Changes in editor’s and administrator’s application

First attachements contains description of dLibra objects’ properties (e.g. properties of publication, directory, edition), second attachement contains description of operations corresponding to dLibra objects (e.g.”Add new publication..” operation which corresponds to directory).
- “PCSS dLibra” group in “Start” menu When editor and administrator application is starting “PCSS dLibra” group is created in “Start->Programs” menu(to create this group in menu user has to approve it). “PCSS dLibra” group contains links to dLibra forum, dLibra project home page, user’s guide and link which starts editor and administrator application. Besides, on the desktop a shortcut to run editor and administrator application is created.
- Language for object description is chosen using tabs In dLibra 3.0, language in which we describe an element (edition, collection) is chosen by selecting tab which corresponds to language (see the image above).
- Default metadata language In dLibra 3.0 bibliographic description (metadata) can be provided in so called universal language – it is aspecial metadata language. Attribute values from universal language are added to attribute values from other languages when presenting the metadata on WWW pages. For example, values of Format attribute is in version 3.0 automatically filled for universal language, therefore the value is present in other languages (in Format attribute) when presenting the metadata on WWW pages.
- Changes in editor application
- Editor program configuration has a new option In dLibra 3.0 a new option has been added – “Automatically add main file’s format to imported metadata”. When this option is selected then metadata are filled with main file’s format after import operation (metadata for universal language are updated – attribute which has Format role).
- Bibliographic description import In dLibra 3.0 the way of metadata import has been changes. In this version we import metadata using “Import…” button on “Metadata import/export” panel. This panel in placed on the bibliographic description panel (see the image below). When the “Import…” button is pressed import metadata window pops up: Metadata can be imported from file (“File” option – then we choose file from data carrier) or we can give WWW addres to a file (“URL (WWW address)” option). In addition we may specify metadata file format (“Format” listbox). If we choose “Determine automatically” then application will try automatically discover metadata file format. In order to import metadata press “Import” button. By default, in dLibra 3.0 there are mechanism to import metadata from MARC communication 21, XML (MASTER, RDF) and BibTeX format.
- Bibliographic description export In dLibra 3.0 the way of metadata export has been changes. In this version we export metadata using “Export…” button on “Metadata import/export” panel. This panel in placed on the bibliographic description panel (see the image below). When the “Export…” button is pressed export metadata window pops up: Metadata can be exported to file. In addition we may specify metadata file format (“Format” listbox). By default, in dLibra 3.0 ther is mechanism to export metadata to RDF format.
