Digital libraries (DLs) are complex information systems and therefore demand formal foundations lest development efforts diverge and interoperability suffers. [...] Key Result The applicability, versatility, and unifying power of the 5S model are demonstrated through its use in three distinct applications: building and interpretation of a DL taxonomy, informal and formal analysis of case studies of digital libraries (NDLTD and OAI), and utilization as a formal basis for a DL description language.Expand
5SL: a language for declarative specification and generation of digital libraries
TLDR
5SL is a declarative language for specifying and generating domain-specific digital libraries and enables high-level specification of DLs in five complementary dimensions, including: the kinds of multimedia information the DL supports (Stream Model); how that information is structured and organized (Structural Model).

Streams, Structures, Spaces,Scenarios, and Societies (5S): A Formal Digital Library Framework and Its Applications
TLDR
This dissertation proposes the fundamental abstractions of Streams, Structures, Spaces, Scenarios, and Societies (5S), which allow us to define digital libraries rigorously and usefully. Expand
Rapid Modeling, Prototyping, and Generation of Digital Libraries- A Theory-Based Approach
TLDR
This paper presents an architecture and a family of tools that allow rapid modeling, prototyping, and generation of digital libraries, and maintains semantic constraints specified by a 5S metamodel and enforces these constraints over the instance model to ensure semantic consistency and correctness.

PuntTable: A Flexible Repository System for Digital Library
TLDR
This paper analyzes the data structures and workloads of services provided by modern DLs and proposes a data-storage strategy model, and describes the development of PuntTable, a flexible repository system for DLs. Expand
Key Issues Regarding Digital Libraries: Evaluation and Integration
TLDR
The first comprehensive 5S-based formal description of the DL integration problem is provided, cast in the context of related work, and ETANADL, for integrating Near Eastern Archeology sites and information is described. Expand
Digital Library Technologies: Complex Objects, Annotation, Ontologies, Classification, Extraction, and Security
TLDR

NESTOR: A formal model for digital archives
TLDR
An innovative formal model, called NEsted SeTs for Object hieRarchies (NESTOR), for archives, explicitly built around the concepts of context and hierarchy which play a central role in the archival realm is proposed. Expand
The Role of Digital Libraries in Moving Toward Knowledge Environments
TLDR
It is illustrated how suitable knowledge environments can be more easily prepared as instances of these meta-models, resulting in usable and useful DLs, including for education, computing, and archaeology. Expand

We describe the development, implementation, and deployment of a new generic digital library generator yielding implementations of digital library services from models of DL “societies” andExpand
Towards a Formal Theory for Complex Objects and Content-Based Image Retrieval
TLDR
The theoretical extensions of digital library functionality presented here cover complex image objects, within a practical case study, to exemplify the integrative use of services, thus balancing theory and practice. Expand

A formal model of views for object-oriented database systems
TLDR
This paper formally introduces a view model for object-oriented databases, comparable to existing view models for what concerns the supported features; however, this model is the only one for which a formal de nition is given. Expand
