DILIGENT objectives Develop a Digital Library Test-bed Infrastructure that will allow members of dynamic DILIGENT objectives Develop a Digital Library Test-bed Infrastructure that will allow members of dynamic virtual research organizations to create on-demand transient digital libraries based on shared computing, storage, multimedia, multi-type content and application resources “Digital libraries are not ends in themselves; rather they are enabling technologies for digital asset management, electronic commerce, electronic publishing, teaching and learning, and other activities. ” Fourth DELOS Workshop, Budapest, 2002 16 February 2006 ICTP/INFM Workshop on Porting Scientific Application on Computational Grids Pag 12

DL definition • The Digital Library is: • The collection of services • And DL definition • The Digital Library is: • The collection of services • And the collection of information objects • That support users in dealing with information objects • And the organization and presentation of those objects • Available directly or indirectly • Via electronic/digital means. • (Dlib WG – 1998) 16 February 2006 ICTP/INFM Workshop on Porting Scientific Application on Computational Grids Pag 13

DL definition adopted by DILIGENT • “A digital library is an institution which performs DL definition adopted by DILIGENT • “A digital library is an institution which performs and/or supports (at least) the functions of a library in the context of distributed, networked collections of information objects in digital form. • The functions meant are: • selecting, collecting, preserving, organizing, representing, providing access to, ensuring knowledge of, and disseminating information objects, • mediating and supporting interaction between information users and information objects. ” By Nickolas Belkin 16 February 2006 ICTP/INFM Workshop on Porting Scientific Application on Computational Grids Pag 14
