Part 2 The 5 S Model: A Formal Model for the Digital Library
Motivation • DLs are not benefiting from formal theories as have other CS fields: DB, IR, PL, etc. • DL construction: difficult, ad-hoc, lacking support for tailoring/customization • Conceptual modeling, requirements analysis, and methodological approaches are rarely supported in DL development. • Lack of specific DL models, formalisms, languages
5 S Layers Societies Scenarios Spaces Structures Streams
Definition: Digital Libraries are complex systems that • • • help satisfy info needs of users (societies) provide info services (scenarios) organize info in usable ways (structures) present info in usable ways (spaces) communicate info with users (streams)
DL Student Research: Gonçalves • 5 S as a basis for developing digital libraries • Theory • Syntax, Semantics; Definitions, Relationships • Specification of requirements • Generation of systems • Quality

5 SLGen: Automatic DL Generation
MARIAN DL Generation Component Pool 5 SL Design XML PARSERS: DOM, SAX MARIAN API MARIAN Digital Library Generator Class managers Indexing Classes Loader User interfaces Resource Manager Configuration and Processing Classes
Challenges with Approach • The designer should know the 5 S theory very well and be very familiar with the syntax and semantics of 5 SL to be able to write correct 5 SL files. • It is difficult to get the big picture of a digital library just from a textual 5 SL file.
5 SGraph: A DL Modeling Tool (Qinwei Zhu MS Thesis) • Overall objective of 5 SGraph: Help users model their own instances of a digital library (DL) in the 5 S language (5 SL). A simple modeling process which enables rapid generation of digital libraries is needed. • • Support non-expert users. Speed-up development process. Increase the quality of final product.
Goals of 5 SGraph • To help digital library designers understand the 5 S model quickly and easily • To help digital library designers build their own digital libraries without difficulty • To help digital library designers transform their models into 5 SL files automatically • To help digital library designers understand, maintain, and upgrade existing digital library models conveniently
5 SGraph How does 5 SGraph work? • 5 SGraph loads and displays a metamodel in a structured toolbox. • The structured editor of 5 SGraph provides a topdown visual environment for the DL designer. • 5 SGraph produces correct 5 SL files according to the visual model built by the designer.
Overview of 5 SGraph Workspace (instance model) Structured toolbox (metamodel)
Overview of 5 SGraph(cont. ) • Structured toolbox • Show the available concepts in metamodel and the relationships between those concepts. • Visualize the Metamodel • Concepts in structured toolbox can be added into workspace. • Workspace • Visualize the model • The place where the user creates his/her model.
Visualization Features • The structured toolbox • Visualization of the metamodel • Visual components that can be added • Truncated display of trees • Node-link representation • Deep-node problem • Icons • Type/Instance relationship • Cardinality
Component Reuse • Components can be loaded/saved. • Load and save sub-trees • Component reuse saves time and effort. • Full reuse from component pool • Partial reuse: adapting components
Functionalities of 5 SGraph • • Load/Close a metamodel Load/Save/Close a model Explore the structure of metamodel/model Add concepts from metamodel to model Delete concepts from model Change the properties of concepts Load/Save a existing concept Specifying inter-model constraints
Load/Save/Close a model
Explore the structure of metamodel and model
Add a concept to user model • Top-down: Before you want to add a concept, make sure you have added its parent. • You can only add a concept to its parent node • Make sure the parent node is chosen before you add a new concept. • If the highlight color is blue, the concept has satisfied all the requirements and can be added. • If the highlight color is yellow, click the parent node in workspace and then add the concept.
Add a concept to user model(cont. ) • Double-click the concept in toolbox or • Right-click and choose the item in the popup menu

Delete a concept • If the concept has no child concepts, click the concept first, then press “Delete” key. • If the concept has child concepts, delete the child concept first, and then delete this concept.

Semantic Constraints • There are inherent semantic constraints in the hierarchical structure of the 5 S model. • 5 SGraph maintains the constraints and enforces these constraints over the instance model to ensure correctness.
Example 1 (Constraint Enforcement) • An actor can only participate in the services that have been defined in the Scenario Model.
Example 2 (Constraint Enforcement) • A catalog has descriptive metadata for digital objects in a specific collection. • Therefore, a catalog must have a 1: 1 relationship with an existing collection. • Thus, a catalog is not independent.
The Preliminary Test of 5 SGraph • Research Questions • Does the tool help users understand use the 5 S model to build their own digital libraries? • Does the tool help users efficiently describe digital library models in the 5 SL language? • Are users satisfied with the tool?
The Preliminary Test of 5 SGraph: Experimental Design • Three tasks 1. Build a simple digital library using existing components. 2. Complete the partial model for CITIDEL. 3. Build a model for NDLTD from scratch. • Three measures • Effectiveness • Efficiency • User satisfaction • 17 subjects
Measures • Effectiveness • • Completion rate Goal achievement • Efficiency • • Task completion time Closeness to expertise: minimum task time divided by task time • Satisfaction • Subjective rating
Test Results Task 1 Task 2 Task 3 Completion Rate (%) 100 100 Mean Task Time (min) 11. 3 11. 4 15. 1 Mean Closeness to Expertise 0. 483 0. 752 0. 712 Mean Goal Achievement (%) 97. 4 98. 2
Satisfaction and Usefulness • The average rating of user satisfaction is 91%. • The average rating of usefulness of the tool is 92%. • Statistical analysis shows that the mean value of post-understanding of the 5 S model is significantly greater than that of preunderstanding.
Semantic Modeling of Digital Library with Concept Maps • Customized “plugin” tool to model scenarios and societies • Tools with common principles, abstractions, graphical notations, and operations • Solution: Concepts Maps • Conceptual tools for organizing knowledge and representation
Conclusions • Presented a domain specific visual modeling tool for DLs. • Evaluated the tool and proved efficiency, effectiveness, and learnability. • Built new tools based on concept maps for scenario and societies modeling.
Future work on 5 SGraph • Integration of tools • Further usability studies with “digital librarians” • Usiing the tools as educational aids for teaching about digital libraries
Motivating Problems – Toward 5 SLGen (MS Thesis of Rohit Kelapure) • Lack of general models for Digital Libraries (DLs) • Little focus on simplifying the process of modeling and building DLs • Divergent DL architectures • • Monolithic: Tightly integrated and generally inflexible Componentized: A network of interoperable components aggregated without a design methodology
Problems (contd. ) • Lack of DL-specific modeling languages, software toolkits, prototyping and CASE tools • Lack of a scenario-based requirements analysis and design approach to DLs • Implication: Problems with • Interoperability • Customizability
Approach • Based on the formal 5 S theory • Streams, Structures, Spaces, Scenarios and Societies • Use of • Domain-specific declarative languages (5 SL) • Scenario-based requirements analysis and design • Componentized architectures • Automatic transformations/mappings from models to code • Special attention paid to issues of flexibility, reusability, and extensibility
Approach: 5 SLGen • 5 SLGen is a new generic digital library generator. • It has been developed, implemented, and deployed in several applications. • 5 SLGen yields implementations of digital library services from models of DL “societies” and “scenarios” (and from the other “Ss”).

Conclusion • Introduced a scenario-based approach to the generation of componentized DLs • Applied the 5 SFramework for generation of DLs • Partially validated theory of 5 S • Demonstrated that complex DLs can be built on the basis of a formal theory • Adherence to open standards (OAI-PMH, ODL, XMI, UML) and established design patterns (MVC, GOF’s State) ensures relevance and extensibility of our work.
