Investigating the interaction activities in digital libraries

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The increase in digitization of conventional books and other forms of print media suggests that digital or e-books are not a passing
phenomenon. Present day digital library systems may have transformed the conventional processes into digital environment, however little development work has been done for the
progression of traditional library business model in digital domain. Users of digital books want a more open environment where contents from different sources are made available seamlessly.
Interoperability at device level, sharing, and a possibility of a convenient and useful annotation system are also general expectations from the standard user prospective. Publishers also need a system with efficient process workflow for the
transformation of contents and its online availability. Besides the interoperability, the security and digital rights management is also a matter of concern for the digital content distributors.
We started off our efforts by establishing system to present digital books online with a possibility of simple links creation. This system is now being transformed into a modern form of digital library
where possibilities of enhanced interactions are made available to its users. In this paper we report on new user interaction scenarios added to the library system.
