1.1 2000 Minimum Technical Requirements in effect
From: Cynthia Etkin firstname.lastname@example.org to various lists, September 2000.
New minimum technical requirements (MTR) for public workstations in Federal depository libraries will go into effect October 1, 2000. The proposal for new requirements and the Depository Library Council's recommendation to implement them was published in the May 1, 2000 issue of Administrative Notes http://www.access.gpo.gov/su_docs/fdlp/pubs/adnotes/ad050100.html
All Federal depository libraries must meet the MTR to keep pace with technological change in order to fulfill their Title 44 obligation to provide access to Government information products. The new requirements were originally issued as the 1999 Recommended Specifications for Public Access Workstations in Federal Depository Libraries in the June 15, 1999 Administrative Notes. Library Programs Service (LPS) will continue to issue Recommended Specifications for Public Access Workstations in Federal Depository Libraries (RS) each spring to assist depository library staff in planning for new computer purchases.
As another step in the transition to an e-FDLP and in accordance with Depository Library Council recommendations from its Spring 2000 meeting, a schedule was established to regularly increase workstation requirements. Fifteen months after issuance, RS will become MTR. The Requirements, the Recommended Specifications, and the schedule are all available from the FDLP Desktop at: http://www.access.gpo.gov/su_docs/fdlp/computers
Having a DVD drive is a major change included in the 1999 RS. At present the only DVD products distributed through the FDLP are from the Patent and Trademark Office. LPS has learned that the Census Bureau will be producing DVD products for distribution, the first of which will be the Census Tract Street Index.1.2 U.S. Geological Survey Updates

1.2.1 Subject: Commonwealth of Pennsylvania Land Cover Map
The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) has published a new map, Commonwealth of Pennsylvania Land Cover. This land cover map was produced in partnership with the Pennsylvania Bureau of Topographic and Geologic Survey, Department of Conservation and Natural Resources as part of the National Land Cover Characterization project. It was developed from a mosaic of 16 Landsat Thematic Mapper scenes, recorded primarily during the summer months of 1986-1993. Elevation data, population density data, and National Wetlands Inventory data were used to refine the land cover classification. Water bodies were derived from 1:100,000-scale Digital Line Graphs.
The National Land Cover Characterization project is part of the interagency Multi-Resolution Land Characterization initiative involving the USGS, The Environmental Protection Agency, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, and the U.S. Forest Service. Twenty-one classes of land cover are mapped, using consistent procedures for the entire United States. The resulting National Land Cover Data (NLCD), from which the Pennsylvania map was derived, will be used for applications such as watershed management, environmental inventories, transportation modeling, fire risk assessment, and land management. More information on NLCD development and data availability is posted at: http://edcwww.cr.usgs.gov/programs/lccp/nationallandcover.html
The NLCD for Pennsylvania is available from the Pennsylvania State Data clearinghouse at http://www.pasda.psu.edu

1.4 Study of General Material Designations in the twenty-first century
From: Cathy Moulder email@example.com to various lists, September 2000.
Online Audiovisual Catalogers Inc. has awarded its Research Grant to Jean Weihs for a study of general material designations in the twenty-first century. It may be that general material designations are slowly becoming more problematic as technology develops new formats and ways of manipulating information. Convergence, the buzzword of the computer industry, is revolutionizing the way knowledge is delivered and blurring the lines between storage medium and data format. Are the general material designations now used to identify different formats in our public catalogues still useful today and will they continue to be useful in the future?
Weihs invites all technical services and public services staff to visit the website at: http://www.modpublishing.com/Survey/GMDSurvey.htm to find out more about this survey and to register their opinions and comments. (Please note that this URL is case-sensitive.) If you prefer to send comments by fax or mail, there is a print version that can be accessed from this website.
The survey will be available until April 30, 2001.

2.2.3 Study concerning emulation to preserve digital documents.
From: Jan Smits firstname.lastname@example.org to various lists, September 2000.
The Koninklijke Bibliotheek (Royal Library, National Library of The Netherlands) has commissioned Jeff Rothenberg of Rand-Europe to write a study concerning emulation to preserve digital documents. This study is full text and available as a pdf-file at: http://www.kb.nl/kb/pr/fonds/emulation/usingemulation.pdf (134 Kb). You can also order hard-copies :
Using emulation to preserve digital documents / Jeff Rothenberg. - Den Haag : Koninklijke Bibliotheek, 2000. - 70 p. ; 21 cm. ISBN 906259145-0.

