The Almaden distributed digital library system
- 121 Downloads
In this chapter we describe the architecture for the Almaden Distributed Digital Library System, which is intended to support an emerging “information marketplace”. Using a distributed server approach and accommodating heterogeneous environments, the system is designed to meet the diverse needs of the publishers, distributors, and users of scientific journal information at low cost, while protecting the information assets of the publishers and the privacy of the users. A prototype is currently being implemented in a joint effort by IBM Almaden Research Center and the Institute for Scientific Information. A pilot is planned to test the system and to explore new economic models.
