ConclusionIn this paper we briefly described the current status of research in the field of digital libraries interoperability, mainly with respect to federated data processing such as permitted within the Open Archive Initiative framework. We then presented the CERN Document Server Software suite that is a free software package main-tained by CERN providing an online digital library solution for mid- to large-sized document repositories. The set of CDSware modules was described and the differ…

CERN Document Server Software: the integrated digital library
The design philosophy of CDSware and its modular, extensible, architecture is discussed and by means of a flow-chart the operational workflow of the system is presented, depicting its module interactions.
CDSware (CERN Document Server Software)
The paper presents a detailed description of highly (technically and bibliographically) developed software in order to help libraries in deciding which open source software is more suitable for their digitization project.
Simple Digital Libraries
The study outlined some possible implications of simplifying DLS design; specifically, the results from the developer-oriented user study indicate that simplicity in the design of the DLS repository sub-layer does not severely impact the interaction between the service sub- layer and the repositorySub-layer.
Polythematic Structured Subject Heading System & Creative Commons
This article presents how knowledge organisation systems in general and Polythematic Structured Subject Heading System in particular can be used in the context of grey literature resources and suggests some of the functions these systems can fulfill in the grey literature environment, such as metadata authoring, search query refinement, or alternative ways of navigation.
Rank Aggregation in Scientific Publication Databases Based on Logistic Regression
The most important achievements notably include a c reation of an extended CDS referential as an IR evaluation resource, implementation of two d-Rank software modules for query parsing and document ranking and creation of a rank aggregation framework based on logistic regression.


Arc - An OAI Service Provider for Digital Library Federation
The experience and lessons learned in building Arc, the first federated searching service based on the OAI protocol, are described, which should be applicable to others who seek to build an OAI service provider.
Institutional Repositories: Essential Infrastructure For Scholarship In The Digital Age
The thinking about digital preservation over the past five years has advanced to the point where the needs are widely recognized and well defined, the technical approaches at least superficially mapped out, and the need for action is now clear.

The Santa Fe Convention of the Open Archives Initiative
The convention presents a simple technical and organizational framework to support basic interoperability among e-print archives and participants have expressed the intention of implementing this framework to allow for interoperability experiments in the course of the year 2000.
Toward conceptual indexing using automatic assignment of descriptors
The core of this system is described, the automatic descriptor assigner, which can be used to manage a collection of documents related to thesaurus, and user can manipulate them in a more conceptual way.
Automatic keywording of High Energy Physics
Bibliographic databases were developed from the traditional library card catalogue in order to enable users to access library documents via various types of bibliographic information, such as title,
