The technological interoperability of digital libraries must be rethought in order to adapt to new uses and networks. Informative digital environments aimed at responding to heritage, cultural, scientific or commercial demands have taken over the global cyberspace and have redesigned the techno-informative landscape of the Web. However, while the technological models demonstrate their effectiveness and explain to a large extent the creation of digital libraries, archives and deposits, the subjacent concept of uses continues to cause debate.
The information technologies used by heterogeneous digital libraries enable a technical interoperability of content. This is not enough to allow the adhesion of a public connected to very different information profiles and techniques. This book explores the avenues of a user-orientated interoperability where the questions of consultation interfaces and content description processes are studied.
- Discusses Metadata as a resource for linking
- Provides a practical approach
- A valuable resource for anyone involved in digital library developments and digital collections and services
A Study in Scarlet
by Arthur Conan Doyle
The Penguin English Library edition
When Dr John Watson takes rooms in Baker Street with amateur detective Sherlock Holmes, he has no idea that he is about to enter a shadowy world of criminality and violence. Accompanying Holmes to an ill-omened house in south London, Watson is startled to find a dead man whose face is contorted in a rictus of horror. There is no mark of violence on the body yet a single word is written on the wall in blood. Dr Watson is as baffled as the police, but Holmes’s brilliant analytical skills soon uncover a trail of murder, revenge and lost love . . .

eBooked! Integrating Free Online Book Sites into Your Library Collection
by H. Anthony Bandy
Online book sites such as the Google Books project, the Open Library, HathiTrust, and others are transforming our thoughts on just what a library is and does, and expanding the possibilities of what a library can be. Library staff need to be knowledgeable about these sites, but unfortunately many libraries— particularly those in the public arena—do not have the budget or staff time to learn about these sites and integrate them into their library services. eBooked! Integrating Free Online Book Sites into Your Library Collection fills this pressing need.
This book examines four of the largest and most popular free, online book sites. Each is discussed in detail in its own chapter, profiling the service in question, identifying its origins and organization and presenting specific, concrete details that describe how to make effective use its available resources. Screenshots, applicable library scenarios, and sample questions that readers can use to quiz themselves are included. The end of each chapter contains a helpful summary that recaps the main points. Other helpful sites are discussed as well.
Take Your Library Workshops Online!
by Anne Grant, Diana Finkle
Library professionals teach every day in the sense that they show patrons where to find books or how to use computers. Increasingly, however, library users just don’t have the time to attend face-to-face workshops in advance of needs that they may have. They want to know the answer to their questions when THEY need it, not when YOU teach it.
Take Your Library Workshops Online! will help you move valuable “teachable moments” from the physical library or classroom to virtual spaces. It features real-life examples of how to:
- create online synchronous sessions,
- brief tutorials, and
- pointed screen captures.
Learning in the online environment can happen in a two-minute video or in a creative meme-like screen capture and can cover topics from logging in to a database to evaluating sources. Creating these learning objects can take from less than one day up to a week depending on the time you have to devote to it and the level of detail required.
