Open source tools developing digital libraries

  1. 1. A. ROSELINE MLIS 2ND YEAR 4TH SEM PONDICHERRY UNIVERSITY
  2. 2.  The term “Open Source” refers to software that is free and that includes the original source code used to create it so that users can modify it to make it work better for them.  It may be free, a developer or distributor may charge for services, training, installation and technical support.
  3. 3. • Free redistribution • Source code • Integrity of the author’s source code • No discrimination against persons or groups • Distribution of license • License must not be specific to a product. • license must not restrict other software
  4. 4.  Dspace  EPrint  Green stone
  5. 5.  Developed by HP-MIT Alliance, in 2002 Installed and is in production at over 373 institutions  Available under BSD(Berkeley Software distribution) license  Version 1.5 has been chosen for this study.  “DSpace is a groundbreaking digital institutional repository that captures, stores, indexes, preserves, and redistributes the intellectual output of a university’s research faculty in digital formats.”  www.dspace.org
  6. 6.  Supports submission of, management of, and access to digital content ◦ Formats: text, images, audio, video  Organized based on organizational needs of a large university ◦ Communities and collections
  7. 7.  Digital preservation ◦ Support levels for different file formats  Access control  Search and retrieval ◦ Based on qualified Dublin Core metadata  OAI-PMH data provider ◦ To support metadata harvesters
  8. 8.  OS: Unix or Linux  Written in Java  PostgreSQL relational database  Provides complete Web user interface, but Java APIs available  MIT DSpace ◦ dspace.mit.edu
  9. 9.  Developed by School of Electronic and Computer Science, University of Southampton, UK in 2000  Till today 287 known registered archives are running Eprints worldwide.  Version 3.1 has been chosen for the purpose of the study.  Can be configured as institutional repository or otherwise, e.g. repository focused on particular research area or discipline  Licensed under GNU General Public License  software.eprints.org
  10. 10.  Supports submission, management of, and access to digital content  Can support multiple archives on one server  Moderated or immoderate archives  Search and retrieval ◦ Based on metadata ◦ Metadata can be customized for different archives and document types  No access control  OAI-PMH data provider
  11. 11.  OS: Unix or Linux  Written in Perl  Requirements: ◦ Apache web server ◦ MySQL relational database
  12. 12.  “Suite of software for building and distributing digital library collections”  Developed by University of Waikato, New Zealand ◦ Developed in cooperation with UNESCO and the Human Info NGO  Licensed under GNU General Public License • The latest version is Greenstone 2.82 and 3.03  www.greenstone.org
  13. 13.  Web interface for search and retrieval ◦ Customizable metadata ◦ Supports full text search of content  Extensive document filters ◦ Word, Excel, PowerPoint, PDF, ... ◦ Can extract metadata from documents  Many ways to build a collection, including: ◦ Local files ◦ Retrieve web sites ◦ Retrieve objects via OAI-PMH  Full text search  Multi-language support for browse/ search interface  Plug-ins for Documents
  14. 14.  Runs on Windows (back to 3.1), Linux, Mac OS X, Unix  Written in C++, Perl, and Java  Uses MG/MG++ search engine  Several different Web and Java/Swing user interfaces for various functions  Web interface for user access
  15. 15. Advantages  Access to source code and ability and right to modify it  Right to redistribute modifications to benefit wider community  Free  Excellent support networks  Large and enthusiastic user base Disadvantages  Limited or no accountability  Informal and unaccountable support channels
