Digital Libraries - Science topic
A digital library is a library in which collections are stored in digital formats (as opposed to print, microform, or other media) and accessible by computers. The digital content may be stored locally, or accessed remotely via computer networks. A digital library is a type of information retrieval system.
Questions related to Digital Libraries
What would you use Natural Language Processing techniques for if you had access to an enormous digital library of data on "democracy" & closely related concepts?
This question comes from Agustin Goenaga's essay here: https://theloop.ecpr.eu/what-democracy-should-be-for-us/
How can I search in ACM Digital Library with the exact term only ? (When I search with the term computer for example, it gives me undesired words like computation, computing, etc. And the existing solutions to resolve this problem don't work for me!)
Another question, is there a way to export all the results with their abstracts from ACM DL ?
Thank You All.
I'm interested in repositories like zenodo, figshare, etc., where open-access papers (previously published) can be uploaded in order to improve the visibility of papers. Thanks a lot for your suggestions!
I would like to replace the list of publications in my resume with a simple link (URL) pointing to my publications in ResearchGate. I am surprised not to have found that.
I am looking for the publication/technical report
>J. S. Bridle and M. D. Brown (1974), "An Experimental Automatic Word-Recognition System", JSRU Report No. 1003, Joint Speech Research Unit, Ruislip, England.
which is cited in many papers, yet it proves to be very difficult to find a copy of this publication. No library I contacted including the ACM digital library can locate this report. As this work appears to be the first to use mel-frequency cepstral coefficients I am very interested in reading it.
Perhaps someone knows of another approach to finding this work or even has a copy of it?
Thank you for any suggestion!
Big Data is another trend in the world of ICT which has implication for information management. In this regard,can libraries manage Big Data in term of its volume,velocity, and varieties? The amount of data in the world today has been exploding. How could libraries help in managing Big Data?
I am publishing articles that use several different datasets to calculate results and I would like to share them so that other researchers can use the same data for post-process analysis and verification.
Colleagues, I am currently working on a project in my Master's Degree in Documentation that deals with evaluation indicators of digital libraries
Education can be obtained by various means of accessibilities nowadays. Education is one of the areas that have been affected due to growing computer digital technologies. Digital libraries, unlike conventional libraries. Digital libraries are in your hands that a single user can access his own devices like cellphones, tab, laptop, and computers, etc. There are special advantages, distinct benefits and technical abilities of the E-learining System than the conventional library system. E-learners are increasing day by day due to the advancement of modern technologies but the traditional learners are also switched over to modern e-learning in the easiest way.
Conventional libraries are mostly attached to academic institutions where the students, scholars, and teachers in colleges, universities, and public libraries, etc. Digital E-learning provides Virtual Learning Environment where the users are enjoying enormous information access benefits at the moment itself. Conventional libraries system demands entry registration, token requires while lending books, time-consuming limitations, etc are distinct disadvantages the are disliked by the common users. The times are changing to become digitalized learning is everywhere in developing countries like developed countries. The point of saturation is not like developed countries but it needs to be developed more in terms of accessibility, availability, and affordability of the devices and information by every user.
I urgently require the following paper :
Tightly-focused femtosecond laser interaction with water
Proceedings Volume 11201, SPIE Micro + Nano Materials, Devices, and Applications 2019; 112010U (2019) https://doi.org/10.1117/12.2541212
I don't have access to SPIE digital library. Can anybody please send me a soft copy?
Can the associated legendre function be expressed in terms of a contour integral in a similar way the Jacobi, (normal) Legendre function and other polynomials are? (see table 18.10.1 of the Digital Library of Mathematical Functions link below)
Best regards, and thanks!
I was wondering if there's some service similar to ZINC but where you can download virtual libraries (some thousands) of short peptides (3-5, maybe 6 residues) instead of small molecules, to use for virtual screening.
Since 2010, library publishing services have been available in the library of the Dnipro National University of Railway Transport (Ukraine). It would be interesting to work with you on researching various aspects of library digital publishing services.
Are there any curated scientific databases specific to machine learning / artificial intelligence (in, or not in medicine)? Doing a systematic review, so want to make sure I'm covered. I have IEEE Xplore and ACM Digital library on my list thus far.
There can be two types of researchers, those with no or just few published works, we call them novice. On the other hand, other class of researchers possess a good number of published articles in a particular domain. What in your opinion is the difference in the requirements between these two kinds of researchers when they visit a digital library to find a relevant research article.?
I'm working on a systematic mapping in computer science subject. In the step of "Identification of Research", I choose to work with these digital libraries : IEEE Xplore, Scopus, Web of Science, ACM DL, Science Direct. My problem is that I found in total 60.930 results after doing all possible filters (ACM DL and Science Direct had the big part of this number and do not offer an interesting filters).
