Mediterranean Costal Marine Environment Digital Library
Actually this project focuses upon
marine biology, marine microbiology, oceanography and marine chemistry applied
to marine pollution monitoring documents preserved at the Istituto
Talassografico “A.Cerruti” (IAMC-CNR, Taranto, Italy).
This DL provides bibliographic
information, full-text documents, including many types of documents: technical
reports, proceedings, pre-prints, theses, published documents (taking into
account the actual copyright legislation), analytical data, bibliographies,
Hosted by the Server at the
Information Science and Technologies Institute (ISTI) of the National Research
Council (CNR) in Pisa, MeCME-DL is a “personalized” edition of the system ETRDL
(ERCIM Technical Reference Digital Library).
The system is based upon RFC
1807 metadata (Dublin Core mapping) and Dienst Protocol. The new Digital
Library Service System “Open Dlib”. developed by ISTI-CNR, is going to
substitute this system.
remarkable for its subject content, having three-fold semantic descriptors
(free key-words, ASFA thesaurus, LC classification) and allowing information
search and retrieval by different types of users, specialized in marine
biology, oceanography and environmental pollution monitoring.
MECME has been built following the example and prototype pattern of the Vallisneri Library. Its main frame as a self publishing digital library has been based upon
LVDL -LAGUNA DI VENEZIA DIGITAL LIBRARY, which covers up similar fields of interest.
