How Open Source Software Can Improve the Library -

Your school had one, and that's probably where you spent most of your library time. If it wasn't your school, then it was probably your local town or city library. Some of these libraries may have been tiny little holes in the wall with just a few thousand books while others were huge university libraries with 10,000 of books, magazines, newspapers, cd, microfiche, and more. The depth a library can have can range greatly; it all depends on how much money that library gets in funding. The big college libraries obviously get the most due to the fact that they are part of an actual business model that produces a significant amount of money. Healthy People Library Project.

Infrared cleaning is a technique used by some film scanners and flatbed scanners to reduce or remove the effect of dust and scratches upon the finished scan.

Infrared cleaning

It works by collecting an additional infrared channel from the scan at the same position and resolution as the three visible color channels (red, green, and blue). The infrared channel, in combination with the other channels, is used to detect the location of scratches and dust. Once located, those defects can be corrected by scaling or replaced by inpainting.

Innovative Interfaces: Trusted Library Technology and Services. Home - American Library Association. MCLS - Midwest Collaborative for Library Services. Libraries. IMLS Library Statistics - Overview. The President’s Budget Request for 2008 included funds for the Institute of Museum and Library Services to administer the Public Library Survey and the State Library Agency Survey, effective October 1, 2007. From its inception in 1989 though 2007, these two surveys were administered by the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES). In anticipation of congressional appropriation, The National Center for Education Statistics and the Institute of Museum and Library Services are working cooperatively to implement this policy.

The Institute is pleased to provide this important service. Current, accurate and ongoing collection of library data is an essential foundation for quality library services in the United States. The Institute is committed to the continued excellence of this program. Standard Generalized Markup Language (SGML) SGML and XML as (Meta-) Markup Languages Both SGML and XML are "meta" languages because they are used for defining markup languages. A markup language defined using SGML or XML has a specific vocabulary (labels for elements and attributes) and a declared syntax (grammar defining the hierarchy and other features).

Conceived notionally in the 1960s - 1970s, the Standard Generalized Markup Language (SGML, ISO 8879:1986) gave birth to a profile/subset called the Extensible Markup Language (XML), published as a W3C Recommendation in 1998. Depending upon your perspective and requirements, the differences between SGML and XML are inconsequential or immense. EAD (Encoded Archival Description) Help Pages. Mission Statement The EAD Roundtable of the Society of American Archivists is intended to promote the implementation and use of encoding standards for dissemination of archival information. To this end, we aim to provide tools and information for use in encoding archival descriptions; discuss and facilitate the use of software for markup, parsing, indexing, and delivery; and monitor and contribute to encoding standard development for archival description. Background Following the creation of EAD Listserv in 1996 and the launch of the official EAD website by Library of Congress in 1996, members of the Society of American Archivists identified the need for a group to handle the more informal aspects of EAD implementation.

A petition to create a Roundtable in late 1997 was approved by the Council of the Society of American Archivists. Recent News & Announcements.