Is it normal to work with this number ? Or should I eliminate some libraries ? Or other solution ..? Thank you all.
Since I am publishing my first Paper, It would be great if you could give me hints on how to decide on where to publish.
1. International Journal of Information and Education Technology (IJIET) ISSN: 2010-3689; Abstracting/Indexing: EI (INSPEC, IET), Electronic Journals Library, Google Scholar, Crossref and ProQuest.
2. International Conference Proceedings Series by ACM, which will be archived in the ACM Digital Library, and indexed by Ei Compendex and Scopus.
I have many digital references for my research work (books, papers, datasheets, reports, manuals etc.). I'm spending too much time and energy to search on my computr when I need to review some documents. I need to create a digital library on my computer for managing references to make access to any document easy and time conserving. Thank you in advance.
While digital libraries have information systems as subsystems inside them, their behavior may not be of an information system. If this claim is true, then we can not assess the digital library using methods that are useful for IS, like CSF(critical success factor) or TAM(technology adoption model).
I am interested in knowledge integration, - organization and - management. The three seem to be different areas of research. Are digital libraries making use of them?

I am looking for a way in which I can count the number of articles/meta-analysis published in Pubmed-indexed journal for a particular year.
Is there any existing tool for this ?
How to decide precision/recall when an Information Retrieval system retrieve more general cases?
For example, say there is a journal recommender system suggests the best matching journal based on an input abstract. Following are the results for a input abstract:
Subject of the input abstract - 'cardiology'
Say, it retrieves three journal titles under subjects: 'cardiology', 'dermatology', 'medicine', and 'oncology'.
Here, obviously the first journal is relevant since it is about 'cardiology', but neither second one nor the fourth. However, the third one is more general and it is generally about medicine. In this case, if I need to calculate the precision/recall, then, should I have to count the third one as relevant since 'cardiology' is a subset of 'medicine'?
Any help would be highly appreciated.
Trying to see there newspaper databases that include page numbers for stories

Thank you very much.
I have done lot of research as an undergraduate student and I would like to share it with other people. However, I don't know if it is appropriate to do without first publishing it with well known publisher. For example, I think that as an electrical engineer I need to first publish my research with IEEE before I can share it to the world. The reason I want to do that because it may lead to possible collaboration and networking. Please guide me in the right direction.
I am scoping a potential research project based on the library of Dmitrije Mitrinovic and his circle, which is held at Bradford, following on from the recently completed cataloguing of his archive. The library includes complex multi-lingual annotations and other engagements with books as artefacts, which we believe will offer further insights into Mitrinovic's work in politics and culture. Most of the books are mainstream C19 and C20 titles from standard publishers. Has anyone worked on similar annotated libraries?
How to set up a commodities collection - books, ebooks, journals, ejournals and databases - in a business library?
Suggestions can come from any aspect of Information Ethics. I want to explore factors that make professionals in academic libraries practice Information Ethics.
part of my PhD proposal regards the key factors that influence the implementation of DL. I believe that DLs are context based; so the design and implementation of a DL in one country is different from another and even from one organization to another it will be different too. For instance one factor my be language.
I'm setting up a digital archive of the hardcopies in our library archival collection, which were donated to the library over many years. I'm currently writing a paper on this activity.
This small NGO library is using InMagic and needs to set up a satellite library in another location but does not have sufficient funding.
In special libraries, digitization of resources is now common practice. Should everything be digitized just because it can be? Is there a danger that resources are being digitized without consideration of actual worth? And, does digitization mean that a document will be eternally accessible, even as the way users access information keeps changing?
Which open source software and methodology exists to conversion, storage, availability and digital preservation of rare documents, especially books?
A few years ago S. Nicholson and J. Stanton defined "bibliomining" as "application of DM tools to large amounts of data associated with library systems". I'm looking for implementations of this concept (from the last 10 years): information about research, projects, tools, algorythms etc.

If I have data from four miRNA libraries. One of the libraries have 4 times more reads than other three libraries. How will the data be normalized among different libraries? People use EDGER and DESeq for normalization. Although, I do understand the basic concept of total count methods. But I do not understand how these softwares do the normalization (I mean the scaling factors) and how effective is that normalization on cases like I described above.
Any explanation would be highly appreciated.
During one of the phases of my research I reached to a point that I need to do a search with Google on "digital libraries" in Iran,so that the results limit to only the main pages of websites. I don't need the extra pages and repetition of each URL with pages that just add to the count of my search. I want to know how many of the URLs of digital libraries exist in one search. for instance I want to know how many digital libraries are there in "ac.ir" domain. my search string will be ("digital libraries" site:ac.ir). I don't know the formula for "search just the main pages".
