    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (272 KB)

    In 1996, when Keio University acquired the Gutenberg Bible, the Humanities Media Interface (HUMI) project was launched to digitize historic books. Intended to pave the way for a planned digital research library, HUMI is an inter-faculty initiative with several sub-projects. One of the HUMI's main tasks has been to establish a safe and effective method for the digitization of old, fragile books. St... View full abstract»

  • On spatial information retrieval and database generalization

    Publication Year: 2000, Page(s):328 - 334
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (676 KB)

    Spatial data are often stored in a database with the finest level of details. The problem with cartographic generalization of spatial data is concerned with deriving spatial data with proper level of details when the data are used for an application. The generalization process is not simply a process of selecting objects or parts of objects suitable for an application; it should maintain the seman... View full abstract»

    Nara Institute of Science and Technology (NAIST) started practical services of a digital library system for campus use since April 1996. After 4 years experience, we did a redesign of the digital library system in 1999. Operation of the 2nd generation system started in April 2000. We describe the design policy of the digital library system. A system overview is also introduced. We continue researc... View full abstract»

    The Internet functions as a huge digital library, which is open to us all. As the Internet rapidly grows and expands, this virtual library becomes real. The Web is surely the world's libraries' largest copying machine. We now see in the digital environment that two types of digital libraries are emerging and competing. The contrast between the Internet digital library and the digital library syste... View full abstract»

    The authors discuss association rules which can be discovered from Web data. The association rules are discussed within the scope of our WHOWEDA (warehouse of Web data) project. WHOWEDA is supported by a Web data model and a set of algebraic operators. The Web data model allows a uniform and integrated view of Web data gathered using a user's query graph. A user's query graph describes the query b... View full abstract»

    The Web is more and more used as a platform for full-fledged increasingly complex applications, where a huge amount of change-intensive data is managed by underlying database systems. From a software engineering point of view, the development of Web applications requires proper modeling methods in order to ensure architectural soundness and maintainability. Existing modeling methods for Web applic... View full abstract»

  • Accessing a multi-terabyte seismological archive using a metadata portal

    Publication Year: 2000, Page(s):335 - 340
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (448 KB)

    Seismological data are voluminous. Typical researchers cannot be expected to be able to search through the quantity of seismograms to find those that might contribute to their research topic. For this reason, metadata, stored in a relational database management system is used to assist seismologists in determining which pieces of the seismological archive may possess the information needed for the...

    This paper describes the architecture of an automated reference service system developed for Kyoto University Library. The system employs two knowledge bases; the NDLC database for handling major questions at libraries such as “I am looking for books on...”, and the general knowledge base written in natural language for handling other questions. Another characteristic of the system is ... View full abstract»

    As the volume of Web pages on the Internet is increasing rapidly, it is becoming hard for users to discover valuable Web resources. It is especially difficult for naive users to discover informative pages by popular Web search engines, since they don't have background and domain knowledge about the status of Web systems. Therefore, many kinds of Web search engines have been developed in order to s... View full abstract»

    Current large-scale information sources are designed to support general queries and lack the ability to support scenario specific information navigation, gathering and presentation. As a result, users are often unable to obtain desired specific information within a well-defined subject area. Today's information systems do not provide efficient content navigation, incremental appropriate matching, ... View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (684 KB)

    We discuss various secured Web access schemes using dynamic and static approaches. In a static approach the access environment, that is, the set of authorized users, the mode of access, their access rights, etc., are predefined. This approach is suitable only for a static set up where the user requirements do not change frequently. In the dynamic approach, on the other hand, the authorized user se... View full abstract»

    The paper proposes a technique for automatically generating Qualified Dublin Core metadata (Weibel, 2000) on a Web server using a Java Servlet. The metadata is structured using the Resource Description Framework (RDF) and expressed in eXtensible Markup Language (XML). The descriptions cover ten of the fifteen standard Dublin Core metadata elements and semantic precision is increased by element ref... View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (820 KB)

    Computers are expanding their target of augmentation from individuals and enterprises to societies. The augmentation of societies requires a new type of media that can carry a wide variety of intellectual resources, replicate themselves, recombine themselves, and be naturally selected by their environment. They may be called “meme media”, since they carry what R. Dawkins (1976) called ... View full abstract»

  • Digital libraries: did you ask the users?

    Publication Year: 2000

    The necessity for a more comprehensive understanding of user needs, objectives, and behaviour in employing digital library systems is stressed repeatedly in new projects as the basis for designing effective systems. However, not many such projects seem to follow a rigorous “user-centered” design approach, with a strong involvement of a key library user: the librarians. A strong coopera... View full abstract»

    Due to the recent growth of digital multimedia transmissions on the Internet, the need for the intellectual property rights protection of multimedia information, like images, music and videos, has become more and more important. Many digital watermarking techniques have been proposed to solve this problem by hiding an invisible watermark in an image to prove the ownership of the image. In this pap... View full abstract»
