Título: Digital Libraries and Virtual Workplaces. Important Initiatives for Latin America in the Information Age

CHAPTER 4
OVERVIEW OF DIGITAL LIBRARY COMPONENTS AND DEVELOPMENTS
Edward A. Fox
Virginia Tech
ABSTRACT

Digital libraries are being built upon a firm foundation of prior work as the high-end information systems of the future.  A component approach is becoming popular, with well-established support for key components like the repository, especially through the Open Archives Initiative.  Thus, we separately consider digital objects, metadata, harvesting, indexing, searching, browsing, rights management, linking, and powerful interfaces.  Flexible integration will be possible through a variety of architectures, using buses, agents, and other technologies.  The field as a whole is undergoing rapid growth, supported by advances in storage, processing, networking, algorithms, and interaction. There are many initiatives and developments, including those supporting education, and these will certainly be of benefit in Latin America.
