Abstract

The CINDI system is an assembly of inter-related subsystems, working together as a digital library for academic documents in the field of computer science. These subsystems include the CINDI Robot, which downloads scientific documents including theses, technical reports, FAQ's, academic papers and discussion groups, the CINDI Conference system and the CINDI Registration and Upload subsystem, where authors upload academic documents. In addition, there is the Gleaning subsystem that converts the non-PDF documents to PDF format and filters out the documents that are more appropriate, the Automatic Semantic Header Generator which locates information about the author, title, keywords, subject and abstract from the documents, and the CINDI Search subsystem which enables users to search for resources in the CINDI repository, This thesis is based on the techniques that were used for the integration of subsystems, which includes porting of the Document Converter from the Windows platform to Linux. Enhancements were made to the Registration and Upload subsystem to allow multiple file uploads and improvements were made to the Graphical User Interface. The CINDI Search subsystem was redesigned to improve functionality and its interface was made more user-friendly. We have also developed an Annotation subsystem allowing users to make comments on documents in the CINDI repository.
