MORE INFO:
The Vatican Library and Software AG have developed a web-based application
for managing manuscript metadata stored in native XML databases.

The application allows users to:
- create & modify XML metadata using templates
- upload metadata from other databases (e.g., MS Access)
- link from metadata to digital resources

The search engine supports Boolean operators, phrase searching, word
stemming, and browsing; it uses XQuery syntax and is Z39.50 compatible.

The application enriches Vatican Library OPAC search results by providing
simultaneous searching of manuscripts and other materials (printed books,
prints & drawings, coins & medals).

SPEAKER: Rob Cartolano

WHEN: Friday, November 18 ~ 10:30 AM-12:00 PM

WHERE: 203 Butler Library

MORE INFO:
Shares will increase the permanence of course data and will reduce its
"silo" effect by allowing content to be shared between courses,
instructors, and semesters.
