The NSF/DARPA/NASA Digital Library Initiative (DLI)
Six federal funded projects in digital library research, with
partnerships led by universities. The individual projects are
The Computer Science Technical Reports Project (CSTR)
A collaboration involving CNRI, five universities, and the Library
The project, begun in 1992, started the process of creating network
access to archives of technical information in the domain of
computer science (search the
NCSTRL - the Networked Computer Science Technical Reports
Library for CompSci Reports).
A forum for researchers and developers of advanced digital libraries.
NASA's Digital Library Technology Project
A project that supports the development of new technologies to
facilitate public access to NASA data via computer networks.
The Coalition for Networked Information
A joint project of the Association of Research Libraries, CAUSE,
and EDUCOM to promote information resources in networked environments.
The Universal Library Project
The mission of the Universal Library project is to start
a worldwide movement to make available ALL the Authored
Works of Mankind on the Internet.This is a major new
initiative in digital libraries that will build a technically realistic
and economically practical infrastructure for putting and accessing
library documents on the World Wide Web.
The purpose of TexShare is to support and enhance resource sharing
among Texas academic libraries. The program provides incentives for
academic libraries to share their combined resources and collections
to enrich the intellectual capabilities of all Texas academic
The ERCIM Digital Library Initiative
Information on all the ERCIM Digital library activities.
- the European Research Consortium for Informatics and Mathematics -
aims to foster collaborative work within the European research community
and to increase co-operation with European industry.
ERCIM News No. 27 (October 1996) with the Special Theme: Digital
EUROPAGATE: Multifunctional Gateway for Information Retrieval Protocols
This project aims to build and operate a pilot service through which
users can access ANSI Z39.50 and ISO SR servers which provide on-line
access to catalogues. Users requests will be handled over widely
available data networks (e.g. public X.25, IXI and TCP/IP-based networks)
using existing clients which incorporate the ANSI and ISO standards.
Requests will also be processed via e-mail and World Wide Web.
I'M EUROPE: Telematics for Libraries Programme (EU)
Research and development in the libraries sector of the Telematics
Programme aims to facilitate access to the wealth of knowledge held in
libraries throughout the European Union, while reducing disparities
between national systems and practice.
A list of over 50 significant digital library-related research projects
within the TELEMATICS programme.
eLib - The Electronic Libraries Programme (UK)
15 million GBP programme aimed to "transform the use and storage of knowledge
in higher education institutions". Currently, roughly 60 projects are being
funded, though this number changes as some projects are completed while
new ones are funded.
The Medoc project (DE)
The largest 'all-digital' initiative in Germany, sponsored by the Federal
Ministry of Research for two years starting in September 1995 to provide
access to computer science literature over the Web. It is lead by
a consortium of FIZ Karlsruhe, The German Society of Computer Science
Professionals and Springer Verlag.
