I am happy and proud to announce the availability of the newest
version of the MyLibrary manual called Designing, Implementing, and
Maintaining Digital Library Services and Collections with MyLibrary.
See:

   http://dewey.library.nd.edu/mylibrary/manual/

Code4Liber's will enjoy it because the principles it puts forth can
be applied to many digital library settings. OSS4Libers' will enjoy
it because it puts into practice "free" software as well as open
access publishing. Perl4Liber's will enjoy it because it is pure
Perl. Beginning Perl scripters may benefit most from the tutorial.
Something for everyone.


About the book and who should read it

The book is a manual, and its purpose is to outline the principles
and processes necessary to implement digital library collections and
services. It uses MyLibrary as an example but the principles and
processes can be applied to just about any digital library system or
application.

The manual is intended to be read by administrators who need to know
what and how many resources to allocate to a digital library. It is
intended to be read by librarians who are responsible for collecting
and organizing content as well as ensuring the library's usability.
The manual is intended to be read by systems administrators who are
in charge of providing the technical infrastructure for the system.
Last but not least, it is intended for programers who will use the
underlying Perl API to provide services against the collection.


What the book contains and who helped write it

The book's 200+ pages is distributed in two volumes and freely
available in HTML and PDF formats. Co-written by seventeen excellent
authors, the book elaborates upon digital library topics including
information architecture, content standards, user-centered design,
fundamental computer technologies, techniques for initial
implementation & ongoing maintenance, and of course the MyLibrary
Perl application programmer's interface. Here is an outline of the
book's contents:
