- operate ADAM (Aleph Digital Asset Management) as part of Aleph
- prepare storage space for catalogue enhancement
ADAM is available to the NEBIS libraries for recording/registering primary digital items (text, image and audio files) and presenting them in the NEBIS catalogue. Moreover ADAM can be used to display scanned-in title pages and lists of contents of documents, i.e. to enhance/expand the catalogue. To enhance the catalogue, besides the manual method where each library scans the contents lists etc. themselves and uploads them using ADAM, there is also a semi-automated method offered by the ZB for the network libraries. For this the NVZ offers the function of placing a research scan job via the scanning interface. The text items are to be indexed and made searchable for research.
