    • Working with JeromeDL
    • Demo
  • Social Semantic Digital Library
    • A library stores and provides access to resources (books)
    • Qualified staff updates catalogues and helps users
  • Social Semantic Digital Library
    • Machine-readable resources
    • Full-text index improves searching
    • Easy access
    • Availability
  • Social Semantic Digital Library
    • Resources are accessible by machines, not with machines
    • Metadata is rich and extensible
    • Searching reflects meaning of terms
    • RDF is a standard for representing information
    • Not just resources but also knowledge is shared
  • Social Semantic Digital Library
    • Involves the community into sharing knowledge
    • Utilizes social network in searching
    • Allows for comments, blogs, shared bookmarks
    • Easy tagging
  • Evolution of Libraries Social Semantic Digital Library Involves the community into sharing knowledge Semantic Digital Library Accessible by  machines, not only with machines Digital Library Online, easy searching with a full-text index Library Organized collection
  • Semantic Digital Library
    • Semantic digital libraries
      • integrate information based on different metadata, e.g.: resources, user profiles, bookmarks, taxonomies
      • provide interoperability with other systems (not only digital libraries)
      • deliver more robust, user friendly and adaptable search and browsing interfaces empowered by semantics

    • Supporting users and communities:
      • user s ha ve control over their profile information ;
      • community-aware profiles are integrated with bibliographic descriptions
      • support for community generated knowledge
    • Delivering communication between instances:
      • P2P mode for searching and users authentication
      • Hierarchical mode for browsing
  • JeromeDL – Social Semantic Digital Library
    • JeromeDL fulfills requirements of:
    • Librarians
      • precise annotations
      • rich metadata
    • Researchers
