mSpace meets EPrints: a Case Study in Creating Dynamic Digital Collections

schraefel, m.c., Smith, Daniel Alexander and Carr, Leslie A. (2006) mSpace meets EPrints: a Case Study in Creating Dynamic Digital Collections s.n.

Record type: Monograph (Project Report)


In this case study we look at issues involved in (a) generating dynamic digital libraries that are on a particular topic but span heterogeneous collections at distinct sites, (b) supplementing the artefacts in that collection with additional information available either from databases at the artefact's home or from the Web at large, and (c) providing an interaction paradigm that will support effective exploration of this new resource. We describe how we used two available frameworks, mSpace and EPrints to support this kind of collection building. The result of the study is a set of recommendations to improve the connectivity of remote resources both to one another and to related Web resources, and that will also reduce problems like co-referencing in order to enable the creation of new collections on demand.
