ABSTRACT
E-content management and its delivery in digital library system are still at a nascent stage. Here a simple and easy-to-implement technique for e-content management and delivery of the digital collections, which are mainly derived from the paper-based documents, old as well as rare books, was reported. At first, the non-text region (mainly the four margins) of a book-page was discarded and the obvious noise occurred during the scanning process was removed through a simple noise cleaning technique. As an outcome, a considerable amount of storage space was saved in the digital library server, and the web requests were served in better speed than expected. Keeping in mind the digital preservation aspects, the techniques were developed in such a way that margins of the pages could be computed according to the choice of the reader, and the reader can easily put the margin size to view the actual text according to one's need. Obviously, the document will be rewritten in a new form after noise removal algorithm. As a test case, the proposed technique was applied in a moderately large library of Visva-Bharati University, having almost seven laces of books of many variants. The obtained e-content was placed in the library's own server and was tested in the campus network. It was observed that pages were accessed from the user end with reasonable speed, which can satisfy the general user ignore about the technique.
