Table of Contents

There was a discussion on diglib a while ago about what is a digital library. This was more interesting than most, especially when it came to Eric Hellman’s question about whether particular services counted as digital libraries or not.

A digital library is “Any collection of digital resources managed with the primary goal of maximizing the collection’s utility to a defined user community”. [diglib@infoserv.inist.fr]
