What Is a Digital Library Anyway?

Carl Lagoze, Dean B. Kraft, Sandy Payette, Susan Jesuroga
2005 D-Lib Magazine  
The model allows the aggregation of local and remote data in multiple formats. Web-accessible services may then be associated with the data aggregated in a digital object.  ...  These semantically meaningful aggregations in the data model are the foundation for rich contextualization of resources in the library.  ...

Characterizing Same Work Relationships in Large-Scale Digital Libraries [chapter]

Peter Organisciak, Summer Shetenhelm, Danielle Francisco Albuquerque Vasques, Krystyna Matusiak
2019 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Following from work in algorithmically identifying duplicate works in the HathiTrust Digital Library, we present some cases that complicate our existing language for work entity relationships.  ...  These serve to contextualize the complexities of same-work alignment in digital libraries, ground future discussion around content similarity, and inform methods to better identify duplicates in large-scale  ...  The HathiTrust aggregates metadata and full-text materials not only from multiple libraries, but from multiple digitization initiatives.  ...
