Opening Remarks and Historical Overview Part B
This presentation introduces the Open Archives Initiative (OAI) and discusses OAI tools such as the RE Automatic Test Suite, RE Browsing, and ARC.
Digital Library Evaluation, User Studies
While a number of kinds of evaluation/research studies may be conducted during the design and development of a digital library (e.g., usability testing), this module is concerned with methods for evaluating the outcomes, ...
Building Interoperable Digital Libraries: A Practical Guide to Creating Open Archives
This presentation focuses on the system architecture and history of the Open Archives Initiative (OAI). It discusses OAI case studies and the requirements to be an OAI data provider.
SEDNA XML Database
The module introduces the use of SEDNA XML database for XML retrieval. The primary focus of the module is to describe the architecture of SEDNA database and how standard XML queries can be used to retrieve data from it.
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 ...
Text Clustering Using LucidWorks and Apache Mahout
This module introduces algorithms and evaluation metrics for flat clustering. We focus on the usage of LucidWorks big data analysis software and Apache Mahout, an open source machine learning library in clustering of ...
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.
Intelligent Fusion of Structural and Citation-Based Evidence for Text Classification
(Department of Computer Science, Virginia Polytechnic Institute & State University, 2004), TR-04-16
This paper investigates how citation-based information and structural content (e.g., title, abstract) can be combined to improve classification of text documents into predefined categories. We evaluate different measures ...
A user's interaction with a DL is often initiated as the result of the user experiencing an information need of some kind. Aspects of that experience and how it might affect the user's interactions with the DL are discussed ...
Streams, Structures, Spaces, Scenarios, Societies (5S): A Formal Model for Digital Libraries
(Department of Computer Science, Virginia Polytechnic Institute & State University, 2003), TR-03-04
Digital libraries (DLs) are complex information systems and therefore demand formal foundations lest development efforts diverge and interoperability suffers. In this paper, we propose the fundamental abstractions of ...
