Digital Library

Dear Nenad,
Here are some links that you might want to check out. They'll give you an overview of some of the projects going on right now in digital libraries. One of the really interesting things about the library community is that it is both very conservative and very radical at the same time. Conservative, because it is organized around very traditional values: preserving intellectual and cultural knowledge. Radical, because the community is committed to the open access of information. The library community shares everything it learns and develops among its members. It operates for the most part in a non-profit, non-competitive framework, even though there are a lot of problems in libraries, mainly having to do with funding.

One of the organizers of the Libraries in the Digital Age Conference, Tatjana Aparac. is going to be in the U.S in mid-November for a few weeks at a conference and giving presentations. 

All my best,
Marta
