  • e- learning

  • e-culture

    Common elements:

  • e-information and documentation (e-service based on digital documents)

    • brief pieces of information (web pages)

    • access to reference repository (addresses to different sites)

    • access to library services (e-books, access to catalogues)

Digital library european initiative
“Digital Library” European Initiative

The “i2010” EU Initiative proposes the creation of an information european space through:

  • the improval of on-line library services that are offered to users

  • the development of multicultural and multilingual digital contents

  • the development of an European network of “digital centers” (digital data collection and user free access anytime, anywhere)

Classical vs digital libraries
Classical vs. digital libraries

  • Classical library

    • a repository of knowledge organisedmainly on paper

  • Digital library

    • Not only a digitisedversion of a classical library

    • A new set of functionalities and services are added (e.g. access control, resource management and allocation, complex search and processing services, etc.)

    • A data exchange and cooperation environment

    • A variety of formats and data types ( text, audio, video, multi-document complex digital objects)

    • DLs are digital content management system

    • New on-line services for citizens

  • DL - a knowledge repository and an information exchangeinfrastructure that allows data generation, processing and seamless access to relevant information, regardless of the geographic distribution of hardware resources, databases or persons.

  • Goals: to define and implement digital libraries on new computing and communication technologies

  • Achievements: definition of functional and architectural requirements for DL implementation

  • BRICKS project

    • Goals: to design a user and service-oriented space to shareknowledge and resources in a multi-cultural heritage.

    • Achievements:

      • digital library architecture for a very broad and heterogeneous user community; automatic indexing and annotation functionalities

  • OpenDlib project

    • Goal: development of a software toolkit for dedicated DLs generation

    • Achievements: tools for content harvesting form existing resources

European Digital Library – EDL (e-Content+) – (2006 – 2008):

  • online service to 9 national library contents (Belgium, Greece, Iceland, Ireland, Liechtenstein, Sweden, Norway, Spain and Luxemburg)

  • in 2008 EDL became “EUROPEANA”

  • 2 new recommendations in this field:

  • Council Conclusions on Digitisation and Online Accessibility of Cultural Material and Digital Preservation (2006/C 297/01)

  • Commission recommendation on digitisation and online accesibility of cultural material and digital preservation (2006/585/EC)

  • On-line services for free access to library information

  • Improving the digital content

  • Encourageing the national initiative in DL and ON-LINE SERVICES FOR CITIZENS

    • an unique access point to the national cultural heritage in digital form:

    • documents (libraries)

    • mobile heritage (museum collections)

    • audio-visual (audio-video archive)

    • non-mobile heritage (monuments, archeological sites)

    • archives (written documents)

  • Main objectives:

  • improving the on-line user access to documents

  • multiuser – simultaneous access to documents

  • promotion of Romanian culture all over the world

  • Research Project in Romania Digital Library :

  • First research project oriented to the e-services based on digital content at a national level NUSIDOC – www.Rolinest.ro:

  • Results:

  • access to data-bases of 4 university libraries (Cluj, Iasi, Timisoara, Bucharest) and the Polytechnic University of Timisoara Library and the Public Library from Targu-Mures

  • multilingual interfaces to the digital resources

Conclusions Digital Library :

  • EU promotes and supports e-services for citizens in the libraries

  • EU promotes and supports the developing of digital content (audio-visual, documents, museums, archives)

  • Governments support the developing of e-services in libraries and digital library expansion

  • The Romanian Government supports the on-line services for citizens in the library field and a strategy is being initiated

  • The research projects created represent a first step for digital library development in Romania

  • There is a large field of action for new tools and products in the on-line library services to be developed
