Transcript of "Images Of Textiles"

  1. 1. MIDESS M anagement of I mages in a D istributed E nvironment using S hared S ervices. Dr Stephen Charles MIDESS Project Manager
  2. 2. MIDESS Project <ul><li>Looking at the issues involved in using and sharing multimedia material (not just images!) in digital repositories. </li></ul><ul><li>Areas of interest. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Interoperability between different repositories (DSpace, Fedora, DigiTool) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Metadata schemas/metadata for multimedia </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Integration with Enterprise Architecture </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Long term preservation of digital material </li></ul></ul>
  3. 3. MIDESS Project <ul><li>MIDESS partners are: </li></ul><ul><li>University of Birmingham </li></ul><ul><li>University of Leeds </li></ul><ul><li>London School of Economics (LSE) </li></ul><ul><li>University College London (no repository installed as part of MIDESS project – examined copyright issues around multimedia). </li></ul><ul><li>Sponsored by the JISC and by CURL </li></ul>
  4. 4. Digital Repository Software evaluated in depth as part of the MIDESS project <ul><li>Dspace (open source) </li></ul><ul><li>Fedora (open source) </li></ul><ul><li>Greenstone (open source) </li></ul><ul><li>Encompass/Curator (commercial) </li></ul><ul><li>DigiTool (commercial) </li></ul><ul><li>Symposia (commercial) </li></ul><ul><li>Detailed evaluation of all products on MIDESS website (Work Package 3) </li></ul>
  5. 5. MIDESS work-packages <ul><li>User needs analysis </li></ul><ul><li>Functional and technical evaluation of digital repository software packages </li></ul><ul><li>Implementation of digital repository. </li></ul><ul><li>Metadata requirements analysis </li></ul><ul><li>Digital preservation requirements analysis </li></ul><ul><li>Enterprise integration </li></ul><ul><li>Copyright and IPR review </li></ul><ul><li>Resource discovery and shared services review </li></ul><ul><li>Metadata Harvesting </li></ul><ul><li>Evaluation and dissemination </li></ul>
  6. 6. Enterprise Integration: Streamed Server and SAN <ul><li>MIDESS video and sound material stored in a MIDESS repository is streamed from a Helix streamed server (Example in demonstration) </li></ul><ul><li>Integration with Storage Area Network (SAN). Flexibility in speed of access dependent upon where files are stored on the SAN. </li></ul>
  7. 7. Digital Collections at the MIDESS Partners <ul><li>These include: </li></ul><ul><li>Medical images - slides/x-rays, etc.(Birmingham/Leeds) </li></ul><ul><li>Dialect recordings (Leeds School of English) </li></ul><ul><li>Fine art images (Birmingham/Leeds) </li></ul><ul><li>Digitised pages from manuscripts and other Library special collections (Leeds/Birmingham/LSE) </li></ul><ul><li>Images of textiles (Leeds Textile Museum) </li></ul><ul><li>Images and video from Media Services (LSE/Birmingham/Leeds/) </li></ul><ul><li>Recordings of music (Birmingham/Leeds) </li></ul><ul><li>Training/E-learning material/video of lectures etc (LSE/Birmingham/Leeds/) </li></ul>
  8. 8. Manuscripts (Birmingham/ Leeds,) Coins (Birmingham,Leeds) Medical images (Leeds, Birmingham) Media Services Images (LSE , Leeds,, Birmingham)
  9. 9. Sharing Data across Repositories <ul><li>What are the best techniques? </li></ul><ul><li>OAI-PMH (Metadata Harvesting)? But doesn’t harvest the bitstream (image, video, sound etc). </li></ul><ul><li>Export of files eg METS? </li></ul><ul><li>Export from underlying database (Oracle, SQL Server MySQL etc)? </li></ul>
  10. 10. Next Step - Integration of Digital Library Systems <ul><li>The ultimate goal is to integrate the following seamlessly: </li></ul><ul><li>Digital repositories (Scholarly repository, Multimedia repository, e-learning repository etc) </li></ul><ul><li>VLE’s </li></ul><ul><li>Portal Systems </li></ul><ul><li>Library Management Systems </li></ul><ul><li>Electronic Journals etc. </li></ul>
  11. 11. Digital Repositories requirements/wish list <ul><li>Improved Digital Preservation support - system addition of technical/preservation metadata and updating of formats. </li></ul><ul><li>Flexible metadata standards (not just Dublin Core/qualified Dublin Core). May include: VRA Core/LOM/bespoke metadata schemas (schemas should be easy to create) etc. </li></ul><ul><li>Highly CUSTOMISABLE digital repository systems which can be EASILY tailored (ideally without resorting to Java/complex programming etc). </li></ul>
  12. 12. Digital Repositories requirements/wish list <ul><li>Flexibility in authentication using techniques such as IP address restrictions, LDAP (Windows active directory), Shibboleth, Passwords etc. </li></ul><ul><li>Ability to handle content packaging standards for e-learning (eg IMS, SCORM etc). Library based repositories are poor at this. </li></ul><ul><li>Ability to easily interface with other systems eg: Library Systems, Portals, Virtual Learning Environment’s etc). </li></ul>
  13. 13. Multimedia Demonstration Repositories <ul><li>DSpace Birmingham </li></ul><ul><li>http://midess.bham.ac.uk:8080/dspace/ </li></ul><ul><li>Fedora LSE </li></ul><ul><li>http://lib-2.lse.ac.uk/fedora/search </li></ul><ul><li>Leeds </li></ul><ul><li>http://ex-lo-bma.exlibrisgroup.com:8881/ </li></ul><ul><li>http://midess1.leeds.ac.uk:8881/ </li></ul><ul><li>Zoomify (protects high resolution images) </li></ul><ul><li>http://www.leeds.ac.uk/library/midess/zoom/ </li></ul>
  14. 14. Summary <ul><li>Setting up digital repositories requires a lot of work! </li></ul><ul><li>No such thing (yet) as the ideal Digital Repository software, all have strengths and weaknesses. </li></ul><ul><li>Important to understand user requirements before you start. </li></ul><ul><li>Its early days for digital repositories – numerous improvements on the way. </li></ul>
  15. 15. Questions? <ul><li>Dr Stephen Charles </li></ul><ul><li>MIDESS Project Manager </li></ul><ul><li>Edward Boyle Library </li></ul><ul><li>University of Leeds </li></ul><ul><li>Phone 0113 3437783 </li></ul><ul><li>[email_address] </li></ul><ul><li>Project website: http://www.leeds.ac.uk/MIDESS </li></ul>
