Copyright, Digital Media, and Libraries

Date: 1991
Creator: Halbert, Martin
Description: This article discusses copyright, digital media, and libraries. Librarians are ostensibly supposed to be experts on the proper use of the collections of information they administer. This column is devoted to a brief bibliography on the subject of copyright and digital media. The author had never considered many of the issues raised in the sources reviewed below and thinks they will be of interest to all librarians who have added any kind of digital media (e.g., software and CD-ROM databases) to their collections.

Hypermedia, Interactive Multimedia, and Virtual Realities

Hypermedia, Interactive Multimedia, and Virtual Realities

Date: 1990
Creator: Halbert, Martin
Description: This article discusses hypermedia, interactive multimedia, and virtual realities. No one knows what the landscape of information technology in the 21st century will look like, but there are many sources that will sketch the most prominent features. This column will direct the reader to the best "guidebooks" to new interactive computer technologies like hypermedia and virtual reality simulations. In the spirit of Recursive Reviews, the author won't try to limit the discussion artificially to "just" hypermedia, or "just" interactive multimedia. Instead, the aim will be to point out: (1) practical sources that orient the reader to the newest computer media technologies, and (2) new journals that discuss the possibilities of the media.

Organization of Long-Term Interstellar Distributed Digital Preservation Networks

Organization of Long-Term Interstellar Distributed Digital Preservation Networks

Date: October 1, 2011
Creator: Halbert, Martin
Description: This presentation discusses the organization of long-term interstellar distributed digital preservation networks. Data will likely be a core product of interstellar missions. Technology for transmission of information over interstellar distances is relatively well understood (Project Cyclops, etc.). Long term (centuries) management of large growing public bodies of information is both more and less understood. This presentation discusses what we can learn from current efforts to develop long term strategies for digital preservation.

Findings from the MetaScholar Projects: AmericanSouth and MetaArchive

Findings from the MetaScholar Projects: AmericanSouth and MetaArchive

Date: October 24, 2003
Creator: Halbert, Martin
Description: This article summarizes major findings of the MetaArchive and AmericanSouth projects, two of the seven projects of the 2001 Mellon Metadata Harvesting Initiative. This article will not deal with the activities undertaken in these projects, or the decision to conjoin the two projects to form the MetaScholar Initiative, as this information has been reported in detail elsewhere. [Halbert, 2003] Nor will it recount the already public motivations of the Mellon Foundation in funding these and other projects. [Waters, 2001] What will be reported are the general motivations that led to undertaking the MetaArchive and AmericanSouth projects, the questions that the projects set out to answer, and what findings were reached, both expected and unexpected.
