A historian's guide to computing by Daniel I Greenstein( Book )
12 editions published between 1994 and 2000 in English and held by 516 libraries worldwide
"This comprehensive guide is written for historians and other scholars with no prior expertise in the use of computers who need to know what kind of problems computers can solve. Dr Greenstein offers advice on how to exploit the computer and avoid potential pitfalls in day-to-day tasks, from bibliographic management to the use of electronic mail, and on-line library catalogues. The three central chapters on research methods examine databases and information management; numbers and measurement (including statistics, and graphical and tabular display); and document preparation and textual analysis. The final chapter offers an eight-point guide to project management which will help the user to harness the computer in a cost-effective, efficient, and productive manner for projects of any size and complexity." "Throughout the book methodological and technical discussion is presented in straightforward and precise language, augmented by comprehensible diagrams, with reference to real historical problems and data sets. The book is not tied to specific software or solutions, but offers numerous signposts for the reader in search of more detailed or more narrowly defined information."--Jacket

Digital libraries, once project based and largely autonomous efforts, are maturing. As individual programs have grown, each has developed its own personality, reflecting the circumstances of its creation and environment, and its leadership.

Shared Challenges and in a Networked Cultural Space by Daniel I Greenstein( Book )
1 edition published in 2001 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
This paper supplements a previous paper that reported on a tour of leading U.S. research libraries that are investing significantly in and have significant experience with innovative online collections and services. The previous paper reported the following five key challenges: architectural and technical; standards and best practices; strategies for developing sustainable and scaleable digital collections; getting good information about users' information seeking behaviors and needs; and securing long-term access to digital information. The current paper supplements that report with observations about challenges confronting cultural heritage organizations, I.E., libraries, museums, and archives. These challenges are discussed under the following headings: (1) strategic planning, including business planning frameworks, benchmarks of institutional readiness, risk assessment tools, and cost-benefit evaluation of different organizational forms; (2) provision of key infrastructure, including digitization services, distribution services, and alerting services and open software libraries; (3) provision of professional development opportunities, including thinking in new ways about recruitment and professional qualification, ensuring staff are afforded appropriate training opportunities, and providing guidance in change management; and (4) re-assessment and review of the cultural heritage library's mission and values, including balancing not-for-profit service goals, transcending the current role, and determining whether there is room in a networked space for the cultural heritage sector as a whole.

The Digital Library: A Biography. Strategies and Tools for the Digital Library by Daniel I Greenstein( Book )
1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
This report draws on the results of a survey and case studies of Digital Library Federation (dlf) members (Council on Library and Information Resources - clir). The survey was intended to document how dlf member libraries are focusing their digital library programs: how and under what circumstances their programs were initiated; the influences that shaped their development; the programs current organization and funding; and the challenges they anticipate. The study began with a survey questionnaire circulated to the academic libraries that were members of the dlf in January 2001; 21 institutions responded. Extensive interviews were conducted with key staff members at six dlf member libraries: the California Digital Library (cdl), Harvard University, Indiana University, New York University (nyu), the University of Michigan, and the University of Virginia. The report is divided into two main sections. Contents of the first section include: Introduction; Aspiration and the "Skunk Works": The Young Digital Library (origins, funding, and characteristics); Rolling Projects into Programs: The Maturing Digital Library (characteristics, technical and organizational integration, and marketing and promotion); and From Integration to Interdependency: The Adult Digital Library (digital libraries as infrastructure, move toward permanent funding, continued experimentation, deep interdependency, and competition within the university). Case studies of the six universities are reproduced in the second section. Appendixes include: survey respondents and principal preliminary results from the survey data. (Contains 19 references.)

This is version 1 of the document, which is a work in progress. It "represents a manual of AHDS specific policies, standards and practices. It collates policies, standards and practices which although developed and applied by the AHDS to address issues relevant to its own mission and collections, reflect in microcosm issues which are increasingly also being confronted by a much wider community of information professionals responsible for the management, preservation and use of other digital resources. As such it will have wider interest and relevance."--Purpose and Audience for this Publication
