Editorial Reviews

Review

"This book provides broad coverage of related work in the field. That is handy, since there is a large international community working on DLs."-- Edward A. Fox, Director, Digital Library Research Laboratory, Blacksburg, VA

"These chapters (along with the others) are well written and fully illustrated by screen shots and other examples, making the presentation of the technical content very effective.... [T]his is a very worthwhile addition to the literature of digital libraries"-- Thomas D. Wilson, Professor Emeritus at the Department of Information Studies, University of Sheffield, Visiting Professor at Leeds University Business School, Visiting Professor at the University of Boras, Sweden. http://informationr.net/ir/reviews/revs409.html

From the Back Cover

How to Build a Digital Library is the only book that offers all the knowledge and tools needed to construct and maintain a digital library, regardless of the size or purpose. It is a self-contained resource for individuals, companies, and institutions wishing to put these powerful tools to work in their burgeoning information treasuries. This Second Edition reflects the rapid evolution of the field, with new material on multimedia, metadata and internationalization. New technologies are integrated with concepts from library and information science to provide a comprehensive social, technical and practical treatment of digital libraries. Part II describes how this is put into practice with the Greenstone Digital Library Software, a popular open source software tool suite. For the second edition this material has been completely rewritten to reflect new developments in the software, including a comprehensive graphical facility for creating and maintaining digital libraries and numerous interoperability features.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
There is some really good information in this book regarding the fundamentals, history, theory and practice of building digital libraries. I'd recommend the first half of the book to anybody.

However, the second half of the book is burdened by heavy reliance on the Greenstone software package: a gnarly hack of Perl, C++ and Java code which should be relegated to the software dustbin. It's a shame when quality guidance is burdened by bad software.
