Non-Visual Access to the Digital Library (NoVA): the use of the digital library interfaces by blind and visually impaired people, Centre for Research in Library and Information Management (CERLIM).
"The Nova project is concerned with countering the exclusion from access to information which can all too easily occur when individuals do not have so-called 'normal' vision. Our domain in this project is digital library services, and our concern is that all such services should, in their entirety, be as accessible to blind and visually impaired people as to anyone else...The overall objective of the Project was to develop understanding of serial searching in non-serial digital library environments, with particular reference to retrieval of information by blind and visually-impaired people."

Beyond Productivity: Information, Technology, Innovation, and Creativity, Committee on Information Technology and Creativity, National Research Council, The National Academies Press.
"Focused initially on interactions between computer science and other forms of science and engineering, the Computer Science and Telecommunications Board (CSTB) began in the mid-1900s to examine opportunities at the intersection of computing and the humanities and the arts. In 1997, it organized a workshop that illuminated the potential, as well as the practical challenges, of mining those opportunities and that led, eventually, to the project described in this report."

The XML Family of Technologies, Technology Watch Briefing 7, DigiCULT.
"The family of XML specifications is already vast and continually growing, and an in-depth analysis of the whole family would require a book-length coverage. This report does not aim to provide such a broad and detailed overview. The provenance and essentials of XML are outlined in brief, followed by a detailed look at the related technologies that are likely to be of the most interest and relevance to the cultural heritage community. The bulk of the report is devoted to real-life accounts of XML deployment in this sector, featuring case studies on the Pouce and COVAX projects, to name but two. These are followed by several sketches of potential future uses of the technology in areas including memory institutions and academic research. The report concludes with a brief series of recommendations on the demands that introducing XML related technologies may place on an institution's existing technical and staffing infrastructures."

Calls for Participation
Defining Evaluation Methodologies for Terabyte-Scale Collections, SIGIR 2003 Workshop, 1 August 2003, Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Call for Participation. The deadline for submissions is 2 June 2003.
"The goal of this workshop is to develop an evaluation methodology for terabyte-scale document collections. In particular, we will assume the existence of a collection of several hundred million web pages, and investigate methods for reliably evaluating retrieval tasks on such a collection. Search tasks currently evaluated using large web collections, such as known-item and high-precision searching, focus on the needs of the common web searcher but also arise from our inability to measure recall on very large collections. Good estimates of the total set of relevant documents are critical to the reliability and reusability of test collections as we now use them, but it would take hundreds of different systems, hundreds of relevance assessors, and years of effort to produce a terabyte-sized collection with completeness of judgements comparable to a typical TREC collection. Hence, new evaluation methodologies and ways of building test collections are needed to scale retrieval experiments to the next level."

Workshop on the Evaluation of Music Information Retrieval (MIR) Systems, SIGIR 2003 Workshop, 1 August 2003, Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Call for Participation. The deadline for submissions is 5 July 2003.
"We are looking for the submission of scholarly 'White Papers' or 'Position Papers'. These papers will be scholarly in the sense that they must conform to the standards of attribution and referencing generally accepted in the academic world. The 'White Paper' notion, however, does afford us latitude as to content. Your personal and professional expertise, experiences and judgements are explicitly be sought to help the MIR/MDL communities design and manage an ongoing framework for meaningful and rigorous MIR/MDL evaluation. As such, if you have an opinion or argument, either for, or against, a particular aspect of MIR/MDL evaluation and you can provide sufficient background information (i.e., supporting references) that will help clarify your opinion or argument, then I am almost certain that your submission will be accepted. Remember, the MIR/MDL research communities are multi-disciplinary and this fact should be taken into account as you present your opinions (i.e., provide pointers to background information so that non-subject experts can better appreciate your arguments and world-view)."
