Streams, structures, spaces, scenarios, societies (5s): A formal model for digital libraries
The fundamental abstractions of Streams, Structures, Spaces, Scenarios, and Societies (5S), which allow us to define digital libraries rigorously and usefully, are proposed.

A digital library for authors: recent progress of the networked digital library of theses and dissertations
NDLTD activities include: applying automation methods to simplify submission of ETDs over the WWW; specifying the application of the Dublin Core to guarantee that metadata can satisfy needs of searching and browsing; selecting open standards and procedures to facilitate interoperability and preservation; and demonstrating a variety of interfaces, both 2D and 3D, along with exploring their usability.
The networked digital library of theses and dissertations: Changes in the university community

NDLTD: Preparing the next generation of scholars for the information age
The NDLTD is an international consortium aimed at improving graduate education, enhancing universities’ information infrastructure, and increasing scholarship by sharing through digital libraries by measuring its success by the number of universities that are members and the quality of those ETDs.
A Web art gallery
The design and implementation of a virtual art gallery on the Web to provide a navigational environment for the Networked Digital Library of Theses and Dissertations (NDLTD), where users can browse and search electronic theses and dissertations indexed by the pictures--images and figures--that the ETDs contain.
Sets and Functions : A Foundation for Digital Libraries , through Streams , Spaces , Structures , and Scenarios ( S 4 )
