Complex implementations might integrate equally well with enterprise-wide systems such as courseware and portals on a university campus, and desktop file storage on private individual computers.</p> <p><a href="http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue40/chudnov" target="_blank">read more</a></p> issue40 feature article daniel chudnov jennifer weintraub jeremy frumkin matthew wilcox raymond yee amazon d-lib magazine google harvard university ims information today massachusetts institute of technology oclc open knowledge initiative oregon state university university of california berkeley yale university archives authentication bibliographic data blog cataloguing collection development content packaging database digital library framework higher education ims content packaging metadata mets personalisation portal repositories research search technology shibboleth software standards technorati uportal url web resources Thu, 29 Jul 2004 23:00:00 +0000 editor 1050 at http://www.ariadne.ac.uk Rights Management and Digital Library Requirements http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue40/coyle <div class="field field-type-text field-field-teaser-article"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><a href="/issue40/coyle#author1">Karen Coyle</a> describes some aspects of rights expression languages favoured by the commercial content industries and how these may differ from the rights needs of digital libraries.</p> </div> </div> </div> <p>It is common to hear members of the digital library community debating the relative merits of the two most common rights expression languages (RELs) - the Open Digital Rights Language (ODRL) and the rights language developed for the Motion Picture Expert Group (MPEG) and recently adopted by the International Organization for Standardization [<a href="#1">1</a>] - and which is preferable for digital library systems.</p> <p><a href="http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue40/coyle" target="_blank">read more</a></p> issue40 feature article karen coyle iso library of congress microsoft mpeg oasis romeo access control adobe algorithm archives copyright data digital archive digital library dissemination drm dublin core ebook framework intellectual property interoperability licence metadata mets multimedia odrl open access operating system privacy provenance research resource management schema software standardisation standards taxonomy Thu, 29 Jul 2004 23:00:00 +0000 editor 1051 at http://www.ariadne.ac.uk An Introduction to the Search/Retrieve URL Service (SRU) http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue40/morgan <div class="field field-type-text field-field-teaser-article"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><a href="/issue40/morgan#author1">Eric Lease Morgan</a> describes sibling Web Service protocols designed to define a standard form for Internet search queries as well as the structure of the responses.</p> </div> </div> </div> <p>This article is an introduction to the "brother and sister" Web Service protocols named Search/Retrieve Web Service (SRW) and Search/Retrieve URL Service (SRU) with an emphasis on the later.
