Hypermedia technologies for supporting scholarly work in digital libraries

International Journal of Computer Applications in Technology (IJCAT), Vol. 16, No. 2/3, 2003

Abstract: Digital libraries offer much promise for patrons and many challenges for system designers and developers. We envision digital libraries as being more than a relatively permanent and fixed archival collection of digital material to be browsed and queried by information-seeking individuals. A digital library is a versioned (fixed and fluid) and interconnected collection of both permanent and transient documents that allows collaborative as well as individual work practices. Based on this view, the HyTech Digital Library Project focuses on development of hypermedia infrastructure for a special kind of digital library that provides support for scholarly work. HyTech has two main goals: to develop advanced hypermedia infrastructure (middleware services), and to deploy the developed middleware services in a digital library setting. The development and deployment has been driven by the requirements that arise from analysing a specific digital library project.
