Tutorial 6: Building Digital Libraries on Service Oriented Architectures: Challenges, Experiences, and Results
Full day

The tutorial discusses the core ideas of building digital libraries on distributed infrastructures and the related architectural options. The main part of the tutorial revolves around how core DL functionality like Digital Library Management, Content and Collection Management, Metadata Management and Brokering, Search and Retrieval and Advanced Services (Personalization, Annotation, etc.) can be built by exploiting P2P and Grid technological frameworks. For each of the topics the key challenges are discussed together with possible solutions for the challenges and the lessons learned in implementing these solutions in concrete projects. The solutions are illustrated with concrete examples and demos from the projects DILIGENT, BRICKS, and DELOS as well as from other DL-related projects.

Target Audience:
The tutorial is mainly targeted towards researchers and practitioners that are working in the area of digital libraries, digital library architectures, and innovative digital library services. Furthermore, the tutorial will also be an opportunity for other players to gain insights in the area of current developments in the area of next generation digital library architectures and new applications of Grid technology and the Peer-to-peer paradigm.

Level of experience required:
Introductory to intermediate.
