A library is a collection of analytical data like spectra, molecules,
text documents and related information as well as foreign application
data, which is inserted as it is. It is a mass storage device for your
data which can be easily accessed and where data is easily found.
Library and library
Some foreign file types use embedded libraries,
because they have to carry a lot of different information, which would
be very complicated to put it into a single binary file. Therefore, these
file types provide libraries as data files. Theses files are different
from libraries available here.
The software distinguishes multiple library types as described in the
Library on a database
This library type is server based and requires an additional high-end
database system installed somewhere on your system or network. Library
servers like Oracle, SQL-Server or Sybase are powerful and professional
database systems, often used in the industry. The software does not support
these systems by default. Additional adaption to your needs is necessary.
Please contact your
software provider for details and help.
This library type is based on MS-Access and will be automatically installed
together with the software. It provides default database functions for
up to 2 million data sets and about 2 GB database size on your local hard
disc or network drive.
Directory as library (virtual
This library type just points to a predefined directory on your hard
disc or network drive, where all files included in the directory will
be interpreted as contents of the virtual library. It is also possible
to include sub-directories below the defined root directory of the library.
