CS 5244 - Digital Libraries
NUS SoC, 2006/2007, Semester I
We will have a short, 30-minute or so orientation meeting on the 8th. If you cannot make it, just review the slides in IVLE. The first four weeks will focus on building a digital library and will be reinforced by a practical homework assignment. The remaining lectures will focus on using digital libraries.
I will be away from the 3-9 October, so I'm rescheduling the class one day earlier on Monday (venue to be announced). Hari Raya Puasa falls on our lecture day so we have one fewer lecture as a result.
The lecture notes here are not as complete as those in IVLE. You should use the ones in IVLE if possible. Any questions about this information should be directed to the general forum on IVLE. Supplemental readings are marked with a "*".
The hyperlinks here all work as of Fri Jul 14 14:35:52 GMT-8 2006, when I updated this page. Use a search engine with the appropriate text if the links below stop working.
