Title:The Use and Effect of Multimedia Digital Libraries in a National Network
Author(s):Catlett, Charles E.; Terstriep, Jeffrey A.
Subject(s):Research libraries --United States --Automation

Abstract:The Internet has supported information archives for some time. These archives have traditionally allowed users to retrieve text and image data as well as software to their own computers for examination. As the Internet grows in scale and in performance and services, more sophisticated information archives and access modes are possible. This paper reviews the growth of the Internet with its current information archive services and proposes methods for providing interactive access to multimedia data. Various information types and their access modes are discussed in terms of their role in defining advanced digital library and network services. A prototype digital library system and user interface developed at the National Center for Supercomputing Applications is examined.
