In 1991, a group of researchers chose the term digital libraries
to describe an emerging field of research, development, and practice.
Since then, Virginia Tech has had funded research in this area, largely
through its Digital Library Research Laboratory. This book is the first
in a four book series that reports our key findings and current research
investigations. Underlying this book series are six completed
dissertations (Gonçalves, Kozievitch, Leidig, Murthy, Shen, Torres),
eight dissertations underway, and many masters theses. These reflect our
experience with a long string of prototype or production systems
developed in the lab, such as CITIDEL, CODER, CTRnet, Ensemble, ETANA,
ETD-db, MARIAN, and Open Digital Libraries. There are hundreds of
related publications, presentations, tutorials, and reports. We have
built upon that work so this book, and the others in the series, will
address digital library related needs in many computer science,
information science, and library science (e.g., LIS) courses, as well as
the requirements of researchers, developers, and practitioners....
