Abstract

E-Book Ingest Module at the National and University Library in Zagreb

Continuing its mission to collect and preserve national publishing production, the National and University Library in Zagreb (NSK) has been developing a digital library system (D-book system) for all types of monographic publications available in digital form (born digital and digitised books, digital audio books and born digital book PDF print masters). Management of e-books in libraries raises several issues like: definition of the e-book in library and publishing sector, infrastructure development and access (technical and legal issues). The National and University Library in Zagreb is obliged to collect and preserve electronic publications (including online resources) due to legal deposit requirements (Library Law, 1997). The development of digital library infrastructure started with the establishment of Web resources repository (Croatian Web Archive - HAW) in 2004 and continued with the building of other specialised systems for management of digital serials (2009), dissertations (2010) and e-books (2012). This paper presents the Library's activities in the building of a new ingest module for digital content producers. The following functionalities are described: metadata creation, ingest of digital objects, preservation and access policy. Based on this project, the Library plans to continue fostering the cooperation with Croatian publishers by means of setting up the entire metadata/content delivery process including the assignment of identifiers, cataloguing in publication and born digital book PDF print masters preservation.
