    Summary form only given. We have been developing base technologies that are required to overcome some of the most critical barriers to effective digital libraries. One of these barriers is the heterogeneity of information and services. Another impediment is the lack of powerful filtering mechanisms that let users find truly valuable information. Third, the continuous access to information is restr... View full abstract»

    This paper describes applications of the optimized pattern discovery framework to text and Web mining. In particular, we introduce a class of simple combinatorial patterns over phrases, called proximity phrase association patterns, and consider the problem of finding the patterns that optimize a given statistical measure within the whole class of patterns in a large collection of unstructured text...

    The copyright field throughout Europe is dynamic, exciting and frustrating. New technology has provided new opportunities for libraries, but has also posed new challenges. Most copyright laws in Europe were developed for the paper-based environment and now have to be re-interpreted to apply to digital material. This has resulted in many people, including legal experts, being uncertain as to what t... View full abstract»

    This paper proposes a new approach to solve the data inputting bottleneck problem for library catalog data, or metadata. The data have been provided by paper cards arranged in wooden boxes. A lot of efforts have been taken to digitize them in order to put these data to be machine-readable. However, despite such efforts, only a small amount of data has been digitized so far because the inputting is... View full abstract»

    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»

    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»

    The article argues that the adventure of creating a viable economy of digitally-enabled repositories and services requires much creativity, but above all an unswerving focus on the scholarly mission. Institutions that participate actively in this adventure are becoming “laboratories for the liberal arts and sciences” in vital ways that some fear they have lost or are about to lose, and...

    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»

    Today's systems for content based image retrieval (CBIR) suffer from several drawbacks: first, user interfaces are much too complicated for average users; second, the quality of results tends to be low; finally, querying performance with often long reply times is unsatisfactory. We have developed a model for CBIR searches intended to overcome these drawbacks where the user has to select only one o... View full abstract»