This report considers the problem of how to preserve digital documents, given the fact that their formats quickly become obsolete, as do the programs that originally interpreted those formats and the computers on which those programs ran. This problem is investigated from the perspective of the deposit library community, though the issues and solutions discussed here also apply more broadly to the full range of digital data, documents, records, and other artifacts that are used by other kinds of libraries, archives, government agencies, commercial organizations, and individuals. The report attempts to identify and illuminate the root of this problem and, more specifically, discusses the theoretical and practical issues involved in using emulation as a way of preserving authentic, accessible, usable digital documents.

- The Harvard Map Collection is pleased to announce the opening of its current exhibit: A House Divided: Maps of the Civil War.The central focus of the exhibition will be thirty five Civil War period maps including maps presented to the Library by the Military Order of the Loyal Legion of the United States (MOLLUS).
The Civil War map collection at Harvard included approximately 1,000 maps, in both manuscript and printed form, including an unusual isometric drawing of the Gettysburg Battlefield published in 1863, less than six months after the battle, by John Bachelder of Boston. Other highlights include a manuscript map of the Topsail Sound area in North Carolina, another manuscript outlining Lee's retreat to Appomattox, and a common 1859 map of Charleston Harbor made uncommon by the several pasted on Boston newspaper clippings describing Civil War actions.
Many of the maps were the property of Charles Loring, a Harvard graduate, and an aide to General Ambrose Burnside, a longtime commander of the Union IX Corps. Manuscript maps used during Burnside's time are included and some very significant moments for the Union Army are displayed in these maps, such as the battle of Cold Harbor.
The exhibit will run from September 15, 2000 through March 1, 2001 in the Map Gallery of Pusey Library in Harvard Yard. Selected images from the exhibit are also available for viewing on the Harvard Map Collection webpage http://www.hcl.harvard.edu/maps/civilwar With the exception of University holidays the exhibit is available for viewing Monday-Friday from 9 am - 5 pm.

- The Washington Map Society (WMS) announces the fall 2000 schedule of meetings.All meetings are open to WMS members and non-members alike, without charge. We encourage and welcome all to attend.
On Thursday, September 28 at 7 PM, Ira S. Lourie will present A.J. Johnson, Publisher, and his United States Atlas Maps. After describing the history of Alvin Jewett Johnson and his work in the late 1850's to 1880's, Dr. Lourie will describe the practice at that time of selling atlases by subscription and Johnson's possible special relationship with Colton. While it is easy to date maps that are bound in atlases with a date on the cover page, Dr. Lourie has been able to document detailed descriptions of every state of each of Johnson's US maps, and thus been able to date loose, unbound maps. After a demonstration of the technique he has devised, the audience will be put to the test - can they date Johnson maps based on Dr. Lourie's methods?
On Thursday October 26 at 7 PM, Mr. David Ingram, Licensed Land Surveyor, will present Survey and Resurvey of the Fairfax Line. In 1649 King Charles started something that continues to this very day. At that time he granted to his friends a parcel of land in Virginia described as all the land between the Rappahanock and Potomoc Rivers. Approximately 100 years after that, surveys were completed and maps drawn that delineated the extent of this land grant. Now, approximately 350 years after the grant, surveyors are using modern technology to evaluate the work of the surveyors and good old fashioned detective work to try to find the beginning and ending point of the survey. This presentation will offer a historical review of the events, a presentation of several appropriate maps, and a review of recent survey work.
On Saturday November 4, there will be a FIELD TRIP to the Office of Archaeology, City of Alexandria. Meeting time is 10 AM at Room 327, the Torpedo Factory Art Center, 105 North Union Street. The staff makes extensive use of old maps in their work. They use the early surveys of the town's origins, rely on Civil War maps a lot due their contours, and also use those contours to project where native American sites would probably have been, so that they can improve their probability of success instead of digging blind. We will be given an orientation on the staff's work and their use of maps, seeing those they use, and, if weather permits, proceed outside with a George Washington map to see how the town has changed since his survey. If you plan to attend, please advise Tom Sander at 703-426-2880 or e-mail email@example.com
On Thursday November 16 at 7 PM, Mr. Jack Dangermond, Environmental Systems Research Institute, Inc [ESRI] will present The Evolution of Geography and GIS: What It Means. ESRI's first commercial Geographic Information System (GIS) GIS product, ArcInfo, was launched in 1981. Originally designed to run on minicomputers, ArcInfo offered the first modern GIS efficiently integrated into a single system. ESRI became the first company to launch GIS on the World Wide Web with the introduction of ArcIMS in 2000. Mr. Dangermond, ESRI's Founder and President, will present a brief history of his company, describe how GIS has developed in the past 20 years, and tell us what GIS can do for us now and in the future. GIS is poised for even greater future growth. Innovations in computer technology now allow sophisticated GIS operations to be performed on the desktop. Faster and cheaper computers, network processing, electronic data publishing, and improved easier-to-use GIS technology are fueling rapid growth in the desktop area. Private businesses are adopting GIS technology as a decision support tool. The intricacies of Global Positioning System technology can be harnessed with GIS software. And with the introduction of live mapping applications to the World Wide Web, anyone with a computer has access to the benefits of GIS technology.
On Thursday December 7 at 7 PM, a panel of speakers from the National Imagery and Mapping Agency (NIMA), the successor agency to the Defense Mapping Agency, will present a discussion of NIMA's Role in the Dayton Peace Accords. The signing of the Dayton Accords in December 1995 ended 43 months of war in Bosnia and Herzegovina. The intense negotiations in Dayton made extensive use of state-of-the-art mapping of the contested terrain. Our speakers were on the NIMA team that supported the negotiations.
All meetings (except the field trip) will be held at the Reading Room, Geography and Map Division, Basement level, Library of Congress, Madison Building, 101 Independence Avenue, S.E., Washington D.C. For further information, contact Tom Sander, program chairman, at 703-426-2880, or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org

