Project Description

digilib is a digital library system. We intend on using one of the standard ones: Eprints, GreenStone, or Dspace to provide the underlying functionality. In the mean time, we are using kbfs and some custom scripts.

It provides services to many useful systems. This includes clear, Ebooks, and Textbook Knowledge Formation.

It provides software which searches online sources of the book before we scan it, which also calculates, based on perceived utility of the book, whether it should be scanned, or if it can be found for cheaper (Gutenberg, ACM, etc.). Included in this calculation for instance is the cost of the book if we are to destroy it. This will all relate to the purchasing end of the project. That end is what I should be working on right now.

As with all project systems and data, it uses the license management system to ensure full compliance with legal obligations.

Capabilities

  • Figure out why digilib-lookup-text doesn't get art-and-science-robotic
  • fix digilib-lookup-text
  • Create emacs keys for searching digilib
  • Create a digilib interface for FCMS.
  • Figure out why inform7 mode is loading for pdfs from: /var/lib/myfrdcsa/codebases/internal/digilib/data/collections/conferences/data/tac/2010/www.nist.gov/tac/publications/2010/participant.papers
  • Write an interface for clear that allows you to download books through digilib from various sources, like Wikipedia and Gutenberg
  • Develop a function for loading a book into Emacs from digilib
  • for digilib recommendations, look at http://www.goodreads.com
  • Figure out what is wrong with clear, why it wouldn't read something like the bible even though there was no voy: RESPONSE: myfrdcsa/codebases/internal/digilib/data/gutapp/kjv10.txt > No More Documents
  • digilib should serve books and papers, and we can link to them if they are free.
  • For digilib, we can use Amazon, and perl modules for it, to search for book titles, and then search the networks.
  • Can include speed reading using hopify as part of digilib.
  • digilib should use paracite or paratools.
  • digilib should serve books and papers, and we can link to them if they are free.
  • The internet should serve as our digilib and digilib should simply store massive amounts of links to works, for instance, using DMOZ.org.
  • Could probably stand to compress digilib contents.
  • digilib should use Google Scholar
  • digilib needs to be shored up.
  • Figure out what is wrong with clear, why it wouldn't read something like the bible even though there was no voy: RESPONSE: myfrdcsa/codebases/internal/digilib/data/gutapp/kjv10.txt > No More Documents
  • This thing I've made for Sorcerer sure looks useful, it is being used in Sorcerer, broker, should be used in job-search, and could be used in busroute, clear, corpus, critic, cso, digilib, and verber.
  • all code should reference appropriate documentation in digilib.
  • digilib: figure out why http://www.scribd.com is not displaying
  • digilib: http://www.opentextbook.org/about/
  • if digilib acts as a peer to peer system, that could have possibilities.
  • perhaps digilib could work with Citeseer, and also, was thinking that you could ask where a term was first seen, or where it is used, etc.
  • digilib should check out http://library.n0i.net/
  • digilib should control the readlist results?
