In this paper we analyze the semantics of the archival description, expressed through the Encoded Archival Description. Through this analysis it is concluded that an EAD document is a hierarchy of documentation elements and attributes and that through this documentation the archive is semantically expressed through three di erent hierarchies (hierarchy of physical objects, hierarchy of information objects and hierarchy of linguistic objects). The semantic views of the archive as well as their interrelationships are mapped to the CIDOC CRM.
The International Conference "Berlin 5 - From Practice to impact. Consequences of knowledge dissemination", held in Padua from September 19th to 21st, confirmed that Open Access is a clear concept, but a complex reality, as it is a matter of digital access, of economics sustainability, of quality, of infrastructures, of policies. Following the topics pointed out in the speeches, this contribute tries to match the Open Access strategies - self-archiving and publishing in OA journals - with the current or possible behaviours of the agents involved - authors, institutions, libraries, publishers, readers - in order to draw a framework of the works in progress and to outline viable pathways, given that each science is "a" science, and has its own communication tools.
This presentation reviews emerging innovative services that enhance patron access, use, or manipulation of information resources within a digital framework, and the associated technologies.
Cataloging online documents requires a finer level of granularity than many other objects. Collecting that data is a costly process to achieve and manage. One possible approach towards cataloging these resources is to get a commonity of providers involved in cataloging the materials that they provide. This paper introduces RePEc of http://netec.wust.edu/RePEc, as an example for such an approach. RePEc is mainly a catalog of research papers in Economics. In May 1999, it is based on set of over 80 archives which all work independently but yet are interoperable. They together provide data about almost 60,000 preprints and over 10,000 published articles. In principle each institution participating in RePEc provides its own papers by providing and maintaining an archive. The key issue of the paper is to evaluate the success of that decentra...
The main news at a technologic level can be found generally in the so-called wireless connectivity, and specifically in the electronic publishing (e-book) and personal digital organizer fields. New technologies implementations that increase the number of electronic informative resources and the chance of access both for academic, professional and business world. The conference seemed to ask some questions coming from the weave between new contents, new access modalities and their impact on the final user and on the knowledge diffusion.
Log file analysis for the web site of Rudjer Boskovic Institute library gives us a useful insight into structure and needs of our users. We can recognize two main groups based on the number of visits and preferences in respect to content. The first group consists of visitors looking for specific information about Rudjer Boskovic Institute and our library. Visitors from the second group are using our web pages exclusively as a starting point in searching for scientific information and resources. In developing our new web site, we have to pay attention to separation of those two kinds of content and therefore to enhance navigation.
