Free Software and Cooperation as a Course for Development of Czech Librarianship
Jansa, Václav ; Nič, Miloslav (advisor) ; Dvořák, Jan (referee) ; Sklenák, Vilém (referee)
The dissertation focuses on the use of free software in Czech libraries. Both real practice and librarians' attitudes to this type of software are analyzed. The main goal of the dissertation has been to evaluate the attitudes of Czech libraries to free software, to analyze its use in practice, to design information and communications strategy for free software project and to implement it using Evergreen as an example project. In order to achieve the goals, both qualitative and quantitative research methods have been used. These included a survey, web data gathering and analysis and also case studies. The devised and implemented information and communications strategy consists of eight main parts (setting up a local community, creating communication tools, organizing seminars, Czech localization, the creation of first common catalogues, making documentation publicly available, active involvement in the international community and establishing a legal entity to improve awareness about free software among librarians) which are complemented with a SWOT analysis evaluating the strategy implementation.
Digital Images Production and Quality Control
Vychodil, Bedřich ; Souček, Jiří (advisor) ; Sklenák, Vilém (referee) ; Nič, Miloslav (referee)
(EN) This dissertation provides a broad understanding of fundamental terminology and an inside view of the digitization workflow and quality control processes. The main foci are on quality assurance during and outside the digitization processes and identification of the most suitable format for access, long term preservation, rendering and reformatting issues. An analysis of selected digitization centers is also included. An application called DIFFER (Determinator of Image File Format propERties) and subsequently The Image Data Validator - DIFFER has been developed using results from previously conducted research. The application utilizes new methods and technologies to help accelerate the whole processing and quality control. The goal was to develop a quality control application for a select group of relevant still image file formats capable of performing identification, characterization, validation and visual/mathematical comparison integrated into an operational digital preservation framework. This application comes with a well-structured graphic user interface, which helps the end user to understand the relationships between various file format properties, detect visual and non visual errors and simplify decision-making. Additional comprehensive annexes, describing the most crucial still image...
Citing scientific literature using an XML format
Jansová, Linda ; Nič, Miloslav (advisor) ; Souček, Martin (referee) ; Strossa, Petr (referee)
The dissertation focuses on the use of XML for citation purposes. First, a current situation in citation practice, deeply influenced by the development in electronic publishing, is described. Then selected projects aimed at making citation data machine understandable and ways to include citation data into XML formats are presented. Citation formats (both XML and other formats) are dealt with in detail. This part is followed by a brief introduction of citation managers as tools used to automate work with citation data. Typology of cited documents is also covered. Furthermore, a detailed analysis of citation practice in IUPAC color books is included. Based on partial findings recommended practices for the inclusion of citation data into XML formats were developed. The recommended practices are a set of seven principles which can be summed up as follows: use of UTF-8 encoding, low number of elements and attributes, maximum data structuring, use of controlled vocabularies, data hierarchy and use of links to make connections, use of existing document typology or creation of a new one, use of recursion while working with the data. An experimental format based on the recommended practices has been designed. Citation data from IUPAC color books are used to present the way how the format can be implemented in practice.

Polythematic structured subject heading system
Skolková, Linda ; Nič, Miloslav (advisor) ; Pálka, Peter (referee)
The Master's thesis is focused on the Polythematic Structured Subject Heading System, an indexing language created at the State Technical Library and used for document indexing and retrieval both in this library and in other institutions. The objective of the thesis is to evaluate the history of the subject heading system and suggest ways how it can be further developed. First of all the history of the subject heading system is described, both in the context of indexing and classification of documents in the State Technical Library and trends in knowledge organization in general. Then the current situation of the system is analyzed both from the formal and factual point of view. Tools used for the maintenance and presentation of the system are highlighted. The thesis also includes the description of relevant processes and suggests ways how to optimize the processes. Updating, maintenance and marketing are especially emphasized. The possibilities to use modern information and communication technologies for the further development of the subject heading system are described in detail. Authority files, markup languages and on-line library catalogues are included in the analysis. A draft of a new development policy for the system and new maintenance and indexing rules are also part of the thesis.
Methods of information retrieval from scientific databases aimed at chemistry
Šmídová, Lucie ; Nič, Miloslav (advisor) ; Boček, Bohumil (referee)
Diplomová práce pojednává o metodách vyhledávání v chemických databázích. Soustředí se na rešeršní strategie používané v chemii, věnuje se odlišnostem chemických informací a tudíž i vyhledávacích postupů. Součástí je i návrh typologie chemických informací. Předkládá obecné postupy pro vyhledávání zejména faktografických informací, na základě identifikace látky a také informací o reakcích. Tyto postupy jsou pak testovány v praktické části na databázích Chemical Abstracts (a související databáze v prostředí SciFinder Scholar), Beilstein (resp. Gmelin, v prostředí Crossfire Commander) a PubChem.
Utilizing RELAX NG Schemas in XML Editors
Schmied, Martin ; Kosek, Jiří (advisor) ; Nič, Miloslav (referee)
This thesis explores the possibilities of utilizing RELAX NG schemata in the process of editing XML documents. The ultimate goal of this thesis is to prototype a system supporting user while editing XML document with bound RELAX NG schema inside the Eclipse IDE. Such a system comprises two major components -- an integration of RELAX NG validator and an autocompletion engine. Design of the autocompletion engine represents the main contribution of this thesis, because similar systems are almost exclusively implemented in closed-source commercial editors as of 2009. The first chapter is a brief introduction into XML while emphasizing XML schema languages. A comparison is of three major schema languages -- DTD, W3C XML Schema and RELAX NG. Furthermore, options of exploiting information from schema by the XML editor are discussed. In the end of the chapter an overview of basic RELAX NG patterns used throughout this thesis is given. The second chapter describes implementation of the autocompletion engine. It reasons about appropriate in-memory representation of the XML documents and RELAX NG schemas and presents basic principles of pattern-inference for individual elements. The main output of the chapter is an algorithm proposal for generating possible completions based on given XML document nodes and RELAX NG schema of the document. The goal of the final third chapter is integrating RELAX NG validator and the autocompletion engine inside the Eclipse IDE. It starts by describing two basic aspects of Eclipse Platform -- the OSGi Service Platform dynamic module system and the extension point mechanism. Then the implementation of individual plug-ins and their integration with existing XML editing infrastructure is described.
Compound XML documents
Nálevka, Petr ; Kosek, Jiří (advisor) ; Nič, Miloslav (referee)
Tato práce se zabývá různými charakteristikami komponovaných dokumentů a ukazuje potencionální výhody využití takových dokumentů v prostředí dnešního Webu. Hlavní pozornost je soustředěna na problémy spojené s validací komponovaných dokumentů. Práce zkoumá různé přístupy k řešení těchto problémů. Validační metoda NVDL (Namespace-based Validation Dispatching Language) je popsána detailně. Tato práce popisuje hlavní principy NVDL, zkoumá výhody a nevýhody oproti jiným přístupům a představuje JNVDL. JNVDL je kompletní implementace specifikace NVDL, která byla napsána v jazyce Java jako součást této práce. Popsány jsou nejen technické prvky implementace, ale JNVDL je představeno i z uživatelské perspektivy. Pro ověření využitelnosti bylo JNVDL integrováno do existujícího projektu pro validaci webových dokumentů s názvem Relaxed, aby jednoduše zpřístupnilo validaci komponovaných dokumentů autorům webového obsahu.
