    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»

    For the last five years, the Library of Congress has been building American Memory, providing free public access to historical materials converted to digital form. American Memory is not only an operational service, but also an ongoing experiment. Important lessons have been learned and can now be applied to plans for dealing with content originating in digital form. Challenges that remain also ap... 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»

  • View composition for digital libraries

    Publication Year: 2000, Page(s):426 - 433
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (616 KB)

    We propose a novel visual interface for digital libraries, which employs a collection of views and a compositional mechanism of views. While the views capture and visualize specific aspects of digital libraries, their compositions can be utilized to give deeper and richer insights into a set of retrieved data. Two types of compositions-superimposition and neighboring-of views are introduced. Some ... View full abstract»

    The Kyoto University Digital Library makes images of the rare materials that it holds available to general public. While most of the pages consist of scanned images alone, some are accompanied by corresponding encoded text data. This report summarizes the principal parts of the procedures for producing image data. Demand for a well-designed interface grows as the amount of available digital data e... View full abstract»

    We focus on the important role of human language technology as one of the key technologies for the universal access to worldwide digital libraries. In particular, linguistic barriers caused by the multilingual nature of the global information pool require solutions from cross-language information retrieval and machine translation. In our research we developed a machine translation environment for ... View full abstract»

    There are many and varied search engines (SEs) on the Internet but it is still hard to locate and concentrate only on materials relevant to a specific task. Digital libraries (DLs) could better provide such services on the Web. There is a real need to formulate a methodology for the understanding of both these types of Web data repositories. We classify both SEs and DLs using similar criteria on b... 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»

    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»

    In Japanese puppet theatre plays, especially those written by the great playwright Chikamatsu Monzaemon (1653-1725), the michiyuki served a transformative function. Characters in the plays, especially domestic tragedies culminating in lovers' suicides, frequently weak and flawed characters who were trapped into a position in which death seemed the only way out, were transformed during the michiyuk...

    The World Wide Web provides access to a great deal of information on a vast array of subjects. In a typical Web search a vast amount of information is retrieved. The quantity can be overwhelming, and much of the information may be marginally relevant or completely irrelevant to the user's request. We present a methodology, architecture, and proof-of-concept prototype for query construction and res... View full abstract»

    Link-based domain models are hyperstructures that have domain specific semantics. They can be represented using new Web standards and can be applied in formulating structured queries so that Web users can get more specific results relevant to their information needs. This paper presents this idea and discusses several technical issues in implementing the idea. DELITE Online, an online information ... View full abstract»
