Successes & Failures of Digital Libraries. Papers Presented at the Annual Clinic on Library Applications of Data Processing (35th, Champaign, Illinois, March 22-24, 1998).
Harum, Susan, Ed.; Twidale, Michael, Ed.
This clinic's goal was to address questions arising during the process of transition from theory and research development to deployed useful and usable (and used) digital library systems. The idea was to use the Digital Libraries Initiative (DLI) based at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and entering its final year, as a detailed case study from which to derive these questions in order to serve as a resource for future digital library activities. The focus on the DLI was complemented by external invited speakers giving a wider perspective. Following an introduction by conference co-chairs Susan Harum and Michael Twidale is the keynote address (Stephen M. Griffin), "NSF/DARPA/NASA Digital Libraries Initiative: A Program Manager's Perspective." Presentations include:"Update on the Networked Digital Library of Theses and Dissertations" (Edward A. Fox); "Processing and Access Issues for Full-Text Journals" (William H. Mischo and Timothy W. Cole); "Federated Search of Scientific Literature: A Retrospective on the Illinois Digital Library Project" (Bruce Schatz, William Mischo, Timothy Cole, Ann Bishop, Susan Harum, Eric Johnson, Laura Neumann, Hsinchun Chen, and Dorbin Ng); "From Usability to Use: Measuring Success of Testbeds in the Real World"; (Laura J. Neumann and Ann Peterson Bishop); "Semantic Issues for Digital Libraries" (Hsinchun Chen); "Technology Transfer in a Public University" (Robert Wedgeworth); "A Publisher's Perspective: More Successes than Failures" (Tim Ingoldsby); "Lessons Learned from Full-Text Journals at OCLC" (Thomas B. Hickey);"The Future of Annotation in a Digital (Paper) World" (Catherine C. Marshall); and "Give Me Documents or Give Me Death: A Millennial Meditation on Documents and Libraries (David M. Levy). Includes an index. (AEF)
