Schema Mapper: A Visualization Tool for DL Integration
(Department of Computer Science, Virginia Polytechnic Institute & State University, 2005), TR-05-05
Schema mapping is a challenging problem. It has come to the fore in recent years; there are important applications like database schema integration and, more recently, digital library merging of heterogeneous data. Previous ...
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 ...
This module addresses the use of metadata, specific metadata standards that may be used to describe digital objects, and the creation of metadata records.
This module covers the principles and application of the digitization process for digital libraries. Students will be able to explain the digitization process, understand the critical issues and challenges of digitization ...
Preservation of Etds on Ndltd Version 1.0
(Department of Computer Science, Virginia Polytechnic Institute & State University, 2003), TR-03-02
Theses and dissertations published at a university are important research resources. ETDs (Electronic Theses and Dissertations) are simply the theses and dissertations published in electronic form (e.g., in PDF). Many ...
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, ...
Conceptual Frameworks, Models, Theories, and Definitions
This module introduces several conceptual modules characterizing the digital library domain. Students will be provided with a high level yet comprehensive knowledge of several conceptual frameworks and models, a unifying ...
ETANA-DL: A Digital Library for Integrated Handling of Heterogeneous Archaeological Data
(Department of Computer Science, Virginia Polytechnic Institute & State University, 2004), TR-04-04
Archaeologists have to deal with vast quantities of information, generated both in the field and laboratory. That information is heterogeneous in nature, and different projects have their own systems to store and use it. ...
Hadoop Map-Reduce is a software framework for writing applications for processing large amounts of data in parallel on commodity hardware.
Designing of a Community-based Translation Center
(Department of Computer Science, Virginia Polytechnic Institute & State University, 2003), TR-03-30
Interfaces that support multi-lingual content can reach a broader community. We wish to extend the reach of CITIDEL, a digital library for computing education materials, to support multiple languages. By doing so, we hope ...
