14 Matthias Kaun | CrossAsia | CEAL - Chicago 2009 eGovernment-Archiv CrossAsia - Result

15 Matthias Kaun | CrossAsia | CEAL - Chicago 2009 Building search applications with lucene and nutch 1.We inject a set of URLs into the web database (crawldb). 2.We fetch the web pages: 1. To fetch, we first generate a fetch-list from the database. This generates a fetch- list in a new segment. 2. Now we run the fetcher on this segment. 3. We have to update the database with the results of the fetch. 3.Now we can build a new index of resources catalogued in the Online Guide East Asia.

16 Matthias Kaun | CrossAsia | CEAL - Chicago 2009 OGEA and Search Engine technology

17 Matthias Kaun | CrossAsia | CEAL - Chicago 2009 CrossAsia Questions Do we need to or did we already reinvent the wheel? We all know the Asian Studies WWW VL, the Internet Guide for Chinese Studies or the Portal to Asian Internet Resources etc.? Will we be able to continue our work to create new records into the central system or do we have to stop when the funding has been expired? Is it a good idea to archive non-permanent material and how can we solve the copyright issue? Is this work in google/rss/Twitter/del.icio.us etc-times really necessary?

18 Matthias Kaun | CrossAsia | CEAL - Chicago 2009 Outlook Printed monographs, series, and newspapers with access to it via interlibrary-loan services Access to our own digitised collection which will start in summer 2009 (visible in 2010 with 2,5 Million pages in 2012) Electronic databases like full-text databases, fact databases, E-journals, EBooks, full-text statistics, which are subject to licence with access for German users Information of other subject collections and projects like resources from the National Library of China and National Central in Taibei, National Diet Library in Japan, or activities in for example Laos National Library (to be continued) Special Subject Information (OGEA to be continued) Archiving web-resources (started )