IS SciVerse Scopus and Scopus Indexing are same? If not how to check wheather a journal SCiVerse Scopus indexed?
If so, which resources do you use, and for what language pairs? What have you learned or discovered works well for you?
Why would you search in a foreign language? Well, perhaps you need to find out about the latest news from a particular country's point of view? Or you might need to keep up with the latest developments in your professional area, but the resources are not available in your own native language. Or you might have a different case scenario? Please share.
I'm specifically looking for cross-language information retrieval tools (search engines, multilingual dictionaries, repositories, digital libraries, etc.) that you may have found particularly useful. In a broader sense, I'm interested in strategies to get around language barriers in information-seeking. Please share a link for a relevant technology, resource, research, and/or your experiences. Much obliged!
I'm interested in design of chemical libraries. Are there reliable programs for such a purpose? What's your suggestion and experiences particularly regarding free programs and drug-like molecules?
I am a PhD student and I want to know more softwares used by digital libraries. I know some like Greenstone, Digibis or Fedora, but I would like to know other relevant existing software.
Looking for an expert in digital libraries for a chat about the overall state of the art in the field about existing platforms, frameworks and standards for institutional and cross-institutional data management.
TC, that is the abbreviation for thin or terminal client, has been in use for more than a decade but I've got familiar with the technology about five years ago. From that time I've used three generations of the technology for different purposes. I believe that despite its drawbacks it has many promises for small and rural libraries in reducing the costs of maintenance, energy consumption, upgrade, viruses infection etc. Have you ever used it? What is your idea about it? What are the drawbacks?

I´m looking for information about search strategies in medicine databases like Medline, Embase, Cochrane Central in order to select information about one topic in a prefesional way.
Working without a physical library creates more opportunities than challenges. Is it time to start thinking less about technology and more about how to construct services for users of networked/digital/electronic information resources.
I work on a database of initials and ornaments (current 25.000 items digitized) that is also placed on the internet. I would like to contact researchers in this field to find out if we can combine our efforts.
According to me, the library is a library (with information and knowledge resources), whether it is attached to a school or college or a research organization. In fact a school library's readers/users need more efficient services compared to other libraries. Why do we continue to be complacent about the importance of School Libraries and children's information requirements? It is high time we need to strengthen school libraries and information centres, for a student well trained for information usage / browsing leads to better information users in other libraries.
We are collecting suggestions for planning the work of Tomsk State University Library. So, researchers point of view is very important.
Will people still want to have that physical meeting place even as more and more is available online; making it easier to access resources remotely? With so many items being available online and with some reference tools being so interactive, how will this affect the physical space that libraries are usually associated with?
Over one hundred years several of the researchers had developed a set of different expectations about the future of the librarianship, some of these expectations have been achieved but also others did not. I hope that people in this group who are interested in this topic cooperate with me to: (1) provide some of these expectations (2) define the analyzing method that had applied by these researchers to conclude these expectations.
Nowadays many websites claim themselves to be a DL (digital library). What are the specific criteria for a system to be a DL? For example, recently a website in Iran announced that it can find any paper in full text, but does not own any material itself. Is this a DL? On the other hand, there are DLs like ACM that provide papers for the clients in the same manner but has its own database.
I am research scholar working on development of information retrieval efficiency of digital libraries. I found many research article where ontologies had played important role in enhancing retrieval efficiency. But how to integrate ontologies in digital libraries and how can we evaluate them? Can anyone suggest this to me?
I have put together this list of the characteristics of a virtual library service. Is there anything missing? What would your top three be?
As we all know number of US govt. offices have been shutdown. Due to this, important web sites are either not functioning or not updating. We are frequent users of PubMed and other NCBI web sites. Our research heavily depends on these web sites, particularly on PubMed. I want to know from other users how much it is affecting their research. And whether they will upgrade all information when the PubMed Site will be up?
Starting a new R&D project in this domain in January 2014, I would be eager to know of ongoing projects, best practices, etc. Many thanks in advance for your answers.
I'm a Librarian and I would ask librarians and computer professionals if they have ever worked together in creating interfaces to access the information? Anyone have experience on working with terminology, semantics and ontology interdisciplinary? I'm going to write a thesis and I would like to know the opinion of those who have been active together to design systems and information retrieval that meet these characteristics. Why not to try and work together?
I am using Ubuntu from long back and now want to try cent OS for creating server for KOHA (i.e Library automation Software) but really don't know how good Cent OS is. Will KOHA effectively run on cent OS as it does with Ubuntu?
From the 1990s so many DLs have been designed and implemented around the world. According to T. Sarasevic, there have been a few projects on assessment of DLs. I am examining the literature for some evidences for and against Sarasevic's statement.
