Brian F. Lavoie and Roger C. Schonfeld examine the largest single
source of cross-institutional bibliographic data available, and offer
a framework for future efforts to describe the universe of
print-book: How many titles does the system contain? What holding
patterns prevail, especially with regard to overlap and the incidence
of rare or unique materials? And what are some of the
characteristics, such as date of publication and language?

SMART SPACES Ramesh Singh, Preeti Bhargava, and Samta Kain, define
smart spaces as ordinary environments equipped with visual and audio
sensing systems, pervasive devices, sensors, and networks that can
perceive and react to people, sense ongoing human activities and
respond to them. Their ubiquity is evident by the fact that various
state of the art smart spaces have been incorporated in all
situations of our life. These smart space elements require
middleware, standards and interfacing technologies to manage complex
interactions between them. Here, we present an overview of the
technologies integrated to build Smart Spaces, review the various
scenarios in which Smart Spaces have been incorporated by
researchers, highlight the requirements of software
infrastructure for programming and networking them, and mention the
contemporary frameworks for interaction with them. Singh is Senior
Technical Director, National Informatics Center,New Delhi, India.
Bhargava and Kain are students.
