The New Zealand Digital Library Project

People
African Digital Library Centre
Southern Alberta Digital Library Centre

The New Zealand Digital Library project is a research programme at The University of Waikato whose aim is to develop the underlying technology for digital libraries and make it available publicly so that others can use it to create their own collections.

Our web site provides several document collections, including historical documents, humanitarian and development information, computer science technical reports and bibliographies, literary works, and magazines. All are available over the Web, and can be accessed through searching and browsing interfaces provided by the Greenstone digital library software. Behind the query interface lies a huge collection providing gigabytes of information. We hope you find what you want, or at least something intriguing!

The Greenstone Digital Library software provides a way of organizing information and making it available over the Internet or on CD-ROM. It is open-source software, available under the terms of the Gnu public license.

A digital library is made up of a set of collections. Each collection of information comprises several (typically several thousand, or even several million) documents, which share a uniform searching and browsing interface. Collections can be organized in many different ways while retaining a strong family resemblance.

The goal of our research program is to explore the potential of internet-based digital libraries. Our vision is to develop systems that automatically impose structure on anarchic, uncatalogued, distributed repositories of information, thereby providing information consumers with effective tools to locate what they need and to peruse it conveniently and comfortably.

Project members are actively working on techniques for creating, managing, and and mainatining collections; extracting metadata from legacy documents; analysing library usage and user needs; Maori, Arabic and Chinese language systems; internationalising the library interface; optical music recognition and musical collections; novel interfaces for formulating queries and visualising results; novel interfaces for browsing metadata; text mining for keyphrases, acronyms, and other metadata; keyphrase extraction and phrase-based browsing; and other research topics.

Kia papapounamu te moana

kia hora te marino,
kia tere te karohirohi,
kia papapounamu te moana

may peace and calmness surround you,
may you reside in the warmth of a summer's haze,
may the ocean of your travels be as smooth as the polished greenstone.

绿宝石数字图书馆软件

Greenstone是一种产于新西兰的绿宝石(就像这套软件)。在传统的毛利社会中,它是在所有物质中最珍贵和最受欢迎的。它可以吸收和保留wairua,一种精神或生命力,且赋有传统美德的特性使它成为公共领域数字图书馆计划的徽章。它的光泽代表慈善;它的通透代表诚实;它的坚硬代表勇气;它所能承受的利刃代表正义。绿宝石数字图书馆软件标志中雕刻的patu或打击的棍棒是我们这个计划中一位成员的传家宝。在徒手战斗中它的表现是非常快速,精确和完整的。我们希望我们的软件也拥有这些特质,patu那剃刀似的锋利边缘象征着技术的前缘。
