How Science Web Sites are Leveraging DLESE Search Web Services to Extend Value to their Users
[Demo at JCDL 2006]
This demonstration illustrates the use of two search services offered by the Digital Library for Earth System Education (DLESE) and shows how they have been used to create customized discovery interfaces for library resources in science Web sites.
DLESE's search Web services and APIs to give their users the same search capability and access to the same repository of resources as that of the Digital Library for Earth System Education (DLESE). The process of incorporating DLESE search into a site is not complicated and is extremely flexible. It gives site users access to online resources beyond those offered on the site but that compliment the context of the Web environment in terms of subject matter, user groups and types of resources. This demonstration explores DLESE resources and shows some of the potential offered by the search Web services and APIs to place the DLESE collections at the finger tips of Web site visitors. We will demonstrate how the services and APIs are being used in real and potential cases that may inspire ideas for its use in your particular Web environment.
