Components of an NSDL Architecture: Technical Scope and Functional Model

  title={Components of an NSDL Architecture: Technical Scope and Functional Model},
  author={David Fulker and Greg Jan{\'e}e},
ABSTRACT We describe work leading toward specification of a technical architecture for the National Science, Mathematics, Engineering, and Technology Education Digital Library (NSDL). This includes a technical scope and a functional model, with some elaboration on the particularly rich set of library services that NSDL is expected eventually to encompass. Keywords Digital library, architecture, scope, functional model, library content, library service, metadata INTRODUCTION The National Science…

Building a Semantic-Web Portal Using Frame-based System ∗

In this paper we report employing frame-based system as the basis to build up a ontology-based portal. The basic idea is to transform the ontology schema and instances collected from various digital



The Social Life of Information

It is argued that the gap between digerati hype and enduser gloom is largely due to the "tunnel vision" that information-driven technologies breed, and the authors need to look beyond their obsession with information and individuals to include the critical social networks of which these are always a part.
