Exploring small screen digital library access with the Greenstone Digital Library. (English) Zbl 1017.68602
Agosti, Maristella (ed.) et al., Research and advanced technology for digital libraries. 6th European conference, ECDL 2002, Rome, Italy, September 16-18, 2002. Proceedings. Berlin: Springer. Lect. Notes Comput. Sci. 2458, 583-596 (2002).
Summary: In recent years, the use of small screen devices has multiplied rapidly. This paper covers a number of different issues which arise when digital libraries are used in combination with such displays. Known limitations of small screens are presented to the Digital Library community. Two evaluations of pilot small-screen DL systems are presented, with some unexpected cultural and socio-technical concerns which arose. The pilot systems also demonstrate the delivery of small-screen access using an existing popular DL system.
