AM Half Day Tutorial 2-Introduction to Digital Libraries LIMITED

Limited Capacity seats available

This tutorial is a thorough and deep introduction to the DL field, providing a firm foundation: covering key concepts and terminology, as well as services, systems, technologies, methods, standards, projects, issues, and practices. It introduces and builds upon a firm theoretical foundation (starting with the '5S' set of intuitive aspects: Streams, Structures, Spaces, Scenarios, Societies), giving careful definitions and explanations of all the key parts of a 'minimal digital library', and expanding from that basis to cover key DL issues. Illustrations will come from a well-chosen set of case studies. Attendees will receive a copy of the Dec. 2011 (over 500 pages) combined DL book the presenter used in teaching a graduate DL course, as well as portions of the 4 books that have extended that work and should all be out before the conference, from Morgan & Claypool (Theoretical Foundations, Key Issues, Technologies, Applications) – seehttps://sites.google.com/a/morganclaypool.com/dlibrary/ ,http://www.morganclaypool.com/doi/abs/10.2200/S00434ED1V01Y201207ICR022. Complementing the coverage of '5S' will be an overview of key aspects of the DELOS Reference Model and the DL.org activities based in Europe.
