Towards A Central Digital Library Knowledge Space Aligning And Connecting Digital Libraries Globally. Iryna, S.
abstract   bibtex   
Digital Libraries are organized collections of digital knowledge content developed, maintained and made available to the public in order to meet the totality of information needs for a given end user. The investigation of Digital Library world, provided in this paper, has been based on a series of information resources (research articles, project reports, items from conferences, workshops, professional group discussions) regarding core Digital Library issues (reference models, metadata, interoperability, quality, technical and organizational aspects). Through summarizing the state-of-the-art, the article considers the most relevant research problems and open challenges for Digital Library. A number of professional communities are uniting their collaborative efforts to create community Knowledge Bases providing timely support to information workers about personalization of recommendations as well as common vision of different tools and resources that can be applied to the specific Digital Library information management context (considering its heterogeneity) to align Digital Library resources (contents and data) worldwide. Great potential of Digital Library services offers a range of benefits to researchers, teaching academics, learners, institutions, the global research community and the wider world. Some of these benefits are key drivers for the development of a Global Digital Library, which will provide more benefits and more value for each stakeholder group than ever before. On the road to a Global Digital Library it is quite necessary not only to have a common vision, but also a common virtual collaborative Digital Library Knowledge Space welcoming centrally all interested parties to exchange and to promote openly their proposals, questions and solutions to contribute to and to assess together the accuracy of conceptual scalability and computational complexity of Digital Library universe. The collaborative Digital Library Knowledge Space structure should have sufficient flexibility to accommodate the needs of various groups of information specialists and users.
