High Performance Interoperable Digital Libraries in the Open Archives Initiative
The scope of this project is high performance mechanisms for interoperable distributed digital repositories. We apply Open Archives Initiative ideas and concepts to the storage and retrieval of electronic theses and ...
Use and Usability in a Digital Library Search System
Digital libraries must reach out to users from all walks of life, serving information needs at all levels. To do this, they must attain high standards of usability over an extremely broad audience. This paper details the ...
An Architecture for Multischeming in Digital Libraries
(Department of Computer Science, Virginia Polytechnic Institute & State University, 2003), TR-03-25
In this paper we discuss the problem of handling many classification schemes within the context of a single digital library concurrently, which we term multischeming. We discuss how to represent which category describes ...
Rapid Modeling, Prototyping, and Generation of Digital Libraries- a Theory-Based Approach
(Department of Computer Science, Virginia Polytechnic Institute & State University, 2003), TR-03-16
Despite some development in the area of DL architectures and systems, there is still little support for the complete life cycle of DL development, including requirements gathering, conceptual modeling, rapid prototyping, ...
Automated Arabic Text Classification with P-Stemmer, Machine Learning, and a Tailored News Article Taxonomy
(Department of Computer Science, Virginia Polytechnic Institute & State University, 2015-01-22), TR-15-01
Arabic news articles in electronic collections are difficult to work with. Browsing by category is rarely supported. While helpful machine learning methods have been applied successfully to similar situations for English ...
Evaluation in Information Retrieval
This module addresses the methods used to evaluate an Information Retrieval system. We focus on evaluating a system using relevance and apply the knowledge by using TREC_EVAL.
CITIDEL Collection Building
(Department of Computer Science, Virginia Polytechnic Institute & State University, 2003), TR-03-14
The aim of this study is to facilitate the goals of the Computing and Information Technology Interactive Digital Educational Library (CITIDEL) by increasing the number of collections available to it. This study will help ...
This module covers use of the R language for performing the statistical analysis needed for several information retrieval (IR) techniques. The R language is extremely extensive and a powerful tool. R will not be covered ...
Indexing and Searching
This module covers the general principles of information retrieval (IR) models, indexing methods, and the working of search engines applicable to digital libraries.
This module addresses the basic concepts of the Lemur platform that is specifically designed to facilitate research in Language Modeling and information retrieval.
