Uma arquitetura genérica para sistemas de biblioteca digital como pretexto para criação de uma agenda de pesquisa

Source: OAI

ABSTRACT Digital libraries are very complex systems that integrate a range of services for capturing, cataloguing, storing, searching, retrieval, preservation and management of digital information. Each one of the different conceptions of digital libraries adopts a different architecture and model. This paper discusses the basics concepts and principles involved in design and architecture of digital libraries, while proposes a generic architecture for them. From this generic architecture a list of research topics is extracted. These research topics are intended to cover the main issues of digital library area.

    ABSTRACT: This paper presents OpenDLib, a digital li- brary infrastructure that provides capabilities for new- generation digital libraries. In particular, the paper intro- duces a document model that can be used to represent a wide variety of document types and describes the open architectural infrastructure that allows for the expansion of the digital library through the dynamic plugin of new services.

    ABSTRACT: Digital Libraries (DLs) have traditionally been positioned at the intersection of library science, computer science, and networked information systems. The different underlying philosophies of these three fields has had an unsettling influence on the development of DLs. While library science is fairly mature, networked information systems are constantly evolving to keep pace with Internet innovation. DLs are thus expected to demonstrate the careful management of libraries while supporting standards that evolve at an astonishing pace. This architectural moving target is a predicament that all DLs face sooner or later in their lifecycle, and one that few manage to deal with effectively. To exacerbate this problem, there has been a general desire for systems to be interoperable at the levels of data exchange and service collaboration. Such interoperability requirements necessitated the development of standards such as the Dublin Core Metadata Element Set and the Open Archives Initiative's Protocol for Metadata Harvesting (OAI-PMH). These standards have achieved a degree of success in the DL community largely because of their generality and simplicity. Informed by those lessons, this project is an attempt to consistently extend known interoperability standards to form the basis of a framework of components for building extensible DLs. Preamble "Open" is a word that conjures up many different connotations depending on the context in which it is used. In this case its use is deemed appropriate since Open Digital Libraries (ODLs) build directly upon the concepts and philosophies of the Open Archives Initiative [OAI, 2001]. Just as Open Archives are data repositories that allow remote access using a simple and well-defined publicly available protocol, so too will ODLs accomplish the same in the context of service components. Extension of standards, such as the OAI-PMH [Lagoze and Van de Sompel, 2001], is another contentious issue since it invariably adds undesirable complexity. This work is based on the premise that if a new standard is needed, it is better derived from an existing and accepted one as long as the two are completely separable.