3.2 Upcoming International Conferences, Seminars, Talks, etc.
- Geo-data Browser Project Workshop and Geo-Crosswalk Project Workshop. EDINA and the History Data Service are seeking additional participants for two 1-day workshops to be held on the Monday 23rd and Tuesday 24th October 2000 at Wivenhoe House Hotel, University of Essex, Colchester. If you would like to put your name on the list of potential participants, please send your name, title, organization, and other contact information, along with a statement of your interest in the topic of either or both of the workshops to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The workshops are part of the requirements generation stage of two feasibility studies. The first is into the provision of a Z39.50 compliant geo-data portal and metadata browser for UK HE and FE as part of the Distributed National Electronic Resource (DNER). This project is a 10-month project. The second feasibility study is into the provision of a British and Irish Gazetteer Service. The project, called Geo-Crosswalk, is a 6-month project.
Both projects are collaborative between EDINA, based at the Data Library, University of Edinburgh and the History Data Service, based at the Data Archive. The projects are funded by the UK Joint Information Systems Committee (JISC). MIMAS and the Archaeological Data Service are assisting on the projects.
Geo-data Browser Project Workshop Increasing amounts of geo-data are being created within UK HE and demand for access is growing within academia. However, two major barriers confront the potential user of geo-data resources: first, how to find out what geo-data exist given the high scale, diversity and complexity of data available; second, having located it, how to ascertain its quality and suitability for use. The solution to overcoming these barriers, which will be investigated by this project, is to provide comprehensive, standardised metadata, available via a geo-data browser, which in turn will form the core of a geo-data portal for UK HE. A geo-data browser would provide researchers and teaching staff with a way of identifying what geo-data exists within UK HE. It is hoped that the resulting service would form a node of the National Geo-spatial Data Framework (NGDF) Gateway http://www.ngdf.org.uk/
The workshop is designed to bring together individuals within HE who are generators of geo-data, providers of geo-data services, or potential users of a geo-data portal and browser. We are looking for individuals who can contribute to discussions about how both the portal and browser might best be developed. The primary objectives of the workshop are to identify the scope, needs and general requirements of a geo-data portal, to then focus on the specific requirements of a geo-data browser and to inform the future work of the project in designing, populating and implementing the system. It is hoped that a representative of the NGDF will be present to talk about the NGDF Gateway.
Geo-Crosswalk Project Workshop a gazetteer service (server) would assist metadata creators by providing a processing engine for converting geographic names to a standard spatial coding scheme. It would parse metadata records to identify geographic names (current and historical), and convert them into geographic footprints expressed in a standard spatial coding scheme such as latitude and longitude or the Ordnance Survey National Grid. A gazetteer service would also make it possible for information retrieval systems to support a full range of geographic search options without holding vast amounts of geo-spatial data. It provides the ability to use geography to refine searches for resources with the DNER. The workshop is designed to bring together individuals with an interest in gazetteers, gazetteer servers or those who might be interested in gaining access to a gazetteer server to add a spatial search component to an existing information service. We are looking for individuals who can contribute to discussions about how this gazetteer service might best be developed. The primary objective of the workshop is to identify the scope and requirements of such a service.
