None494,167 (3)None
Recent developments in ICT, especially the web, have led to the creation of a growing number of digital library projects in the UK, USA and elsewhere. This new phenomenon is designed to bring a paradigm shift in the ways we create, access and use information. The design and development of digital libraries depend on computer, communication and other technical skills, and the dream of successful digital libraries leading to a global digital environment can only be fulfilled when sufficient practitioners have the skills to design, build and manage them. This book presents a holistic view of the new digital library scene. Supported by a wealth of international examples, it is an essential guide to good digital practice and techniques. The authors have experience both in teaching courses on digital libraries and in actively researching them, and the text is based on evidence provided by models of major digital library research projects around the globe. Key topics include: digital libraries: definition and characteristics features of some digital libraries digital library design digital library research collection management digitization information organization information access and user interface information retrieval in digital libraries digital archiving and preservation digital library services social, economic and legal issues digital library evaluation digital libraries and the information profession trends in digital library research and development. Readership: This invaluable textbook offers an all-round view of digital libraries and is a core text for students of digital librarianship and related courses at departments of information science and computer science. It is also essential reading for practitioners and researchers who need to get a good grasp of issues and developments in the field.… (more)
