LS DIGITAL FOR DIGITAL LIBRARY

  1. 1. “Building Digital Library Using LSDigital” Vinod Kumar, Assistant Librarian, Guru Jambheshwar University of Science & Technology, Hisar E-mail: vinugju@yahoo.com vinugju@gmail.com S.S. Joshi, Assistant Librarian, Guru Jambheshwar University of Science & Technology, Hisar E-mail: ssjoshi99@yahoo.com Abha Sharma Librarian, Haryana Space Application Centre, (HARSAC), HISAR E-mail: abhaharsac@yahoo.com
  2. 2. DIGITAL LIBRARY  Digital library is a cultural infrastructure that collects and stores information in electronic format and supports its users in accessing a large collection of information effectively through digital means
  3. 3. DIGITIZATION  Digitization of information basically means the process of converting paper documents such as text, graphics etc. into digital image, which can be make accessible through electronic network. We can say digitization means process which is meant to eliminate paperwork and make a transition to a paperless environment with the help of software technology.
  4. 4. CHARACTERISTICS OF DIGITAL LIBRARIES  User-friendly interface.  Advanced searching and retrieval.  Supporting multimedia content.  Availability for long time.  Network Accessibility
  5. 5. CHARACTERSTICS ……  Accessibility from anywhere, home, school, libraries, during travel etc.  Providing access to very large collections including access to primary and secondary information.  Greater opportunity for publishing etc.
  6. 6. BENEFITS OF DIGITAL LIBRARIES  24 hour accessibility of information  Multi-user Accessibility  Storage of information is cheaper in digital form than in printed form  Information sharing
  7. 7. BENEFITS ……  Quick transmission of information  Information is readily available  Enhanced searching techniques  Quick retrieval
  8. 8. FUNCTIONS…….  To enable greater access to information.  To provide means to enrich the teaching and learning environment  To protect owners of information
  9. 9. PROCESS OF COLLECTION DEVELOPMENT  Identification and selection of digital objects :- keeping in view of the objectives of the library, the digital material is identified and selected.  Scanning :- the selected objects may be of two types- born digitally or to be converted in digital form. If the material is print form, the same is converted in digital format by using scanners and related software.  Storage:- the digital objects are stored on a suitable device.  Retrieval:- the stored material is retrieved as and when required.
  10. 10. Hardware  Compute P IV with high capacity hard disk for server and clients in the LAN, Web servers and FTP Servers  Workstation PCs  Capture devices- scanners, cameras  High power UPS (5-20 KVS)  Output devices like- Printers, CD-ROM, DVD, OCR  High speed LAN, WAN, Internet connectivity
  11. 11. Software  Operating System  OCR software  Scanning Software  Acrobat Reader  CD-Read/Write software  Digital Library Software  Networking software, SQL server software  Web Designing software like Java, front page, XML etc.  RDBMS supporting the variety of digital databases like Oracle, MYSQL etc.  Full text search engine to index and provide access to digital resources.
  12. 12. LSDigital: Introduction LSDigital is an “Add-on” item to LibSys software and thus is fully compatible with LibSys. The entire process is fully automated thereby requiring minimum effort by the user and integration with LibSys database is implicit. It provides great benefits to the users who would be able to search both digitized and non-digitized library collection through a common library OPAC.
  13. 13. LSDigital  LSDigital of LibSys is a complete solution for managing digital resources. It is used for creating digital resources using any twain compliant scanner. There is option to import any pre-scanned images of the required resources. The digital resource created by this system preserves the visual layout of the document while providing full text search in the various sections of the resource. This is made possible by converting pages corresponding to each element of the digital resources into a corresponding ‘PDF’ text file
  14. 14. LSDigital supports the following functions:-  Resource Structure Definition  Scanning  Versions maintenance  PDF conversion  Resource Database maintenance  Searching and retrievals
  15. 15. Steps in collection building using LSDigital The steps involved in collection building using LSDigital are discussed in the coming slides.
  16. 16. LibSys-Cataloguing –Maintenance -Enter title
  17. 17. Select type of document and enter title
  18. 18. Enter bibliographical details
  19. 19. Give Call No. , Keywords or modify the records
  20. 20. Give accession no. & click OK
  21. 21. Now again come back to cataloguing Module
  22. 22. Cataloguing-> Maintenance-> Multimedia
  23. 23. Click on Add button:
  24. 24. Now click Scan Document:
  25. 25. Now LSDigital is ready to work Step No. 1 starts with the selection of category
  26. 26. Select Article / Thesis 1.
  27. 27. Right click on title & select Add Sub Item:
  28. 28. Type the name of book / thesis & go to Define Index:
  29. 29. Define no. of items / files to be imported (if it is 1 file, type 1-1), & click on save button
  30. 30. Save the settings
  31. 31. Step 2 starts with the Capturing the files
  32. 32. Open your tree & select the location for import, an icon will be enabled for importing:
  33. 33. After clicking Import icon, following window will open to select the desired file.
  34. 34. After importing, page will be viewed like this:
  35. 35. Click No, if you don’t want to save cover page:
  36. 36. If you are importing .pdf file then go directly to ‘Publish E- book button, else go to Conversion Step & Click on Convert All or Convert into PDF button.
  37. 37. Come back to Cataloguing----House keeping---- Rebuild Inverted Files:
  38. 38. And then update Inverted Files:
  39. 39. Now go to OPAC----Select Browsing----Type the name of document----Select Document & click E-Resource button:
  40. 40. E-book will be opened like this:
  41. 41. Now click on the tree for retrieval:
  42. 42. The complete digital object can be viewed.
  43. 43. Integration with LibSys OPAC (Printed Books) Example 1
  44. 44. Integration with LibSys OPAC (Printed Books) Example 2
  45. 45. CONCLUSION  In the present era, information is being generated in variety of ways on various format from various sources. To meet out the situation posed on the library, the selection, scanning, storage and retrieval of digital information have become the necessity. All libraries may have to build their digital libraries else have to acquire the capability to access other digital libraries or information on Internet for all their users. Many libraries are using various open source software like Greenstone, Fedora, DSpace, E-Prints etc. and Commercial software like LSDigital have appeared for building the digital library.
  46. 46. CONCLUSION  There is option to import any pre-scanned images of the required resources. The digital resource created by this system preserves the visual layout of the document while providing full text search in the various sections of the resource.  The entire process is fully automated thereby requiring minimum effort by the user and integration with LibSys database is implicit. The financial sound libraries using LibSys software for its housekeeping operations may use the LSDigital software for building digital library.
