Abstract

Digital Libraries are information systems that store digital objects, and have associated services for accessing, managing, and preserving the digital objects. Digital Libraries began as an abstraction layered over databases to provide higher level services. As the services and tools became more complex, they became more difficult to maintain, extend and reuse. One possible solution is to explicitly avoid formalisms, abstractions and Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) so that Digital Library Systems are more easily adopted and managed.
