The Digital Han Dynasty Project involves the reconstruction of Homer Dubs unpublished works on the
Han dynasty by scholars located in different locations, but linked digitally. The presentation will cover the hardware and software used, and the concrete “products” and associated spin-offs emerging during the course of this project.
A new digital library for medical students is established by digitizing analog slides from the personal teaching collection of the medical school faculty. More than 132,000 slides from 15 professors in medical school were collected and transformed into digital contents from July 2002 to 2004. Metadata of those slides were built by professors and medical students. An initial set of 57,000 slides is considered to have a reasonable quality of metadata and used for service now.
Seoul National University (SNU) Library has more than 20 digital collections including rare books, archives, music AOD and medical slides. This digital content is available as part of an integrated system (http://sdl.snu.ac.kr) within the library, as well as via six other websites that are open to the public. Two of the most popular components of the digital library system are the VOD of Academic Events (http://event.snu.ac.kr) and the Insect Collections (http://insect.snu.ac.kr).
Chinese culture has a long history of written records in paper form. There are at least 3 million Chinese rare books (published from 960 to 1911 A.D.) located in Mainland China and Taiwan, over 300,000 volumes in Europe and 900,000 volumes in the United States. Recently, libraries and commercial entities have initiated a massive digitization of Chinese publications. This calls for a ‘Digital Registry’ to record what has already been digitized, and what is going to be digitized, so that the technology and experience can be shared and the duplication of effort avoided.
Wuhan University Library is providing access to the invaluable content of hydropower resources in the form of a GIS digital map. Based on the specialty of data organization, display mode and retrieval strategy, this presentation will examine three areas related to digital maps.
