PATRON: Using a Multimedia Digital Library for Learning and Teaching in the Performing Arts.
The creation and application of a multimedia digital library to support learning and teaching in the performing arts is described. PATRON (Performing Arts Teaching Resources Online) delivers audio, video, music scores, dance notation, and theater scripts to the desktop via an innovative Web-based interface. Digital objects are linked subjectively by users in profiles with different formats and functions, for example, e-notebook, multimedia essay, and synchronized timeline. Metadata are implemented in XML and extended Dublin Core. Rights issues related to digitizing multimedia resources are noted and the watermarking of audio and video images is described in relation to rights protection. Two figures show the PATRON interface and a contextual profile. (Author/AEF)
