This new edition of Digital Preservation in Libraries, Archives, and Museums is the most current, complete guide to digital preservation available today. For administrators and practitioners alike, the information in this book is presented readably, focusing on management issues and best practices. Although this book addresses technology, it is not solely focused on technology. After all, technology changes and digital preservation is aimed for the long term. This is not a how-to book giving step-by-step processes for certain materials in a given kind of system. Instead, it addresses a broad group of resources that could be housed in any number of digital preservation systems. Finally, this book is about “things (not technology; not how-to; not theory) I wish I knew before I got started.” Digital preservation is concerned with the life cycle of the digital object in a robust and all-inclusive way. Many Europeans and some North Americans may refer to digital curation to mean the same thing, taking digital preservation to be the very limited steps and processes needed to insure access over the long term. The authors take digital preservation in the broadest sense of the term: looking at all aspects of curating and preserving digital content for long term access. The book is divided into four part: 1.Situating Digital Preservation, 2.Management Aspects, 3.Technology Aspects, and 4.Content-Related Aspects. Digital Preservation will answer questions that you might not have even known you had, leading to more successful digital preservation initiatives.

These proceedings collect papers presented at the 11th International Conference on Multimedia & Network Information Systems (MISSI 2018), held from 12 to 14 September 2018 in Wrocław, Poland. The keynote lectures, given by four outstanding scientists, are also included here. The Conference attracted a great number of scientists from across Europe and beyond, and hosted the 6th International Workshop on Computational Intelligence for Multimedia Understanding as well as four special sessions. The majority of the papers describe various artificial intelligence (AI) methods applied to multimedia and natural language (NL) processing; they address hot topics such as virtual and augmented reality, identity recognition, video summarization, intelligent audio processing, accessing multilingual information and opinions, video games, and innovations in Web technologies. Accordingly, the proceedings provide a cutting-edge update on work being pursued in the rapidly evolving field of Multimedia and Internet Information Systems.

The internet as a platform for facilitating human organization without the need for organizations has, through social media, created new challenges for cultural heritage institutions. Challenges include but are not limited to: how to manage copyright, ownership, orphan works, open data access to heritage representations and artefacts, crowdsourcing, cultural heritage amateurs, information as a commodity or information as public domain, sustainable preservation, attitudes towards openness and much more. Participatory Heritage uses a selection of international case studies to explore these issues and demonstrates that in order for personal and community-based documentation and artefacts to be preserved and included in social and collective histories, individuals and community groups need the technical and knowledge infrastructures of support that formal cultural institutions can provide. In other words, both groups need each other. Divided into three core sections, this book explores: - Participants in the preservation of cultural heritage; exploring heritage institutions and organizations, community archives and group - Challenges; including discussion of giving voices to communities, social inequality, digital archives, data and online sharing - Solutions; discussing open access and APIs, digital postcards, the case for collaboration, digital storytelling and co-designing heritage practice. Readership: This book will be useful reading for individuals working in cultural institutions such as libraries, museums, archives and historical societies. It will also be of interest to students taking library, archive and cultural heritage courses.

Internet marketing has become an important issue for many businesses around the world which have any form of commercial presence on the net. It is often perceived that doing business on the Internet mostly requires competency in the technology area. However as many dot com companies are failing due to lack of revenue generation, which could be induced by the inadequate marketing and marketing research, practitioners and scholars of e-commerce are keen to obtain a better understanding of the whole phenomenon of Internet marketing. To understand what's working as an Internet marketing strategy or tactic, one needs to conduct marketing research using rigorous statistical methodology.

The World Wide Web has become an extremely popular way of publishing and distributing electronic resources. Though the Web is rich with information, collecting and making sense of this data is difficult because it is rather unorganized. Building an Intelligent Web introduces students and professionals to the state-of-the art development of Web Intelligence techniques and teaches how to apply these techniques to develop the next generation of intelligent Web sites. Each chapter contains theoretical bases, which are also illustrated with the help of simple numeric examples, followed by practical implementation. Students will find Building an Intelligent Web to be an active and exciting introduction to advanced Web mining topics. Topics covered include Web Intelligence, Information Retrieval, Semantic Web, Classification and Association Rules, SQL, Database Theory, Applications to e-commerce and Bioinformatics, Clustering, Modeling Web Topology, and much more!

This new book takes a holistic view of information architecture to offer information professionals a vital critical analysis of library and information service architecture with discussion of methods, tools, techniques, and trends. The editors argue that library assessment literature has primarily dealt with performance measurement and change management strategies, leaving little on the ways of looking at the process architecture of library and information services and on methods for business process analysis. Information Systems: Process and practice aims to fill that gap with a combination of theory and supporting case studies, written by an international line-up of contributors. This book: discusses research and methods that help libraries and information services work from strategic business objectives through to the organisation of processes that support the information services offeredopens a new area of research/investigation on the link between information behaviour research and information systems and architecture, illustrated by case studies and projectsuses introductory sections and chapter commentary from the editors to draw the discussions together. This will be essential reading for researchers in Information Science, specifically in the areas of digital libraries, information architecture and information systems. It will also be useful for practitioners and students in these areas seeking to understand research issues and challenges and to discover how they have been handled in practice elsewhere.

Weiter nach den Regeln spielen oder endlich auch ein Stück vom Kuchen abbekommen? Vor dieser Entscheidung steht Tina Fontana, die als Assistentin für Robert Barlow, den übermächtigen CEO eines internationalen Medienkonglomerats, arbeitet. Ihr Gehalt reicht kaum für ein Leben in New York, geschweige denn dafür, ihren Studienkredit abzubezahlen. Nach sechs Jahren, in denen die 30-Jährige ihrem Boss Tische in Restaurants reserviert hat, die sie sich nicht leisten kann, und ihm Drinks aus Flaschen ausgeschenkt hat, die mehr als ihre Miete kosten, steckt ihre Karriere in einer Sackgasse. Ein Fehler bei der Spesenabrechnung eröffnet Tina die Chance, ihre Schulden auf einen Schlag zu tilgen. Eine Summe, die für sie die Welt bedeutet, für ihren Chef aber nur Taschengeld ist. Ihre Entscheidung setzt eine Kette von Ereignissen in Gang, die das Leben der vielen überqualifizierten und unterbezahlten jungen Frauen der Stadt verändern wird ...
