An Extensible Framework For Creating Personal Archives Of Web Resources Requiring Authentication, Matthew Ryan Kelly Jul 2012

An Extensible Framework For Creating Personal Archives Of Web Resources Requiring Authentication, Matthew Ryan Kelly

Computer Science Theses & Dissertations

The key factors for the success of the World Wide Web are its large size and the lack of a centralized control over its contents. In recent years, many advances have been made in preserving web content but much of this content (namely, social media content) was not archived, or still to this day is not being archived,for various reasons. Tools built to accomplish this frequently break because of the dynamic structure of social media websites. Because many social media websites exhibit a commonality in hierarchy of the content, it would be worthwhile to setup a means to reference ...


Integrating Preservation Functions Into The Web Server, Joan A. Smith Jul 2008

Integrating Preservation Functions Into The Web Server, Joan A. Smith

Computer Science Theses & Dissertations

Digital preservation of theWorldWideWeb poses unique challenges, different fromthe preservation issues facing professional Digital Libraries. The complete list of a website’s resources cannot be cited with confidence, and the descriptive metadata available for the resources is so minimal that it is sometimes insufficient for a browser to recognize. In short, the Web suffers from a counting problem and a representation problem. Refreshing the bits, migrating from an obsolete file format to a newer format, and other classic digital preservation problems also affect the Web. As digital collections devise solutions to these problems, the Web will also benefit. But the ...


Online Multimedia Communication System, Yin-Wei Yang Jan 2005

Online Multimedia Communication System, Yin-Wei Yang

Theses Digitization Project

Online Multimedia Communication System is a project aimed at providing people the ability to store and share their multimedia files. The users and administrator can modify and view the files and database information from a normal web browser. Furthermore, this site offers a secure environment to keep all the users' information private.


Object Persistence And Availability In Digital Libraries, Michael L. Nelson, B. Danette Allen Jan 2002

Object Persistence And Availability In Digital Libraries, Michael L. Nelson, B. Danette Allen

Computer Science Faculty Publications

We have studied object persistence and availability of 1,000 digital library (DL) objects. Twenty World Wide Web accessible DLs were chosen and from each DL, 50 objects were chosen at random. A script checked the availability of each object three times a week for just over 1 year for a total of 161 data samples. During this time span, we found 31 objects (3% of the total) that appear to no longer be available: 24 from PubMed Central, 5 from IDEAS, 1 from CogPrints, and 1 from ETD.

Buckets: Smart Objects For Digital Libraries, Michael L. Nelson Jan 2001

Buckets: Smart Objects For Digital Libraries, Michael L. Nelson

Computer Science Faculty Publications

Current discussion of digital libraries (DLs) is often dominated by the merits of the respective storage, search and retrieval functionality of archives, repositories, search engines, search interfaces and database systems. While these technologies are necessary for information management, the information content is more important than the systems used for its storage and retrieval. Digital information should have the same long-term survivability prospects as traditional hardcopy information and should be protected to the extent possible from evolving search engine technologies and vendor vagaries in database management systems. Information content and information retrieval systems should progress on independent paths and make limited ...


A Digital Library For The National Advisory Committee For Aeronautics, Michael L. Nelson Jan 1999

A Digital Library For The National Advisory Committee For Aeronautics, Michael L. Nelson

Computer Science Faculty Publications

We describe the digital library (DL) for the National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics (NACA), the NACA Technical Report Server (NACATRS). The predecessor organization for the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), NACA existed from 1915 until 1958. The primary manifestation of NACA's research was the NACA report series. We describe the process of converting this collection of reports to digital format and making it available on the World Wide Web (WWW) and is a node in the NASA Technical Report Server (NTRS). We describe the current state of the project, the resulting DL technology developed from the project, and ...


Student Database Access From The Web, Prashanthi Sundaram Jan 1998

Student Database Access From The Web, Prashanthi Sundaram

Theses Digitization Project

This project, Database Access through the Web (DAW), implements a database to store academic and general information of graduate students in the Department of Computer Science, CSUSB and provides access to the database from the web. The motivation of the project comes from needs of the Graduate Coordinator, professors and department staff to access through the Internet student information concurrently.


Lyceum: A Multi-Protocol Digital Library Gateway, Ming-Hokng Maa, Michael L. Nelson, Sandra L. Esler Jan 1997

Lyceum: A Multi-Protocol Digital Library Gateway, Ming-Hokng Maa, Michael L. Nelson, Sandra L. Esler

Computer Science Faculty Publications

Lyceum is a prototype scalable query gateway that provides a logically central interface to multi-protocol and physically distributed, digital libraries of scientific and technical information. Lyceum processes queries to multiple syntactically distinct search engines used by various distributed information servers from a single logically central interface without modification of the remote search engines. A working prototype (http://www.larc.nasa.gov/lyceum/) demonstrates the capabilities, potentials, and advantages of this type of meta-search engine by providing access to over 50 servers covering over 20 disciplines.


A Strategy For Electronic Dissemination Of Nasa Langley Technical Publications, Donna G. Roper, Mary K. Mccaskill, Scott D. Holland, Joanne L. Walsh, Michael L. Nelson, Susan L. Adkins, Manjula Y. Ambur, Bryan A. Campbell Jan 1994

A Strategy For Electronic Dissemination Of Nasa Langley Technical Publications, Donna G. Roper, Mary K. Mccaskill, Scott D. Holland, Joanne L. Walsh, Michael L. Nelson, Susan L. Adkins, Manjula Y. Ambur, Bryan A. Campbell

Computer Science Faculty Publications

To demonstrate NASA Langley Research Center's relevance and to transfer technology to external customers in a timely and efficient manner, Langley has formed a working group to study and recommend a course of action for the electronic dissemination of technical reports (EDTR). The working group identified electronic report requirements (e.g., accessibility, file format, search requirements) of customers in U.S. industry through numerous site visits and personal contacts. Internal surveys were also used to determine commonalities in document preparation methods. From these surveys, a set of requirements for an electronic dissemination system was developed. Two candidate systems were ...


World Wide Web Implementation Of The Langley Technical Report Server, Michael L. Nelson, Gretchen L. Gottlich, David J. Bianco Jan 1994

World Wide Web Implementation Of The Langley Technical Report Server, Michael L. Nelson, Gretchen L. Gottlich, David J. Bianco

Computer Science Faculty Publications

On January 14, 1993, NASA Langley Research Center (LaRC) made approximately 130 formal, 'unclassified, unlimited' technical reports available via the anonymous FTP Langley Technical Report Server (LTRS). LaRC was the first organization to provide a significant number of aerospace technical reports for open electronic dissemination. LTRS has been successful in its first 18 months of operation, with over 11,000 reports distributed and has helped lay the foundation for electronic document distribution for NASA. The availability of World Wide Web (WWW) technology has revolutionized the Internet-based information community. This paper describes the transition of LTRS from a centralized FTP site ...
