With their versatility, accessibility, and economy, these focused collections of everything digital are fast becoming the "banks" in which the world's wealth of information is stored. How to Build a Digital Library is the only book that offers all the knowledge and tools needed to construct and maintain a digital library-no matter how large or small. Two internationally recognized experts provide a fully developed, step-by-step method, as well as the software that makes it all possible. How to Build a Digital Library is the perfectly self-contained resource for individuals, agencies, and institutions wishing to put this powerful tool to work in their burgeoning information treasuries. * Sketches the history of libraries-both traditional and digital-and their impact on present practices and future directions * Offers in-depth coverage of today's practical standards used to represent and store information digitally * Uses Greenstone, freely accessible open-source software-available with interfaces in the world's major languages (including Spanish, Chinese, and Arabic) * Written for both technical and non-technical audiences * Web-enhanced with software documentation, color illustrations, full-text index, source code, and more."@en ;
