The seminar explores selected advanced topics relating to "digital
libraries" with special emphasis on:
- Access to networked resources
- Use of two or more resources in conjunction
- Combined use of two or more retrieval systems (e.g. use of pre- or
post-processing to enhance the capabilities)
- The redesign of library services.
Also it is expected that these issues will require attention to a
number of questions about the nature of information retrieval
processes, the feasibility of not-yet-conventional techniques,
techniques of making different systems work together, and the
reconsideration of past practices.
More generally, the seminar is intended to provide a forum for
advanced students in the School. Anyone interested in these topics is
welcome to join in -- and to talk about their own work. This is a
continuation of the previous Lynch / Buckland seminars. e.g.
