The course LIS654, “Building Digital Librares”, was given by various adjunct instructors before being taken over by me, Thomas Krichel. Here is the list of editions.
Building a Digital Library. For that there are two editions
This course introduces students to the—still evolving—concepts of digital libraries. The core subject matter is repository building. Each student builds a public-access repository on the web. This will store born-digital or digitized materials. The course covers related technical material and organizational issues. Potential topics include digitization, the representation of text, file formats for media such as images and sound, identification strategies and technologies, metadata, markup languages, databases, contents delivery technologies, and repository implementation software.
