Enabling access in digital libraries : a report on a workshop on access management by Caroline R Arms( Book )
11 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 50 libraries worldwide
On April 6, 1998, the Digital Library Federation (dlf) and the National Science Foundation (nsf) sponsored a one-day workshop on ways to improve systems of managing access to digital information. The workshop was convened to provide input from research libraries with a focus on requirements for access management systems that can be designed and deployed in today's technical, legal, and economic environment. Participants identified these five key properties for the design and adoption of systems that enable access for users while respecting the rights and interests of authors and publishers: (1) simplicity; (2) privacy; (3) good faith; (4) trusted intermediaries; and (5) reasonable terms. Participants also recommended research and project evaluation in two key areas: system usability and economic models. Although the conclusions reached at this workshop relate specifically to the problems of managing access to the cultural record in digital form for research and teaching purposes, they apply to other realms as well, including business, medicine, insurance, credit card transactions, and logfiles from Web browsers, all of which involve more sensitive information. This report describes the opening statements and invited presentations of the workshop, and summarizes the workshop discussions under three thematic headings: technical assumptions, issues affecting user acceptance, and points that address specific questions posed. Unanticipated issues that do not fit these categories are also described. Appendices list participants, suggested readings, and definitions, and provide an update on related legislative activity.

Some Observations on Metadata and Digital Libraries by Caroline R Arms( Book )
2 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 2 libraries worldwide
This paper describes experiences in gathering together metadata from heterogeneous sources for the American Memory project of the Library of Congress, particularly for the collections digitized and cataloged at other institutions. It also reflects on several initiatives to develop rich structured metadata schemes for specific domains and to find simple approaches to support resource discovery across domains. Trends and commonalities are identified, and influences among metadata schemes are explored. Highlights include: differences in digital libraries; objectives for metadata and expectations of users; community-specific metadata models and schemas; metadata for cross-domain discovery; types, formats, and genres of digital content; metadata for search and metadata for display; how users search in digital libraries; searching by topic, originator, date range, place, or type; and improved tools to support access to resources in digital libraries. A table compares search buckets for metadata for the American Memory and Alexandria Digital Library projects. (Contains 34 notes.) (Mes)

The Application of Clustering Techniques to Citation Data. ResearchReports Series B No. 6 by William Y Arms( Book )
1 edition published in 1977 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
This report describes research carried out as part of the Design of Information Systems in the Social Sciences (disiss) project. Cluster analysis techniques were applied to a machine readable file of bibliographic data in the form of cited journal titles in order to identify groupings which could be used to structure bibliographic files. Practical applications of the data obtained from clusters of journal title citations were to include the planning patterns of journal coverage for secondary services, ascertaining information on the structure of the primary literature of a discipline, and the provision of data to help validate classification schemes and thesauri. The analyses were carried out on a file of over 60,000 citations taken from social science journals, and a special cluster analysis was made of citations taken from criminology source journals at three different time intervals. Included here are a review of clustering techniques applicable to bibliographic data, a detailed discussion of the results, and an evaluation of the practical value of the technique. It was concluded that the use of cluster analysis is probably not a very practical aid to the design of secondary services in the social sciences, though the techniques nevertheless have important bibliographic applications elsewhere. A bibliography is appended. (Author/JD)
