Los Angeles Public Library
When the Los Angeles Public Library decided to place its special collections on the Internet, they chose DB/Text® Interactive WebPublisher.
Because DB/Text Interactive WebPublisher provides librarians and archivists with the perfect way to manage and disseminate diverse types of data – text, multimedia and images – via the Web.
DB/Text Interactive WebPublisher powers Los Angeles’ "Electronic Neighborhood"
In a sense, DB/Text® Interactive WebPublisher allows Matthew Mattson, the Photo Imaging and Database Consultant for the Los Angeles Public Library, to be in 67 places at once.
"One of the things we really liked about DB/Text Interactive WebPublisher was that you can create and edit records through a Web browser with a server," said Mattson. "It’s a big consideration when you are so spread out.
"Otherwise, I would have to go to all 67 branches of the Los Angeles Public Library to install the software. That could take a year."
DB/Text Interactive WebPublisher is one of the key building blocks of the Los Angeles Public Library’s "Electronic Neighborhood", a one-stop resource for information on California and regional history topics.
DB/Text Interactive WebPublisher supplies the infrastructure for this special collection, making it possible for them to share indexes and visual resources previously only available to individuals actually visiting the library. DB/Text Interactive WebPublisher also allows the Electronic Neighborhood to provide valuable links to other regional history and informational Web sites.
"DB/Text Interactive WebPublisher has been a real
asset in helping us bring our special collections to the Web,"
said Mattson. "It has all the right characteristics to help us
get the job done."
