Castelli D. Digital Library of the future - and the role of libraries. In: Library Hi Tech, vol. 24 (4) pp. 496 - 503. Academic information services: new paradigms for the digital age. Proceedings of the 8th International Bielefeld Conference, 7-9 February 2006, Bielefeld, Germany. Norber Lossau and Sabine Rahmsdorf (eds.). Emerald Group Publishing Limited, 2006.
Digital libraries of the future will give access to a large variety of multimedia and multi-type documents created by integrating content from many different heterogeneous sources that range from repositories of text, images, and audio-video, to scientific data archives, and databases. The digital library will provide a seamless environment where the co-operative access, filtering, manipulation, generation, and preservation of these documents will be supported as a continuous cycle. Users of the library will be both consumers and producers of information, either by themselves or in collaborations with other users. Policy ensuring mechanisms will guarantee that the information produced is visible only to those who have the appropriate rights to access it. The realisation of these new digital libraries requires both the provision of a new technology and a change in the role played by the libraries in the information access-production cycle.
