  1. MyLibrary@NCState
    • Description: The text describes MyLibrary@NCState, an extensible implementation of a user-centered, customizable interface to a library's collection of information resources. The system integrates principles of librarianship with globably networked computing resources creating a dynamic, customer-driven front-end to any library's set of materials. It supports a framework for libraries to provide enhanced access to local and remote sets of data, information, and knowledge. At the same, it does not overwhelm its users with too much information because the users control exactly how much information is displayed to them at any given time. The system is active and not passive; direct human interaction, computer mediated guidance and communication technologies, as well as current awareness services all play indispensible roles in its implementation. The system is accessible to anybody at the following URL:

  6. MyLibrary: A digital library framework & toolkit
    • Description: This article describes a digital library framework and toolkit called MyLibrary. At its heart, MyLibrary is designed to create relationships between information resources and people. To this end, MyLibrary is made up of essentially four parts: 1) information resources, 2) patrons, 3) librarians, and 4) a set of locally-defined, institution-specific facet/term combinations interconnecting the first three. On another level, MyLibrary is a set of object-oriented Perl modules intended to read and write to a specifically shaped relational database. Used in conjunction with other computer applications and tools, MyLibrary provides a way to create and support digital library collections and services. Librarians and developers can use MyLibrary to create any number of digital library applications: full-text indexes to journal literature, a traditional library catalog complete with circulation, a database-driven website, an institutional repository, an image database, etc. The article describes each of these points in greater detail.
