What is Digital information:

The information or data, which is available in the form of Computer Readable format.

Born Digital or Converted Digital.

Format is based on :

Html, Jpg, Mp3, PDF, PPT, DOC, Excel, SCANNED MATERIALS etc.

Purpose of Digital Library  : Create & Organise Digital Information for easy retrieval. We can Organise & Circulate in-house “gray literature”, Converted & Downloaded Digital Information to the end users. We can develop the concept of 24 x 7 information dissemination through network connectivity. Tutorial for GS

Start your ‘NEW’ collection & Specify collection Title & Description of content. Tutorial for GS

‘ Gather’ from Local Filespace ( Hard Drives ) Tutorial for GS

‘ Enrich’ Define Dublin Core Metadata  Tutorial for GS

‘ Design’ M ost important & indispensable area Initially we have to work on : Document Plugins Search Types Search indexes Cross-collection search Browsing Classifiers Tutorial for GS

Initially we have to work on :

Document Plugins

Search Types

Search indexes

Cross-collection search

Browsing Classifiers

‘ Design’ Document Plugins : Introduce the format, in which the data is available We have to specify once the format in a new collection Example : For a PowerPoint file we have to select [ plugin pptplug ] Tutorial for GS

Introduce the format, in which the data is available

We have to specify once the format in a new collection

Example : For a PowerPoint file we have to select [ plugin pptplug ]

‘ Design’ Search types : We have to select “Enable Advanced Searches”, which activates the other controls. It changes the collection to use an indexing mechanism that allows fielded searching with ease. ( plain ) Tutorial for GS

We have to select “Enable Advanced Searches”, which activates the other controls.

It changes the collection to use an indexing mechanism that allows fielded searching with ease. ( plain )

‘ Design’ Search indexes : Indexes specify what parts of the collection are searchable. Example : We can search by Key words, Contributor, Date wise, Title etc. In a collection we have to specify the link between metadata field with DC fields once Tutorial for GS

Indexes specify what parts of the collection are searchable.

Example : We can search by Key words, Contributor, Date wise, Title etc.

In a collection we have to specify the link between metadata field with DC fields once

‘ Design’ Cross-collection Search : Greenstone can search across several different collections as though they were one. This is done by specifying a list of other collections to be searched along with the current one. It will link automatically several collections when searching. Tutorial for GS

Greenstone can search across several different collections as though they were one. This is done by specifying a list of other collections to be searched along with the current one.

It will link automatically several collections when searching.

‘ Design’ Browsing Classifiers : The classifier can arrange the navigation bottom as per the requirement Example : We can see, title, date, contributors etc. as per our requirement. Tutorial for GS

The classifier can arrange the navigation bottom as per the requirement

Example : We can see, title, date, contributors etc. as per our requirement.

‘ Design’ Browsing Classifiers : It is so simple, if we properly linked the metadata with the data field then our purpose will be solved. Tutorial for GS

Now U R in the end of the session After design “click on “ create ”. It means your new collection is ready. Click on “ Build Collection ” & click on “ Preview Collection ” it’s look like… Tutorial for GS

After design “click on “ create ”. It means your new collection is ready.

Tips… Tutorial for GS Enrich : dc Contributor : Only Author dc Date : Date of the collection dc Format : Format of the file dc Source : From where dc Language : Which language As per requirement we can add / delete the metadata fields.

Tips… Tutorial for GS Design : Cross-Collection Search : Tick on collections for grouping search. Browsing Classifiers : Select classifier to add AZ List => Argument is => metadata-dc Title, bottonname-title ( for title )

Design :

Cross-Collection Search : Tick on collections for grouping search.

Browsing Classifiers : Select classifier to add AZ List => Argument is => metadata-dc Title, bottonname-title ( for title )

Tips… Tutorial for GS Select classifier to add => Date List => Argument is => metadata-dc date, short dc date, bottonname-Date ( for date ) Select classifier to add => AZcompact List => Argument is => metadata-dc Contributor, bottonname-contributor’s ( for contributor “Author” ) Select classifier to add => List => metadata - dc format, short - dc format bottonname-Format ( for Format )
