Greenstone Digital Library Software

Greenstone Digital Library Software
Greenstone is a suite of software for building and distributing digital library collections. It provides a new way of organizing information and publishing it on the Internet or on CD-ROM. Greenstone is produced by the New Zealand Digital Library Project at the University of Waikato, and developed and distributed in cooperation with UNESCO and the Human Info NGO. It is open-source, multilingual software, issued under the terms of the GNU General Public License. Read the Greenstone Factsheet for more information. The aim of the Greenstone software is to empower users, particularly in universities, libraries, and other public service institutions, to build their own digital libraries.

Opciones de código abierto para la educación by Mark Johnson on 13 January 2013, last updated Introduction This document presents options for open source software for use in the education sector. Some of these may have uses outside of education, but they are presented here in the context of their specific benefits to educational establishments, or their use in the course of teaching and learning. The document is intended to complement the UK Cabinet Office’s Open Source Options document, which is presented as part of its Open Source Procurement Toolkit in recognition that open source software is underused across the public sector.

Open Source Digital Asset Management (DAM) Software Reviews In this article, we introduce the main open source DAM solutions that are currently available (16 at the latest count). Most products mentioned here are primarily web based. In some cases desktop clients may also be provided as an alternative mode of interaction also. Based on feedback received, we have recently changed the order of the products so that pure web DAM systems are shown first, followed by ECM suites and then preservation oriented solutions. In determining which products are suitable to have the description Open Source applied, we have assessed each vendor to identify if they use a licence that is OSI approved as the main criteria for inclusion.

Visualización avanzada para las Humanidades: A Thousand Words Purpose Visualization uses computers to find patterns and make connections that normally cannot be seen. This project will develop the software tools, skills, and knowledge base to allow humanities researchers to use visualization - specifically on high-resolution displays powered by supercomputers – to perform novel research. Overview The tools that are currently available for visualization on high-resolution displays are primarily targeted at scientists, and because of that, the tools can be complicated and ill suited to the needs of humanities scholars.

Visualising Urban Geographies Visualising Urban Geographies is a project that provides mapping tools for historians. It enables them to use digitized and geo-referenced maps in conjunction with historical information based on either addresses or districts. This spatial dimension enriches historical understanding and analysis, and can also be applied to other subject areas. The focus on Edinburgh is deliberate: to explore the potential of the mapping tools where there is available data and a wide range of suitable maps. Digital asset management Digital asset management (DAM) consists of management tasks and decisions surrounding the ingestion, annotation, cataloguing, storage, retrieval and distribution of digital assets.[1] Digital photographs, animations, videos and music exemplify the target areas of media asset management (a sub-category of DAM). Digital asset management systems (DAMS) include computer software and hardware systems that aid in the process of digital asset management.

About our Map images In our 'Map images' resource you can access and view over 86,000 maps as high-resolution, colour, zoomable images. The maps date between 1560 and 1961 and relate primarily to Scotland. We also have maps of areas beyond Scotland, including maps of England and Great Britain, Ireland, and Belgium. Find by Place The easiest way of finding material relating to any particular location is to find by place. Search using a map of Scotland, by place name, or by county and parish name. About DHCommons, an initiative of centerNet, is an online hub focused on matching digital humanities projects seeking assistance with scholars interested in project collaboration. This hub responds to a pressing and demonstrable need for a project-collaborator matching service that will allow scholars interested in DH to enter the field by joining an existing project as well as make existing projects more sustainable by drawing in new, well-matched participants. Additionally, DHCommons helps break down the siloization of an emerging field by connecting collaborators across institutions, a particularly acute need for solo practitioners and those without access to a digital humanities center.

La CUNY Digital Humanities Guía de recursos - CUNY Commons Académico From CUNY Academic Commons Welcome to the CUNY Digital Humanities Resource Guide, a collaboratively produced introduction to the field of Digital Humanities. The guide is a project of the CUNY Digital Humanities Initiative (DHI), a new working group aimed at building connections and community among those at CUNY who are – or would like to be – applying digital technologies to research and pedagogy in the humanities.
