... structure The mapping from a data structure to its implementation (which may be another data structure). Thus a date may be represented as a vector of three integers (with six permutations to choose from), directly as a string of characters, or, in more recent high-level languages, as a record with three selectors—day, month, and year. A good choice of storage structure permits an easy and efficient implementation of a given data structure...

...and topical, typically the pamphlets and duodecimos that contained current debates on politics and religion. The ephemeral nature of these books is indicated by the common practice of auctioning them or selling them by lottery to members at the end of each year. Lack of storage space may also account for these sales, but the value of many of the books was as short-lived as the controversies they contained. Noting the emphasis on institutional resources and public places where books were bought, read, and borrowed should not obscure the importance of...

...concentrated, long-term reading would take place by means of the conventional printed book or downloaded text’. In 2001 , Clifford Lynch of the Coalition for Networked Information offered his own definition of the e-book: ‘just a large structured collection of bits that can be transported on CD-ROM or other storage media or delivered over a network connection, and which is designed to be viewed on some combination of hardware and software ranging from dumb terminals to web browsers on personal computers to the new book reading appliances’. Lynch wondered...

...north for storage to a repository on Kanghwa Island. At the time of the second cutting of the Tripitaka blocks, between 1236 and 1251 , the Koryŏ court had fled from the invading Mongols, to take refuge on Kanghwa Island. By the late 14 th century, however, even Kanghwa Island was no longer secure against hostile forces. Pirate attacks endangered the security of the scriptures, and there was military unrest throughout the country. This led to the choice of the distant southern mountain fastness of the *Haeinsa Buddhist temple as a safe storage location...

...controllable process. For sheets made on the same machine or mould at different times, variations in furnish or process conditions can alter appearance significantly. For sheets made from the same batch, differences can also exist for legitimate reasons. Even more importantly, storage and treatment conditions can have a significant bearing on how a sheet looks: two identical sheets, subject to different handling, can appear quite dissimilar. To conclude, determining provenance is not an exact science. A great deal can be done to analyse paper as...

...knotted strings, was a form of writing in its own right ( see 1 ). In Mesoamerica, information was also recorded on long strips of paper (made of the bark of the amate tree, a variety of the genus Ficus ), agave fibres, or animal hides, which were folded like an accordion for storage and protected by wooden covers. These were the so-called codices ( see codex ) or pictorial MSS, for many the Americas’ first proper ‘books’, which must have existed at least since the Classical Period ( ad 3 rd –8 th centuries). Codices recorded astrological information,...
